Depending upon whom you speak to in the Byron Bay area, there is a split of opinion as to whether to go to Nimbin or not. What to do? Well of course, we decide to see for ourselves and despite the drizzling rain, take the Suzi for a loop around Mount Jerusalem National Park with a some detours – south of Dunoon to Nimbin and then north (missing the turnoff and going via Murwillumbah) to return to Mullumbimby.
Our first detour – Minyon Falls Lookout within Whian Whian State Conservation Area. Minyon Falls was not at its best with the lack of rainfall, but still amazing vistas from the lookout. The tall trees dwarfed our little Suzi and as we drove further into the Area, we were once again following a winding, narrow road through mountains and rain forest areas of lush green.
Further along the road, more magnificant scenery and macadamia orchards.
