* flood recovery update *

Catastrophic floods have had a devastating impact on the Lismore community and businesses across our entire Local Government Area.

Lismore City Council’s Economic Development team are here to support businesses throughout the flood recovery process. Working with our local Chambers of Commerce, Regional NSW, Regional Development Australia,  Business NSW, Service NSW and many other stakeholders on recovery efforts, our team is a conduit to help business owners and operators find what they need in order to recover, rebuild or reposition.

We look forward to sharing updates about who’s back in business across Lismore, and promoting opportunities and activations that support business and community renewal.

Contact the team at or call 02 6625 0500 for business flood recovery support or referral advice.


Welcome to the heart of Lismore, a vibrant place enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Wander around Lismore’s wide shady streets or unwind in one of our many character-filled restaurants or cafes to absorb the relaxed atmosphere and historic charms of this lovely hinterland City.

Lismore, the region’s commercial heart since the late 1800s, is the largest shopping precinct in the Northern Rivers. You’ll find unique fashion, specialty stores, vintage and retro collections and much, much more. The Star Court Arcade, in particular, is one of Lismore’s best retail finds.

Just a couple of blocks from the City Centre, Lismore Shopping Square has over 75 specialty stores and four major retailers under one roof. The regular markets, NORPA, Lismore Regional Gallery, laneway street art and an eclectic mix of live music are representative of the City’s creative streetscape.
