Nature in Nimbin
Set in a beautiful green valley pierced with limestone spires, Nimbin is on the doorstep of World Heritage-listed national parks, breathtaking lookout points, cascading waterfalls and the magnificent Mt Warning. Enjoy the natural wonders surrounding the town by exploring the region's walking trails.
Nimbin is Australia's home-grown haven for alternative subculture. The communes that sprouted in the hills around Nimbin in the 1970s and 1980s were the nucleus of an experimental society that seemed to flout most of the rules of contemporary Australia. Today, Nimbin wears its hair, its tattoos and body piercings and its slightly outrageous manners with pride, but it's not for the faint-hearted.
A tapestry of farms and a landscape of astonishing beauty surround the town. This includes a number of World Heritage-listed national parks such as Nightcap National Park, Border Ranges National Park and Wollumbin National Park. Be sure to walk to Protesters Falls on Terania Creek, beneath a canopy of Bangalow palms, to the waterfall where a 30 metre veil of water sprays into a green pool.
