Nymboida is a small village situated about 40 km south west from Grafton, along the road to Armidale. It enjoys stunning mountain bush, magnificent waterways and an abundance of wildlife, including many endangered species.
The village is sited near the Nymboida River and Goolang Creek and has a canoe centre & camp grounds, lodge/bunkhouse accommodation, school, community hall, church, police station, and sports ground, all surrounded by a small amount of local houses and a large amount of beautiful country side.
Just south of the Nymboida area around Hernani is farmstay for those wanting to retreat to the picture-perfect and peaceful rural surrounds.
Nymboida offers visitors the opportunity to get off the beaten track and relax in the warm and friendly atmosphere and peaceful surroundings, appreciating the small local art & craft studios, or have an action packed holiday, canoeing, rafting, abseiling, kayaking, 4WDing and mountain-biking.
Thinking of having a function somewhere different? Nymboida overs the perfect venues, nestled amongst the trees and rolling hills. There is a function centre to hold conferences, weddings, parties and other special events.

home of the platypus
The Nymboida River shelters one of the North Coast's largest platypus communities. These delightful creatures can be viewed in the early morning and late afternoon in these clean waters.
Probably the best spots to catch a glimpse of these elusive marsupials is by hiring a canoe from the canoe centre to explore the river for yourself. For more information, check our Platypus page.
