How do I get to Nimbin ?

First you must find your way to the continent of Australia, a very large Island bridging the Indian and Pacific Oceans South of the equator, and laying along the tropic of Capricorn. 

Nestled in the foothills of the Mt Warning Caldera ("Wollumbin") on the North East coast of the state of NSW, Nimbin is 780km's north of Sydney, Australia's capital. 

Not far from the Queensland border, and enjoying a subtropical climate, Nimbin is within 'day trip' distance from major business centres like Brisbane, the Gold coast and Lismore and 1 and a half hours drive from the famous surfing beaches around Byron bay.
