Information and attractions Accommodation


Lismore is a regional city located inland between Ballina and Casino on the New South Wales north coast.

As the home of the primary campus of Southern Cross University, Lismore has developed into a shopping and entertainment hub and an important centre for outlying towns in the district.

Lismore's attractive main commercial centre stretches along Molesworth Street, Woodlark Street, Carrington Street, Keen Street and Magellan Street. The wide and meandering Wilson River lined with parkland is located just west of the commercial centre.

Lismore is a central base for exploring the smaller surrounding towns including scenic Kyogle which overlooks the lush Richmond Valley and the alternative lifestyle village of Nimbin.
