The far north of New South Wales is a wonderland of rolling hills with lush green fields, volcanic-soil rich farmlands, spectacular rainforest, national parks and volcanic mountains. The region is known as Rainbow Country, with its colourful and alternative feel to the various towns. Magical Mullumbimby is one such town, located at the foot of Mount Chincogan beside the Brunswick River.
This scenic little town is fondly referred to by the locals as ‘Mullum’ with it’s very welcoming sign at the entrance into the town indicating that it is ‘the biggest little town in Australia’. The name Mullumbimby means ‘small round hill’ and was given by local indigenous people alluding to the most prominent natural feature of the town, the striking Mount Chincogan, which towers 260m above the town.
Mullumbimby is 20 minutes north from Byron Bay or 10 minutes drive west of Brunswick Heads. Located just a 40 minute drive south of Noble Lakeside Park in Kingscliff, hence it’s a comfortable driving distance for a casual drive to explore this lovely country town.
