Overview

The award winning Lismore Visitor Information Centre is much more than a visitor centre - it's an experience! Our aim is to be a link between visitors and the rich source of environmental, cultural and economic resources in Lismore, Nimbin and surrounding villages. As Lismore is on the doorstep to Nightcap National Park, the centre features an indoor rainforest, designed to give visitors a taste of what they can experinece in the region. We have an Aboriginal Art Gallery, which provides local Northern Rivers Indigenous artists the opportunity to promote their artwork and offers visitors to Lismore an opportunity to learn about the area they are visiting through some of the local Aboriginal art. We have a large retail section specialising in unique, locally made arts, crafts and produce. There is an array of sumptuous gift baskets which you can buy pre-made or have one made-to-order. The Lismore Visitor Information Centre is Open 7 days a week from 9.30am to 4pm.

I visited here because my mobile phone broke and i needed directions to ballina to receive my new phone. The staff could not be more helpful- printing me directions from their computer and ensuring i knew where i was going.

This is a very nicely appointed site with very informative staff, there is also a wonderful gift shop. Parking is great and wonderful for families as there is a great park next door with lots of activities, even a small steam railway.

We frequented the Visitor information centre a few times and each time the staff couldn't be any more helpful. Bought some beautiful gifts for family and friends and some lovely items for myself.
