The facility is not that large, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in the beauty of it's surrounds and the absolute peace and tranquility that only nature can provide. Situated three quarters of the way down an unpaved gravel road, it...More

Great place to visit on Sundays for a meditation, and chanting by the lovely monks followed by lunch. The whole family can enjoy a peaceful and spiritual experience in Bundanoon. Take the time to stop and reflect on your life in this beautiful place.

Strange forest monastery. Huge lovely grounds, stuffed with temples, statues, reliefs, outhouses and oddities. Some really strange stuff such as a swimming pool sized map of the world. Monks in silence. Very peaceful. Peacock strutting around and wombat too! Interesting visit.

Great shop with quirky, interesting homewares, kids' toys and puzzles, lighting, some soft furnishings. Nice window display. Well worth a visit. Was packed on the day we went, a Sunday.

Growing up with Buddhist parents, I come here quite often since I was a child. It great to see it develop over the years. The first thing I always notice when coming here is the quietness and clean fresh air. I normally drive straight here...More
