The word Nimbin, comes from the legend of the Nimbinjee people who are also the totem of the local Whiyabul tribe. The ancient sleeping warrior of the Nightcap Range still lies in watch over the village like the famous Nimbin Rocks which are now under the custodianship of the Bundjalung people.
The area was revitalised by the Aquarius Festival in 1973, which brought an influx of new settlers seeking to build a new alternative lifestyle away from the city. Two decades later, it is this alternative culture for which Nimbin is best known internationally.
