Sellicks Beach is one of the many splendid beaches of Australia, which is located in the southern Adelaide area in a suburb, which is 47 km from the main Adelaide city. The suburb is bounded in the north by Button Road, in the south by Hundred of Willunga, in the east by Main South Road, and in the west by Aldinga Bay. The cadastral unit of Hundred of Willunga was called ‘Sellicks Beach Estate’ and was developed by George Herrick and Robert Herrick, who were two farmers in Aldinga. The Sellicks Beach was made official on October 28, 1993.

The statue is one of a kind, and it stands in the Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple, which is home to different Buddhist symbols such as lotus flowers, wheels, parasols, and incense burners. The Buddha statue is 18 meters tall and can be seen from a distance. On the right you can view the Sellicks Beach stretching to the Aldinga Bay. Guan Yin represents a white robed woman who brings food and wealth to her children; the statue also symbolizes compassion to animals and vegetarianism. The statue arrived from China and was packed in 23 shipping containers, and the total cost was estimated to be one million dollars. The statue is supposed to be a part of the retreat on Cactus Canyon Road; the retreat will also include a 35-meter pagoda, Chinese gardens, and a temple.

Guan Yin is quite a popular symbol in China, Korea, and Japan. The statue is not constructed and erected in Australia in Buddha Sellicks Beach.
