This is well worth looking at if you are in the region. Very serene ! Even if you are not a buddhist you will enjoy the atmosphere here and the surroundings.Lunch in the great hall is good - vegetarians are catered for. Leaving shoes at the temple door can sometimes frighten people off but it is really a great experience.... More

Any visitor to the Wollongong area should not miss this temple. Beautifully kept grounds for wonderful photographs. Even if you know nothing about the Buddhist religion you will still enjoy the atmosphere. Be prepared to leave shoes at the door of the temple. We have taken overseas visitors there many times and will do it again next week.

Lovely to spend an hour or so, the vegetarian lunch is pretty good too if you're there at the time. The architecture is pretty cool.

It's a picture perfect spot for all Buddha and China lovers. Very soothing. There is an authentic Chinese restaurant too. Plan your trip according to Buddhist festivals or in accordance with Chinese festivals

We have been many times often taking overseas visitors there for lunch or morning tea. The grounds and gardens are lovely and it is very peaceful. The architecture is superb.

Great Clean Grounds , Soak in a little bit of the Buddhist religion . Stay for the day to learn what this religion has to offer and a bit of self awareness/ personal development. Stroll the grounds and enjoy the country side while snapping a few photos.
