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

Interesting that we were not in a particularly good mood when we arrived but left feeling more peacefull and relazed! We are not the types for meditation, belief sort of stuff but this monastery is really down to earth without the riches of modern churches...More

I stopped by to have a look and found there was a talk beginning soon. I was invited to stay and had a beautiful meditation and talk to attend, all within the tranquil setting.

Amazingly, beautiful place. I hope to return someday to do a meditation retreat. Am sure people already would come from around Australia as it is. Opens at 10am.
