Accommodation and other information for visiting dogs to Nimbin.
Tucked away in the hills west of Byron Bay, Nimbin was once a sleepy dairy farming 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.
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.
