The Nan Tien Temple is the largest Buddhist Temple in the Southern Hemisphere, situated in Berkeley, the suburb of Wollongang. The temple holds a lot of importance as it propagates the Buddhist faith and culture. However, apart from the religious faith for which this temple is important for, it is also famous for its grand architecture, art and culture including unique exhibitions and festivals, Buddhist festivals, vegetarian culinary delights, educational and healthy lifestyle classes and retreats, accommodation, top class conference and auditorium facilities. The temple is just 10 minutes south of Wollongong City and is a must visit for spiritual rejuvenation.

Nan Tien Temple, Wollongong Reviews
The hidden gem in the Southern city of Wollongong. This temple is magnificent! I always feel the peace that Buddism is all about. Just a short drive from Sydney, the temple is such a sanctuary for everyone who wants to find inner peace. The air is so clean, the scene is so beautiful. With the weekly classes and provided accommodation, It is indeed not just for religious cause but also for the best retreat and tourist attraction.
Nan Tien Temple was wonderful to visit! Very peaceful & tranquil. The temple has many gardens to walk through & don't forget to walk up to the Bell of Gratitude - the views were absolutely breathtaking! There are two places to eat at the temple, the Tea house which is on the ground floor, serving a wide variety of vegetarian meals & another hall up on the third floor. Being almost spring, the big willow trees at the pond were bare so I would love to come back when they are full, lush and green. In saying this - the pond was still amazing to sit down by, watch the koi and lose myself for a few moments. Highly recommend!
The temple and grounds are gorgeous. When you stop for a moment you realise just how calm and peaceful the place is. Unfortunately the new restaurant downstairs is atrocious. The old restaurant was incredible, with surprisingly delicious vegetarian delicacies like Five Spice Roll and the “chicken” skewers. You could wash those down with Lotus tea made from the Lotus flowers in the pond! Not anymore :( Sadly all you have to choose from now is bland, certainly pre-packaged dumplings and spring rolls - you don’t even get any dipping sauce! Forget healthy fresh teas, the Sugar Demon has claimed another victim; and the hoards of tourists (mostly from China) who feed the demon the things it craves most - your money and your health. It’s with great sadness I have to wonder why the new menu contains meat. This is not the Buddhist Temple I’ve grown such fondness for. I don’t know what the lunch room meals are like, but next time I’ll be eating there.
A must visit if you happen to be passing by or in the area. Entering the courtyard made me feel as though I was in Taiwan or China... very grand and typical architecture of a Buddhist temple.
A very well maintained and beautiful temple worth visiting with a cafe/tea house as well although I didn't have a chance to eat there. Only manage to stop by for a short visit but will come back again for sight seeing if I have a chance. As with all places of worship, everyone is welcomed as long as we observe the guidelines and be respectful. The view from the top is spectacular too.
