As other reviews of the Great Stupa mention, it is still heavily under construction and no where near completion. However to me this actually adds to the experience. The possibility to see something at this stage, and then come back in ten years time and...More

I never knew we had one in australia and especially of this size! It's massive! It's about 10min drive out from Bendigo and I really enjoyed it! It's amazing we have something like this in the middle of the bush

Situated in a 250 Acre land donated by an Australian Catholic to Buddhists with the help of Dalai Lama of Tibet. Nice surroundings and nice place to visit and to see some relics.

Whilst it looks a bit bland (at first), just remember that all the other stupas (great and small) around the globe took many, many years to develop. You can see this one in the making. The concrete specification is high enough to last a thousand...More

Not the easiest place to find but worth the trip. My initial thought was how far from finished this place is but that was soon replaced by the peace and quiet. I was able to imagine how it would all look once the building work...More
