Here is how to get to us.

we live 5klm in the nightcap forest so i will try and make an accurate text map.
If you are coming from UKI follow the main road Kyogle road west for another 15 klms once you pass through the village of Kunghur you travel for 1.5klms you will see that the road opens up to 4 lanes for a short distance turn right at this section in the road you will see a yellow Interaction sign.

Once through the gate turn at the next right which will be a Small steel bridge follow the signs to the hill of abundance. Or follow this dirt road for 3klms and turn right at the yellow flag that says mebbin plantation then follow that 2klms to the Hill of abundance.

If your coming from NIMBIN
Follow the blue knob road until it connects with kyogle road then turn right into kyogle road. Follow that road for 9 klms until the road widens in both directions turn left into the drive way near the interaction sign then follow the above directions in green.

If it is raining you will need a 4×4 to access the hill of abundance. If unsure wait at the gate and some one with a 4×4 will give you a lift.

Please tell your friends about us everyone who takes the time to come and visit us is welcome.
