About Newbury Buddhist Monastery

Located between Trentham and Blackwood – just 70 minutes from the heart of Melbourne city - the magnificent landscape and tranquil surroundings offer an inspiring backdrop for seclusion and meditation.
With its establishment, more aspirants, both local and international, can seek out full ordination. Those who wish to ordain, but are currently on waiting lists for accommodation at other monasteries, will have increased opportunities to develop their monastic vocation.
 

Upcoming Projects 

 
Project 1: Utilities for Monks' Living Huts

Thanks to your generosity, we have fully funded the containers for 2x monks' living huts. The next step would make them liveable by linking them up to utilities such as water, sewage, and electricity. The total estimate to finish this project is $34,500. This is pending council approval.

Utilities

Utilities for Monk's Living Huts: $50,000 / $84,500

 
 
Project 2: Electrical Work

Electrical works are required to power the water filter treatment and water wells. This will also provide electrical supplies to the main buildings within NBM; therefore servicing the monks' and nuns' living quarters as well as the common areas.

Project 3: Multi-Purpose Building For Monks

To assist with gender segregation within NBM, a multi-purpose building for monks is being constructed. This infrastructure is intended to be used as an meeting area, and bowl washing area. While gaining council approval, $25,000 has been funded and another $50,000 (estimated) is required to make this a reality.
