Chung Tian Temple
Registered Name: International Buddhist Association of Queensland
Chung Tian Temple, which means “Middle Heaven”, was constructed in 1992 using traditional Chinese Buddhist architecture and is situated between Brisbane and Logan, Queensland. Surrounded by nature, the Temple provides a peaceful and culturally beautiful venue for the community to celebrate their multicultural diversity and multi-faith harmony through Humanistic Buddhism.

It is an active cultural, educational and tourist centre in Queensland and has been widely recognized as a successful model for its multicultural approach in Australia.
Chung Tian Temple organises several versatile activities for the community. Many of them aim at fostering talent and appreciation of art through education and promoting multi-culturalism through cultural activities.
