Nimbin - alternative lifestyle capital

Tucked away in the hills west of Byron Bay, Nimbin was once a sleepy little dairying village in a lush setting of farmland and forest. Today, Nimbin is known the world over as Australia’s most famous hippie destination and alternative lifestyle capital.

Nimbin shot to fame when it hosted the 1973 Aquarius Festival, attracting students, hippies and visionaries from all over Australia. Once the bands left and the dust settled, a few intrepid souls stayed on to live the dreams and ideology of Aquarius and sow the seeds for today’s vibrant, sustainable community.

This internationally famous village is intriguing and quirky with its unique mural streetscape of indigenous, rainforest and psychedelic facades and colourful local characters.

With an amazing array of cafés and shops the village also features fascinating places like Djanbung Permaculture Gardens, Rainbow Power Company and the extraordinary Nimbin Candle Factory.

Surrounded by three World Heritage Listed rainforests, including Protester Falls the site of Australia’s first successful anti-logging campaign. The 1979 campaign, known as the Terania Creek Battle, lasted 4 weeks and assured the survival of NSW’s rainforests today.

Nimbin is the perfect place to rest a while, to relax, rejuvenate and let Mother Nature work her charms. You can stay in luxurious cabins on the edge of the rainforest, in a B&B or backpackers, or perhaps in a teepee with mountain view.

"May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you, guide your way home". - excerpt from the original song by the Incredible String Band - adopted anthem of the 1973 Aquarius Festival.
