Riverside Park

Overview

Take a stroll along the riverbank into the City Centre and read about Lismore’s rich river history at the interpretive story sites along the way. This wonderful park connects residents and visitors to the Wilsons River, which runs through the heart of Lismore.

Enjoy the multi-tiered wharf and boat ramp, expansive parklands with free barbecues, shelters and lighting, a skate park plus the Wilsons River Experience Walk. This three kilometre riverside walk starts at the Lismore Visitor Information Centre and takes in a unique outdoor museum comprising a bush food garden, a huge butter churn sculpture relaying stories of Lismore’s dairying history at the press of a button and three story sites housing spectacular interpretive panels that paint a picture of Widjabul and European settlement along the banks of the river.

The Wilsons River Experience Walk is designed to link in with Lismore’s Café and Culture Trail, a self-guided walk that takes you on a journey through Lismore’s colourful history and culture and into the City Centre where you can experience the city’s funky café scene.
