About the centre

Dhamma Padipa, located in Jelcobine, western Brookton Shire, is approximately 120km south west of Perth and 50km east of Brookton. The centre is on Strange Road, 76km from the junction of Brookton and Albany highways in Kelmscott, about 10km after the turn off to Beverly on the Brookton Highway.


Set on 32 hectares of undulating rural land typical of the area, the centre is adjacent to the Strange Road Nature Reserve. A dense corridor of gum trees, acacias and casuarinas surrounds the land. The compound slopes gently up to the eastern boundary where there are picturesque views over a large granite outcrop and the valley below. With no close neighbours the centre is very quiet, providing an ideal facility for meditation.


The meditation hall, kitchen/dining/accommodation building and ablutions block are built in rammed earth, providing excellent year-round insulation. Future plans include 20 single rooms in seven accommodation buildings; accommodation is currently in dormitories or tents. Camping sites are available under robust camping shelters or in surrounding treed areas.

Courses at the Vipassana Centre Western Australia

Courses are held on a regular basis throughout the year. Courses for old students (anyone who has completed a 10-day course) are also part of the course schedule.
