The Lismore Lantern Parade is an annual community arts festival held on or around the longest night of the year, being the Winter Solstice. The Lantern Parade attracts in excess of 25,000 people each year...
A stroll along the river walkway reveals an outdoor museum unlike any other in the area. Interpretive sites, public art installations, native landscaping, and parkland facilities all link to create a unique setting for you to explore the historic, cultural, artistic, and recreational fabric of life along the banks of the Wilson River.
There are three interpretive panels to visit, featured in a series of heritage story sites along the riverbank.
The sites are called 'Galamah - Living Together,' Mirring - River Crossings' and 'Burbang Mah - Gathering Place'.
The Galamah panels tell some of the story of pre/post European settlement, and are installed not far from where the first European settlement was built, near a former permanent campsite of the Widjabul people. The Mirring panels focus on the river and how it has been used by both cultures. The Burbang Mah panels highlight community celebrations through time.
