  • Big temple, very friendly, calm and spacious. Learn about Buddhism or go to worship. She dance/meditation classes available. Not too remarkable though
  • Very Serene and peaceful. Well maintained temple and beautiful grounds. No singlets or shorts allowed, please cover up!
  • Tranquil serenity just a short drive from Wollongong. Once or twice a year my boyfriend and I make a special trip from sydney to meditate and reflect here. We sit near the lotus pond and light incense in the main building. The vegetarian food hall has a great set menu that's worth checking out. The tea house is al la carte and also very special. My favourite is the jasmine tea jelly.
  • Most times this place is very quiet and relaxing. When you go inside the temple you take your shoes of and the smell of the candles is amazing. There is a lot to see if you like relaxing surroundings.
  • This is the largest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere. The land was acquired for $1 and Prince Charles donated $18mil to build this temple. Sadly it is ran like a commercial company rather than the buddhist teaching that it preaches.
