St. Ildephonsus College - New Norcia

New Norcia was named after Norcia in Italy, the birthplace of the monastery's order's founder, St Benedict.

St. Ildephonsus College for Boys in the historic monastic town of New Norcia was opened in 1913 and originally staffed by the Marist Brothers. The Benedictines took over the teaching in the college in 1965.

Located 132 km from Perth, New Norcia is a combination of architecture in the forms of a monastery, two schools, a church, and a number of tourist attractions.
