Lismore is a town rich in geological and early settler history. Slip on the blundstone boots and an Akubra hat and get lost in history or scale the side on an extinct volcano.
The town has a well preserved colonial history with icons such as the town’s gothic revival chapel and 1840’s woodshed providing prominent landmarks. The recent opening of the Lismore Discovery Trail encourages travellers to explore the town a little deeper.
For those staying longer, the area surrounding Lismore has much to offer. Landmarks created by ancient volcanoes including volcanic peaks and lakes can all be visited nearby.
