A new treasure map produced by Lismore and Nimbin Tourism is set to further unlock the hidden treasures of Lismore, Nimbin and the surrounding villages to the 500,000 visitors to the region each year.

Nimbin Visitor Information Centre Coordinator, Andrew Walker, said the map was developed to showcase the variety of attractions around Lismore and Nimbin, with a particular focus on guiding the 40,000 visitors who are known to visit Nimbin on day trips from Byron Bay each year.

He says the map will take visitors to Nimbin via hinterland villages and Lismore,  returning to the coast via Nightcap National  Park.

He told a meeting of the Nimbin Chamber of Commerce that the Treasure Map will combine a practical regional map with touring directions,  interpretive information and quirky asides.

Nimbin’s profile will include a brief history  and information about Nimbin Rocks and  the 1973 Aquarius Festival. The Terania  Creek protest will be highlighted along with  Protester Falls. Visitors will be inspired to tread lightly, he told the group.

‘Visitors are shown how they can plan a trip that will allow them to explore the unique culture, environmental beauty and history of this region as they visit the many galleries, cafes and unique retail outlets containing handcrafted or interesting items not available elsewhere.

The Lismore and Nimbin Tourism Treasure Map s now available for sale for $2.95 from selected outlets, including the Lismore, Nimbin and Byron Visitor Centres.
