i went to nimbin in 2001 and it's very interesting if you like all things green. i used to very much but my tastes have shifted to a nice pint of beer or two, hehe.

dunno what it's like now obviously, but back then it was fairly chilled out and worth a days excursion from byron. poke your head into the museum cos it has some interesting bits n bobs.

as mentioned earlier, watch out for the cookies. in a similar vein to cookies in amsterdam they tend to knock you on your backside. purchasing small baggies over the counter in various cafes is the best bet. it's of a decent standard, or was back in 2001.

the mardi grass sounds funny as anything... bong throwing competitions, who can roll the most original and crazy doob etc... i'd be interested to hear what its like.

if he still operates try to find a fella called wayne who runs wayne's tours... a one man show with a minivan. he knows the area like the back of his hand, enjoys EVERYTHING nimbin has to offer and takes you there vis a waterfall and a beautiful national park. it's cheap and he's very fun! he even gives you a beer each way on the drive out to nimbin. sound fella!

you may be interested in a book called pot planet by brian preston. loads of cool stuff including a bit on nimbin and the festival!!!

have a good time there and don't eat too many cookies

ps- i'm not condoning th euse of illegal drugs. i havent ingested any drugs of an illegal nature for two years now and have no intention of ever doing so again.

travel is my drug of choice!

with the odd drop of alcohol thrown in for good measure

happy new year to everyone on this fantastic forum!

cheers

joey :)

if i were you i would stay outside nimbin -- it is an interesting place to visit for a couple of hours but depressing to stay there any longer.

you can easily get a car and go up there with other tourists if you stay in byron or another nearby town...

hey, I actually went down there the other day with some friends. Its defienitly a really neet experience, something everyone should see! it is touristy, but then again everywhere is. The people are all really nice (only cuz they wanna sell you thingsd!) but go, have a few drinks, and its just something you really dont see everyday.

ps. dont buy the cookies from the guy at the techno shop they suck"!
