From Dreamtime to farming time to Aquarius time, the Nimbin Soundtrail is a locative audio walk that tells the story of how the sleepy dairy village of Nimbin became one of Australia’s most famous alternative lifestyle destinations.

When Nimbin agreed to host the 1973 Aquarius Festival, the influx of university students and hippies changed the small dairy community forever.
A 10-day ‘festival without a program’ was proposed where people lived in ‘an experiential community’, built their dwellings and lived in tribes. Many locals were shocked by the festivalgoers’ nudity and free-living style but appreciated the new energy and the money that came to Nimbin.
After the festival, a few intrepid souls stayed on as New Settlers to continue the Aquarian dream and sow the seeds for today’s vibrant, innovative and sustainable community.
