Join a live-streamed tour of Nimbin, a quirky town near Byron Bay that makes you feel like you’ve returned to the summer of love in 1969. Some people liken it to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. It is home to colourful artwork and lovely locals. Walk with me as I take you on a virtual tour of this wonderful village. We will visit the Hemp Embassy and learn about what they are doing to legalize marijuana. We will also visit Nimbin Candles, where you will see how amazing candles are made by hand. Walking around the street, I will also see other shops with cool art.
