national parks

Nimbin is on the doorstep of some of Australia’s most significant World Heritage listed reserves and spectacular National Parks offering easy access to walking trails, breathtaking lookouts and waterfalls that cascade into clear mountain pools. Surrounding the ancient Mt Warning (Wollumbin) volcano are the natural treasures of the Mt Warning, Border Ranges and Nightcap National Parks and the last eleven remnants of “The Big Scrub”, the vast rainforest that once blanketed much of the region.
