Vipassana meditation in the tradition of Sayagyi U Ba Khin as taught by S N Goenka

About the centre

Dhamma Aloka ("Light of Dhamma") was purchased in 1995 after years of searching for a site. The property is at Woori Yallock ("running stream" in the local Aboriginal language), one hour's drive east of Melbourne and only ten kilometres from the renowned Healesville wildlife sanctuary.


The centre is on a hill which adjoins a reserve on the banks of the Yarra river, with an outlook across lush river flats towards mountain ranges. The eighteen acre site has a three-bedroom house and new buildings include a hall for fifty people, accommodation blocks and bathrooms. It is mostly cleared with a fringe of ti-tree and eucalypt forest. The impression is one of seclusion and tranquillity.

Courses at the Vipassana Centre Victoria

Courses are held on a regular basis with at least one 10-day course per month. Courses for old students (anyone who has completed a 10-day course) are also part of the course schedule.
