Nimbin is really easy to get to from Byron Bay, there are tour buses from lots of hostels etc. But it is more than an area to smoke pot (Which is illegal there, but easy to get). The hinter land around there is beautiful, if you get friendly with locals they'll show you gorgeous little waterfalls in the forest to cool down.

My boyfriend and I have both been to Nimbin over the past couple of years. Nimbin is certainly a unique place. It is set amongst beautiful, lush, green surroundings. However, the township itself is relatively small, populated by a diverse range of characters. You've got your rednecks, hippies, bogans, tourists and druggies. Not only marijuana is freely available on the streets but so are the more heavier drugs. My personal experience was somewhat daunting. From the moment we hit the street we were hassled to buy drugs, take drugs or accept marriage proposals. We ate in a cafe with cockroaches, observed elderly women shakin' hoola hoops and bought lovely jewellery from the street stalls. The dope is good and cheap, the place is worth a visit but probably wouldn't recommend staying there too long.
