A Buddhist monastery of the Thai Forest Tradition

Located in Wilton, NSW, just 20 minutes from Wollongong and 1 hour from Sydney, Bodhisaddha provides a forest sanctuary in which monks and laypeople have the opportunity to encounter and practice the path of spiritual development taught by the Buddha.

The resident community of monks have an ideal environment to cultivate lives of meditation and service, while allowing visitors to receive teachings and to develop qualities of generosity, faith, mindfulness and wisdom in line with the Buddhist path.

Dedicated towards bringing peace into the lives of individuals and the surrounding community, Bodhisaddha welcomes all traditions that share this vision.
