The Land

The land for St Mary and St Anthony's Coptic Orthodox Monastery is located at 4 Merton Close, Kooralbyn Queensland, and is approximately 100km south of the city of Brisbane

The land, which measures approximately 440 acres, was donated by the late Dr. Zachariah Boules in 2005. His enormous generosity led to the purchase of this land whilst being very discreet. May the Lord Jesus Christ repose his soul in the Paradise of Joy

“My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth” 1 John 3:18

The development permit was approved by the local council in November 2008.

As per the below diagram, the land is outlined in red, while the area within the outlined box is the location for the proposed Monastery buildings.
