Byron Bay, Australia

The "Hippie Capital" of Australia is a place called Byron Bay (look it up!) which is situated at the top of New South Wales, near Brisbane. Byron Bay and surrounding towns like Nimbin, Mullumbimby, and Lismore are absolute havens for the alternative, new-age folk.

Another Opinion: Byron Bay is not the Hippie Capital of Australia. It's actually Nimbin. Nimbin is 100% hippie. You hardly have to be there 1 minute and someone offers you some pot. The standard vehicle in Nimbin is the Combie Van. Some other hippie inhabited places in the area are Woodenbong and Humpybong (I think they speak for themselves).
