Holy Trinity Orthodox Monastery is a monastic community for men under the Diocese of Australia and New Zealand, ROCOR. The monastery is located in Monkerai, New South Wales (north of Newcastle), and was established under the omophorion of His Grace Hilarion, Archbishop of Sydney, Australia and New Zealand, by Hieromonk John. Currently, the monastery has one hieromonk in residence.

On February 8, 2015, Hieromonk John was released into the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines by Metropolitan Hilarion, with Bishop George of Mayfield (who would be moving to Australia in Bright Week 2015) named as the new Superior.
