Nimbin in NSW Australia is a great place to visit if you are a stoner. Aussies and foreigners alike would find this pristine pot paradise an enjoyable experience if visited. Although not exactly legal, weed is everywhere in Nimbin. Just a short walk through the street and you will be approached by someone trying to sell weed or offer you cookies.
Whats in Nimbin?
Nimbin is not only known for bong shops, growers and a hemp embassy, but it contains a beautiful waterfall which can give you vertigo from looking over the edge. There’s also plenty of murals and paintings alike that make you feel as if you were in the 70’s. Its not a bad gig if you feel like an adventure. Kicking back and communicating with the locals will give you a brief summary of the place. The history can be quite entertaining.
The Annual Mardi Grass
Each year, the Mardi Grass festival is held in Nimbin. Mardi Grass began in 1993, and is held to protest, educate and celebrate all things cannabis related. In the past 40 years of Mardi Grass, the organisation has brought education to cannabis in medical, recreational, spiritual and industrial means.
The Hemp Olympics
The Hemp Olympics is an event that is part of the annual Mardi Grass Festival in Nimbin. Events include throwing bongs as far as you can, rolling joints to the best of your ability and an iron man type course where participants crawl through lantana while dragging a bag of fertiliser. Sounds pretty epic to me.
