With different markets specialising in crafts, fresh produce, handmade items, recycled goods and more, it’s easy to spend hours browsing Lismore’s interesting and varied offerings. During the winter solstice, Lismore plays host to a viking village featuring food stalls, historical talks and entertainment, while the enchanting Lismore Lantern Parade marks the longest night of the year.
