You gotta do 'Dancebase', enormous cross section of community, diverse cultures, creative types, loads of notice boards.
Don't recall the name of road, but head down that windy road on the left before the bridge after turning right from the forest front door. Go left at the backpackers and walk across road. To your right, across the precinct bit, next to a small homey cafe is an entrance that looks like an underground tunnel. Walk in it and there's stairs/ecalator to the right. Voila!
