"A great town where you have everything you need"

I have lived in Lismore for 5 years & I have noticed some positive changes since my arrival; more people moving in, the arts, cafes & decent food. The town offers pretty much what you need (major hospital, health professionals, supermarkets, farmer's markets etc) & there is a good sense of community. Not to mention it's not o far to major Northern River's attractions such as; Mount Warning, Byron, The Channon, Evans Heads & so forth.
Being a regional place it does have a slower pace (which can be good) but finding steady work (or sometimes anything) may be a little of a challenge. So be prepared & try to network. Other than that, the town has lots of potential!

"I don't care what anyone says I love Lismore!"

Friendly people, very down-to-earth, a cool rockabilly scene, also there are more gays and lesbians moving here opening up cool arty cafes and wine bars, the uni campus is beautiful and leafy and has a great gym and swimming pool facility.

"Seems to be quite a rough place..."

Stayed in Lismore for a few months. Most general services are available, however, it feels like a ghost town at night. Went to Mary Gilhoolies pub for a meal and found the staff to be exceptionally rude and ignorant. Food is not nearly as good as The Civic, The Tatts or The Gollan hotel. Staff are far friendlier at these other venues too.

Great for

  • Peaceful
  • Pretty just outside of Lismore
  • All general services available

Not great for

  • Too quiet
  • The only busy pub Mary Gs is full of rude ignorant staff.
  • People are quite rough

I have found All customer service in Lismore to be terrible in my short stay! They couldn't be any less enthusiastic if they tried. They seem like serving you is so much effort.

"Lismore - Sub tropical base for exploring."

Lismore is in far northern NSW and is the administration centre for the Northern Rivers Region. Situated only 1.5 hours from the QLD border Lismore is 30 from the coast and is a great base for those wishing to explore not only the beaches but the amazingly diverse rainforest and hinterland towns dotted around the area. Lismore is a large centre with major shopping centre and place to eat; There are club and entertainment venues all within easy reach of a range of accommodation choice that will suit all budgets. There are many national parks in the area including the heritage listed Mt Warning National Park. Enjoy walks through this and other natural wonders of the Lismore area.

Rentals in Lismore

"Lismore is a town of many purposes as it is the major regional centre of the Northern Rivers."

Lismore is a city that is on the older side, very tidy and generally sporting a strong vegetation as it is in the sub-tropical area. Servicing the surrounding rural area there are all sorts of industry and commerce here for that purpose, but it is only a short drive to the coastal towns of Ballina to the south east and Byron Bay to the north east.

The city is well supported by the Southern Cross University.

Much of the land settled here was done so by migrants from Italy and Germany with workers brought in from China. Today these nationalities are still very strong in the area and give it that cosmopolitan feel.


The surrounding forests have wonderful walks for nature lovers and some of the surrounding towns offer a variety of natural healing opportunities. It really is worth exploring the areas outside of town and see what the area has to offer.
