As a human scale, full featured settlement, many of the residents' work, social, leisure and entertainment needs will be met on site - no more than a few minute's pleasant stroll from their front doors, and the extensive range of services and facilities provided by the existing village of Nimbin are not much further away.

Distance from existing infrastructure and services like schools, shops, medical, and banking is often a problem for rural dwellers. Rivendell, however is located just 750m from the centre of Nimbin, arguably the best serviced rural village in Australia. Where else in rural Australia can one buy a full range of goods, including Asian condiments and bulk health foods, from a store that stays open seven days a week until 7:30pm?

Got children? The school bus stops right at Rivendell's entrance, Nimbin Pre-school is just a 3-minute walk from your front door, and there are two sports ovals within 4 minutes walk.
