Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat, and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Queensland, Australia. Established in 1974 Chenrezig Institute was one of the first Tibetan Buddhist centre in the Western World and remains one of the largest.

Today, the Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreatants, and guests.

Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in the formal garden, sip espresso in the café, have a vegetarian meal, drop in for a meditation class or teaching, or just sit and listen to life.

  • This is a beautiful place of spirituality, peace and serenity. The staff are helpful and respectful. The library has extensive reading mainly on the Buddhist lifestyle and Taoism, but have books of relative interest. There cafe has some amazing vegetarian food, but it defiantly pays to book a table.
  • Excellent holiday place/day trip/weekend away to visit especially at summer time. Temperature is much cooler in the mountain area.
