  • Very impressive, still a work in progress but they have a vision of where its going and its going to be a while before they get there, but isn't that part of the journey. the tour guide Rhonda was excellent and very patient with all our questions. The great Stupa at the moment is only available while on the tour but that happens on a regular basis. The gardens are going to be super impressive. Overall, a very informative and easy introduction to Buddhism and the meaning of the Stupa. No pressure by anyone, in fact several monks went out of their way to say Happy Easter to everyone.
  • Amazing and so tranquil . Can't wait to see the completion of the Great Stupa
  • Absolutey stunning will go back over time to watch this all unfold
  • This is where we spent yesterday it was without a doubt an amazing experience they are still building it but our guide gave us a brilliant tour explaining in great detail why the plants and trees were there. It is hard to put into words. Still trying to absorb everything about it will post some photo's later we were invited to take our dog Suki in on a lead and he was so well behaved, as were Max and Amelia I think we were all very subdued the serenity just everything about it if ever you are in Bendigo or even just come to Bendigo to see it, the work they are doing and plan on doing is breathtaking we plan to return hopefully for one of the festivals have a look for it online it will give you an idea of what I am talking about. Definitely will seriously try and be there for opening wouldn't miss it for quids
  • Spent 2 hours there, what a lovely serene place. First of many visits.
