The Mullumbimby’s Madness DVD is a treasure. It is a very friendly eye-opening story of the early pioneer hippies, responding to the mysterious pulling power of this special land, the beautiful dairy farmers who were full of kindness and humour and understanding, and multi-level experiments explored in nature.

The capturing of the true spirit emitted from this land being felt and explored by the original hippies is so heart-warming, uplifting, and hilariously funny that I can call it nothing less than Rainbow Region Treasure, or Rural Australia Hippy Heritage. Thank you all who have been involved and intertwined in this touching DVD creation.

I have always loved Mullumbimby and the land surrounding and now I feel grateful to those brave early hippy settlers who had much less comfort available to support their wild explorations of living in nature and defying the assumed truths of our society.

Karen McLean, Mullumbimby
