  • Good day trip. Had a moment of inner peace there in the midst of the temple grounds. Well kept and absurdly clean. Open to everyone but has a dress code. Also has a gift shop.
  • Great location a fair amount of parking with a portion of it being parallel and tight spaces so be warned, protect your car, park carefully, and away from others. You are not allowed to take photos inside the temples, and are asked not to touch instruments of worship etc. Lots of information to learn all about what Buddhism is. You will see monks out and about, feel free to talk to them. The First temple you can walk into and light incence and pray etc. The second temple is a bit grander and requires removal of shoes. Expect to see many people praying, if you're an athiest, please stow your criticisms. The garden is very well kept with plenty to explore, there are toilets and drinking fountain's around and a tea shop at the base of the temple which no doubt provides a lot of the funds for the temple. On this, 1 tea is enough for 2 people and it ain't cheap, so share the love. 😉 I would say this is more of a learning experience than a sight-seeing experience. Though the architectural style, gardens and grounds layout will offer a pleasurable experience, if you spend time here you will leave with a better understanding and perhaps appreciation of Buddhism.
  • I've visit here once, the atmosphere is quiet, I like it. This temple is also huge, too. Architecture style isn't make me upset, very like the details of the temple. The vegetarian food serve pretty well done, no dissatisfaction here. Final thing: Pretty well done temple in the Wollongong.
  • Excellent place noteworthy seeing it. Beautiful vistas and aprawling temple grounds. Parking is always difficult particularly around important religious days. There are meditation classes where you can stay for a few days as well as other courses such as calligraphy and tea. The restaurant offers vegetarian buddhust options with soft drinks and teas. A good overall experience.
  • A very relaxing place to casually walk about. We ate at Dew Drop Inn, food was great, and staff were nice and fast. The atmosphere of the whole place is great.
