It was 1973. A bunch of university students from Sydney decided to turn a small struggling dairy town into a Woodstock style festival site. For 10 days young men and women flocked to Nimbin for the Aquarius Festival. Harry Freeman was one of them. Dr Freeman is now a senior psychiatrist with North Coast Health District and has been working in psychiatry for over 30 years.
