This is a very large Chinese Buddhist temple complex, and in fact it is the largest in the southern hemisphere.
There are three large shrines here:
The main shrine,the great mercy hall and the pagoda.
There is also a meditation hall,a museum and gift shop a restaurant, a tea room,conference room, lotus pond and garden and a information centre.
Accommodation is also available there at the pilgrims lodge.
I'm not Buddhist ,but there is definitely a atmosphere of calm and peace here and I like to visit this place before I fly anywhere. ;-)

Address: Berkeley road Berkeley N.S.W
Directions: Heading south exit the freeway at Five Islands road and then follow the signs to Nan Tien.
