The Holy Transfiguration Monastery is a monastic community for men under the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia. Originally established as a skete under the omophorion of His Eminence Archbishop Paul of Sydney, it has since been made a monastery, all the while under the abbacy of Archimandrite Alexis.

The monastery is currently situated in Bombala, which is near the Snowy Mountains and 2 hours from Canberra, with over 100 acres of land. There are currently three priest-monks (Abbot Alexis, Hieromonk Makary and Hieromonk Sergius) in residence, along with a small number of novices.

During feastdays of the monastery, approximately 80-180 people (depending on the day of week) attend, with the liturgic celebrations done by the ROCOR Archbishop, with ROCOR and Serbian clergy. At the feastday in 2004, there were four monks or novices in residence. During the 2005 feast day celebrations, Monk Sergius was ordained to the diaconate and then to the priesthood, and there were six monks or novices in residence.
