Lismore has the largest retail shopping precinct in the Northern Rivers. Its wide streets are lined with beautiful heritage buildings and the city centre has a relaxed country atmosphere.

There's everything from designer clothes and homewares to organic produce and rare books. Local stores feature national brands and unique boutiques are full of one-of-a-kind finds.

Arcades full of quirky shops offer all sorts of treasures and trinkets while specialty stores and shopping centres have everything you need for your home, lifestyle, children, garden or wedding.

There are antiques and old wares, second-hand books and sheet music, retro and curio. And, at the end of a hard day's shopping, take a break in one of our many funky eateries or shaded sidewalk cafes to relax and rejuvenate.

The region's 'alternative lifestyle' culture supports a rich wellness sector, with an abundance of health-focussed stores, markets and practitioners dedicated to your physical and mental wellbeing.
