This is not the review...just follow the link to my tip written on my Lismore pages......
From Lismore to Nimbin and vice versa
Walking through the town you will see many structures, monuments, buildings etc recognising the traditional Aboriginal owners of these lands. The Aboriginals have a distinct culture which is on display at their theatre where regular performances are scheduled. Their painting is accepted world wide and there are several galleries in the town where you can view and hopefully purchase a painting for your home.
Every building in the main street has been decorated, some represent the alternative lifestyle of the "hippies", others represent the local Aboriginal Community's culture. It is worth taking time to absob the meaning of the scene, cast your mind back to the "Hippy 70's", or just admire the traditional values of the Aboriginal people.
This is not just a museum. It tells you about all the good stuff hennep can be used for and actually has half a VW bus in it. I reckon you'll have to be stoned or high to fully understand this museum and it's not very hard to get into that state in Nimbin. The prices of weed are much lower there than in the rest of Australia too.
I could only visit this place, because I went on a tour, see my transport tip. This bloke Paul lives here and he's gone back to nature. He's got a huge amount of land on which he planted a lot of fruit trees and a lot of different species of eucalypt. He takes you on a walk on his land and you'll get to eat all different kinds of fruit, from orange to ice cream beans and from melons to star fruit. At the end he'll take you to his cottage so you can see how he lives and have more fruit and nuts to eat. Paul's somewhat of a philosopher aswell and he can tell you a lot about sex, drugs, the universe and life.
The Nimbin museum is one of the most important places to see while in Nimbin.
It is basically a museum created by someone who was stoned, depicting the history of nimbin.
Each time i go i find something new to look at.
We did not stay in the hotel or go inside for a drink, but it looked so good I thought I should take a photo.
On the main street is the School of Arts established in 1904. Spend 5 minutes to browse through the local arts and crafts.
Nimbin does not shirk its social responsibility and provides a centre for people who wish to obtain advice.
One of the most visited shops on main street, due to the consistent quality of product this shop has brisk trade and " never loses a customer". Browsing is invited, shoplifters will be prosecuted.
This is on the World Heritage List. My tour went to it on the way back to Byron Bay. We visited the beautiful Minyon Falls and saw cookaburra's.
