Downtown Nimbin

We decided to drop out of society many moons ago and ended up with a piece of land on a community at Nimbin. We had a lot of fun getting back to nature, bathing in a tub under the stars, skinny dippin' in the creeks etc. But we really are beach people and missed the beach lifestyle and shops :o) So we packed up and moved to the coast.
Nimbin was an adventure for us and is definately worth a visit. The scenery out there is beautiful and further afield, the border ranges are awesome.

Here's a pic of the wild country kids :o) Daisy, our Kelli, and rose.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Cultural hippy community. Cute shops. Interesting day trip from Gold Coast.
  • Cons:Be careful on small narrow roads.
  • In a nutshell:Nimbin - a 'must see' if interested in alternative lifestyle.

    The last time I was in Oz I took my wife to Nimbin to show her some alternate living. And then to off to the Channon market.

    Thanks for bringing back some great memories of a lovely area, Ann. We had friends who moved to Nimbin years back, old dairy farm - we often visited and stayed. Much younger then!!

    So Milo & Daisy had to be pretty selfish cows to skim off the cream!! A place called Nimbin only in Australia :-)

    Heh Ann loved this page. We too had cows to milk and can relate to chasing them in gumboots! Also we had a jersey and a calf just like the one in the pic! Her name was Baby and his was Toby...Cheers!
