Opened in 1995, the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple in Berkeley is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Wollongong was chosen as the site for the Temple because of the ideal location of Mt Keira and Mt Kembla in relation to the site. The name ‘Wollongong’ also has significance in the way that it is a tribute to a Chinese man of great intelligence named Wollong. The translation of Nan Tien is Paradise of the Southern Hemisphere.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
