Overview
More
Nimbin candles contain no animal products and the dyes we use are vegetable dyes, the same used in batik art. We have the only Water Driven Dipping Deck, manufacturing up to 1500 perfect tapers at a time. Come and see how the candles are made. We are open to the public 7 days a week. There’s plenty of parking and turning space for large vehicles and buses. Groups are welcome.

Such a cool little groovy place that is so beautiful to look at. It shows you how they make candles and have the most colourful, stunning candles for sale and they aren’t too expensive either! Love coming here.

It was really just a cluttered work environment with candles for sale. I'm not tall but I had to duck out of the way of the candles hanging from the ceiling.
