An interesting collection of buildings and inspiration. I particularly liked the Pilgrim Path which is a maze type walking area to mediate and pray. Lots of cute monuments. Cute area, and no fee to get into Lilydale after the summer season.

I don't think you can. We drove directly to Lilydale. Try looking at Greyhound.

The best reading I ever had was with Dr. Janice Dreshman and it was very accurate. Also Barbara Sandson and Kris Seastedt are excellent.
