Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery and Retreat Centre was founded by Venerable Pannyavaro an Australian monk of over 25 years service in 2005. Ordained in the Thai tradition, he spent many years studying and practicing in Burma and Sri Lanka.
Pannyavaro plans to develop a meditation community to serve both lay and monastic practitioners on ninety-five acres of beautiful land at Tullera five minutes from Lismore in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia. This land has been purchased as a sanctuary and hermitage – known as Bodhi Tree Forest Monastery and Retreat centre.
