    Felt really great visiting a temple after a long time. We were in Sydney for a weekend and decided to visit the temple and it was absolutely worth the drive. Temple is big and feels like some place in...  more »
  • Great ambience. Very peaceful and calming. It's being closest to the nature you can get !! It's huge and clean - just lovely ! The canteen offers decent food.
  • Favourite temple for the past twenty five years. Love to attend New Year midnight prayer. Enjoy the canteen food. Thanks for all the volunteers who help in temple and canteen. It is very much appreciated.
  • Love this temple but it's still a work in progress with much of the exterior still not painted - that's not a complaint, just an observation. It will look spectacular when it's done. I'm not a Hindu and can only compare the temple to Hare Krishna temples in Australia but this dwarfs them - it's huge! The first time I went the food was simple and FREE but donations accepted. Now, there's a fairly expensive canteen. Good for a snack, though.
  • Wow what a spiritual place. For a minute it feels like you are somewhere in South India. Nestled in a quite and serene forest area. Your whole day can be planned around your Pooja day. Arrive early visit the Venkatesh temple. And also the Balaji temple. All facilities are available. Pooja thalli is available at $20 each. The priest will do your Pooja or prayers. He will ask your 'Gotra' and 'Rashi' if you don't know you can just give your name. Take time to see all the deities. It's well carved. Outside at the back is temple canteen. Serving full vegetarian meals, sweets and beverages. Masala tea is very refreshing. Food is great and well priced. Tasty South Indian food. Canteen setup could be improved. Usually very long wait. I am sure the Mandir authorities are working on this. On the way back home. Make a point to visit seacliff bridge, another must see view.
  • Amazing temple!!! After I visited Symbio Wildlife Park and past by this hidden place. Just Amazing place!!!
