Nan Tien is very different from most tourist attractions because there is so much to offer: the visual delights of grandeur architecture, art & culture including unique exhibitions & festivals, Buddhist festivals, vegetarian culinary delights, educational & healthy life style classes & retreats, accommodation, top class conference and auditorium facilities as well as beautiful gardens & walks. There is also the spiritual and religious experience that is unforgettable and even life changing for some.

I have visited this temple 4-5 times & I can go there again many more times.. I feel peace after going here & visiting several shrines inside it. It covers a large area. And the Gratitude Bell carries a good meaning. The cafe is good providing simple nice vegetarian meal. A must go place !...

A beautiful winters day to wander around such a serene environment. Just walk around, the grounds are delightful. Stop for a while. Take a few moments to reflect. Enjoy it all. There is some lovely food available also - but its just the place. A beautiful jewel for the Illawarra. A definite must for visitors - the largest temple in... More

The Nan Tien temple is a very tranquil place to visit and the grounds and temples are fantastic to behold. You can even get a very good vegetarian for about $15. A great place to go and relax.

I really enjoyed this experience. The temple itself is so well maintained and mesmerizing. The grounds are beautiful to walk around. The cafe does a good coffee and some of the best spring rolls I have ever had! I was expecting to pay a fee to enter the temple but it was free which is always a plus. Would definitely... More

Great for the Illawarra. The kids enjoy it and get to experience something other than theme parks etc. The Vegetarian Restuarant is surprisingly nice. It is basic bistro style but fresh and healthy.

2 hours ish drive south from Sydney. Half day to spend at the temple is enough if you are just going to visit the place. The space has a few different temples, is a beautiful greenery scenario, so many different birds and a small pond. It has also car park, and it's free, what is a bonus! Has bathroom facilities...
