Toilet facilities for the visiting public are located at the ground floor area. The place can easily accommodate 500 visitors during a major festival. The veranda around the upper floor of the building provides ample space for a quiet sitting for meditation.

Visitors from all walks of life and religious beliefs are welcome to visit the temple. All the residents in the immediate neighbourhood consider the temple as a valuable addition to the forest setting of the area. They all appreciate the harmless, non-invasive and peaceful life of the monks and the devotees. It recommended that one should visit the temple just to experience the ambiance of the place.

Sensible attire with white or lighter colours is welcome. While at the temple, speak little and act in a disciplined manner.

Silence is the key thing for the cultivation of mind.

Alms giving for the monks have been arranged for the days of the month. Please telephone the resident monks to organize alms giving for a special occasion.

A future development plan has been approved by the Ipswich City Council. This includes better parking facilities, access roads, a meditation hall, Sthupa and a Bodhi Tree Precinct. Donations are welcome to help develop the temple.

Notes and Events:

Cittamani Hospice Service provides professional palliative care to people who are dying and their families. We offer compassionate care and honour clients’ individual choices.

We aim to provide the highest quality service from the time of diagnosis through to the bereavement period. Our belief is that this service is best provided in a healthy and supportive community where death, dying and bereavement are openly discussed and accepted.

The promotion of healthy dying requires terminally ill adults and children to have a choice in where and how they spend their remaining life. To support this choice a range of inpatient and community services are required to ensure continuity of care. The availability of knowledgeable networks of community members is vital to the success of this process.

To Cittamani Hospice Service, a hospice is a holistic approach to care rather than a place.

Our service includes:

  • holistic client-centred care
  • hospice-at-home program
  • multidisciplinary teamwork
  • community participation
  • hospital/general practitioner/community services collaboration
  • bereavement support program
  • community and professional education in issues of death and dying

Cittamani Hospice Service exists within a comprehensive and integrated health network and acts as a model for community-based hospice services both within Australia and overseas.

Coast and City Sangha

Address: Adelaide and Middleton   SA
Tradition: Theravada, secular
Phone: (08) 8555-2588
E-mail: or
Find on:
Notes and Events:

The groups that make up the Coast and City Sangha ( Goolwa Dharma Group  and Ashtree Sangha  follow a broad, secular approach.  

This approach values what it is that people actually experience, both in meditation and in daily life.  Within the framework of the teachings of the Buddha, this approach gives us a way to explore, and come to understand more about, these experiences and our inner worlds.

We encourage you to approach meditation with gentleness and curiosity, allowing your own unique experience to unfold naturally;  being open to, and cultivating awareness of, the rich variety of experiences that make up our inner lives, and coming to appreciate in a new way even those aspects we may usually view as unacceptable or mundane

Ashtree Sangha meets on the second Sunday of every month from February to December, upstairs at the Hatha Yoga Shala, 172 Hutt Street, Adelaide. Sangha meetings run from 3 to 5pm.  

 The Goolwa Dharma Group is based at the Middleton Pioneer Hall, Walker Place, Middleton or see map below. We meet fortnightly on a Monday 10.00 to 12.00 noon. 

For more information, contact Anna  ( Ashtree Sangha ) or Barb ( Goolwa Dharma Group )
