The former St Joseph’s Convent of Mercy – The Old Convent - in Broken Hill is set to be auctioned by Colliers International. 

The property, located at 232 Lane Street, Broken Hill is a key part of the area’s history.

At its peak, St. Joseph’s Convent of Mercy was home to over 70 nuns, boasting a school for girls and boarding facilities and was the main convent in the area.

After being destroyed by a fire in 1979, the prominent heritage asset received extensive restoration and renovation. 

The L-shaped parcel of land, with dual frontages onto Lane Street and Sulphide Street has a substantial site area of 6,350 square metres.

It is expected to sell for upwards of $1 million. 

“This is a prime re-positioning opportunity for the complex which comprises six separate buildings including 11 self-contained residential units, an auditorium, function room, commercial grade kitchen and generous on-site parking,” said Clarence Chan at Colliers International.

The property is 900 metres north-west of Broken Hill’s main Town Centre and 1 kilometre from the Broken Hill Railway station. 

The Old Convent, Broken Hill will be auctioned on May 9.
