Welcome

Established in 1953, the Buddhist Society of Victoria (BSV) is the oldest Buddhist Teaching Centre in Australia.

As well as offering a vibrant teaching program at the Buddhaloka Centre in East Malvern, in September 2014, monastics from the Buddhaloka Centre and from Sanghamittarama, our vihara for bhikkhunis, moved to the newly established Newbury Buddhist Monastery. NBM a beautiful 150 acre property at Newbury, about 100 kms north-west of Melbourne.

On May 24th, 2015, Newbury Buddhist Monastery was officially opened by Ajahn Brahm, the spiritual adviser of the BSV.
