These are some photos I took last Sunday at the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple. I went there by train and bus with a group of friends for the day. It was built in 1992 and has expanded since then to encompass an institute, retreat and university courses involving Buddhism and health and well being,as well as cooking, calligraphy and other activities.
It is the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere and sits in the midst of beautiful, tranquil grounds with manicured trees and hedges and a beautiful lotus pond and pagoda.
I recently visited my son Jake and his partner Tash at Toowoomba. The week before was their Flower Festival and many of the public parks had beautiful flower displays. Here are a few photos I took there.
