to Bodhi Tree from Lismore

From Lismore, take the road to Nimbin (Terania Street).

Turn RIGHT into Dunoon Road. There is a Petrol station and a Budget
Timbers Yard at an intersection – approximately 2 km from Lismore
centre, just after the old wooden railway bridge.

You will go up the steep hill past Lismore Showgrounds from this intersection. Then, see a 60 km speed sign at the top of the hill, then a sign that says TULLERA.

Bentley Road is a hard LEFT turn at the end of a straight section
of road. Go down Bentley Road 1 km (which is a gravel road
5.8 km from the petrol station). At the bottom of the hill is a Causeway, 15 metres from the entrance
to Bodhi Tree.

Right turn into the driveway to a Guest house set back from the road
– see a  Buddhist flag flying high from the front deck.
