The viewing area is accessible at all times. The rocks are situated on private land and are not accessible.

The Nimbin Rocks are volcanic extrusions of rhyolite left over from the Woollumbin/Mount Warning Tweed  Shield Volcano that erupted around 20 million years ago .

As part of an eroded dyke of the shield volcano, the Rocks are situated just outside the present day caldera wall about 20 km from Wollumbin or Mount Warning, and three kilometres from Nimbin village.

They are an extremely significant cultural site to the local Wiyabal clan of the Bundjalung nation, who believe the rocks are home to the Nmbngee, or Clever Men. They were also initiation grounds for young boys and a part of the dreaming story .

The Nimbin Rocks viewing area is on Nimbin Road, 2kms from the village.

There is NO direct access to the Nimbin Rocks
