  • What a fantastic place. So very relaxing here on a week day. Wonderful scenery, paved pathways surrounding the temple, plenty of parking. Two restaurants for grabbing a bit but you may want to consider taking a packed lunch? Few stairs to climb but you can take you're time. There is also a gift shop here.
  • What an amazing place to visit. Beautiful grounds, well kept and such a quiet peaceful place. Only about 1.5 hrs from Sydney it is definitely worth the drive down. Only spent the afternoon there, but could easily stay longer and do a lunch at the vege restaurant. A must visit for a tranquil and amazing experience, will be going back for sure. Note: there is a dress code that should be observed. Pants, closed shoes and no singlets.
