This is a type of Buddhist garden / shrine with loads of crystals and spectacular gardens. The main crystal must be worth a fortune. There are crystals on sale from about $5 - $50,000+.

We absolutely loved the serene gardens and crystals at Crystal Castle. Does anyone know if there is anything similar in Victoria Australia that I could visit with my family on a more regular basis? TIA

Hi we drove up from Mullumbimby and I freaked out going up the hill, not far out of the town. It was very steep and we had to pass a big truck. Does it improve after this, or will it still be a narrow, winding road all the way. Thankyou
