Welcome to Nimbin on the Web

May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you,
and the pure light within you, guide your way on.

The Village of Nimbin is situated in a valley in the sub tropical North East corner of NSW. Local attractions are the colourful painted shops, murals, sculptures, arts and market. Surrounding region consists of National Parks of local native fauna and flora from the mountains to the most easterly point of the Australian coast.

The original tribal people were the Widgibal clan of the Bundjalung. Nimbin was an important site for male initiation. The land was considered sacred. During the 1800’s pioneer European settlers cleared land for the timber industry and began farming bananas and dairy mainly. The land provided families with homes, food, employment and community. The 2nd wave of settlers came in the 1970’s with ideas of, alternative home building, organic growing and farming, solar, wind and water power development and the creation of land co-operatives with a blend of ‘new age’ spiritual and tribal.

Today Nimbin is a vibrant community reflecting the past and
celebrating the future as a sustainable culture.
