Since the 1973 Aquarius festival in Nimbin, The Rainbow Region has been home and host to a range of cultures, traditions and lifestyles. This diversity presents an ongoing challenge for natives and new settlers in understanding their place within its social and natural landscapes. Through the arts, housing, migration, indigenous experience, the gay community, drug culture, environmental activism, media and tourism, this collection provides an insight into belonging in this unique region.
