Nimbin Rocks

Nimbin Road, Nimbin NSW 2480
The Nimbin Rocks are volcanic extrusions of Rhyolite left over from the Mount Warning Tweed Volcano that erupted around 20 million years ago. As part of an eroded dyke of the volcano, Nimbin Rocks are located just outside the present day caldera wall about 20 kilometres from Mount Warning and three kilometres from Nimbin Village. They are an extremely significant cultural site to the local Bundjalung tribe who believe the rocks were home to the Nmbngee, or Clever Men. They were also the initiation grounds for young boys and the dreaming story can be read at the Nimbin Museum. Viewing from the road only.

Nimbin Candle Factory

Cullen Street, The Old Butter Factory, Nimbin NSW 2480
Nimbin Candles derived from the need to supply a non-toxic, slow burning, smokeless candle, which could be burnt in confined spaces such as caravans, tents, and tepees, to the local community that had expanded in the early eighties, after the Aquarius Festival in 1973. Nimbin Candles are made using the age-old method of dipping each individual wick continuously to create a perfect taper. The design for their dipping deck was found and adapted from a book of medieval machinery and is similar to what was found in eleventh century monasteries when most candle making was done by monks. They use only the highest grade paraffin wax, the same wax used in food processing such as greaseproof paper and wrapping cheeses. The dyes they use are vegetable dyes, the same used in batik art. Open daily for visits and sales. Individual, families and bus groups welcome.
