At the heart of a region renowned for its physical beauty, Lismore and Nimbin are on the doorstep of some of Australia’s most significant World Heritage listed reserves, spectacular National Parks and State Forests, offering easy access to walking trails, breathtaking lookouts and waterfalls that cascade into clear mountain pools.

From its traditional Whiyabul owners, through generations of white foresters, farmers and alternative lifestylers, Nimbin has attracted and spawned strong pioneering spirits – innovators, entrepreneurs and real characters – and their legacy

Maxx offers a rare and valuable experience of Nimbin. He is a great conversationalist, with a lovable dog and a flare for mixing up fabulous breakfast smoothies and delicious healthy cakes for morning tea - YUM! That said, if you come with expectations of creature comforts, bugger off. This is a happy hippie shack and the real deal! That is all I am going to say but I had a very happy time here and Maxx was a mine of information on what was going on in the town and where I should go to see it. As a writer, I have to contradict prior reviews that said there was good phone connectivity and WiFi. There was none of that, but you only had to drive 5 minutes into Nimbin to link in. I grew up on the far north coast and for me, this was a real nostalgic journey. Thank you Maxx and Stevie! I will remember my time with you very fondly.

Response from Maxx:
Thank you. It is always difficult seeing outside of the bubble. My deck is my workshop, as you noticed. I intermittently frame my paintings and prints there. The room has a built-in desk and chair. I know, I built it myself. Comments noted. Neither Steve or I are very pretentious.

I stayed with Maxx for two weeks to write on my thesis. The location is just beautiful, he has a huge garden, that gives the impression of being far of the world (bring mosquito repellent)...with great wifi, though. Maxx is a very respectful and calm person, his little dog Steve is probably the happiest thing in the area and almost immediately accepted me into the "family". We had many meals together (he is a great cook) and also went out a couple of times. The room was very cosy and decorated with his impressive art. Overall, I found Maxx´s place exactly what I expected and can definitely recommend it.

There is a reason to call the property 'Harmony Lodge', there really are fairies down Fairy Road. I just haven't seen any yet.

Welcoming, easy-going, home away from home feeling. Maxx was the highlight of the stay, what a extraordinary human being; (who also makes a range of deliciously healthy breakies)! A quiet, peaceful place with a heart-warming energy. Thank you Maxx!!!
