Welcome to Nimbin – Alternative lifestyle capital

Tucked away in the hills west of Byron Bay, Nimbin was once a sleepy little dairying, logging and banana-growing 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. The main themes characterising Nimbin are permaculture, intentional communities and sustainable lifestyle.
