Situated on the Richmond River with Nightcap National Park just 67km to the north, Lismore is surrounded by natural beauty. The town itself is also rich with heritage buildings, and its significant creative community benefits from Lismore’s numerous theatres, art galleries and performing arts spaces.

There’s plenty to see and do in Lismore, with markets featuring among the town’s most frequent and popular events. 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.
