The roads around Nimbin to Kyogle are fabulous for a Sunday drive or motorbike ride, and these stunning outcrops are a rewarding feature along this drive.

A nice drive by as you can't actually drive close or hike to the rocks. Such a pity as the rocks looks beautiful and a hiking path could really add to the area. Nimbin could do with a few added attractions to make a day...More
