Saint Petroc Monastery is a semi-eremitic monastic community for men in the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia located in Cascades, Tasmania. In 1997 it became a ROCOR (Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia) establishment under the omophorion of His Grace Archbishop Hilarion (Kapral) of Sydney. The current superior is Hieromonk Michael Mansbridge-Wood, and has been assigned the primary task of attracting Australians of Anglo-Celtic background to Orthodoxy using the Western Rite of the Orthodox Church.

The present accommodation is very small, with a small chapel, on the lower slopes of Mount Wellington. The Monastery has the mechanism for attached monastery missions and parishes, and has a married priest doing Orthodox Chaplaincy work with the university and seamen.
