live + work + play

Lismore, a superior development, lifestyle & environmental location.

The Lismore LGA is within the ancestral territory of the Bundjalung Nation traversing from the northern banks of the Clarence River up to the Logan River in Queensland and west to the Great Dividing Range near Tenterfield and Stanthorpe.

The town was established at the confluence of what is now called Wilsons River, Leycester and Wilsons Creeks. The township of Lismore was proclaimed in 1856. Our diverse background has over time developed a community with strong foundations of acceptance, tolerance and pursuit of alternative and innovative practices.

We are home to Australia’s first ever community funded, Council operated floating solar farm and an award-winning waste facility that delivers recycling initiatives for the Northern Rivers.

The NSW Government population projections (2016) anticipate Lismore over the next 20 years to grow by over 5,500 residents, reaching 51,750 by 2036, a total increase of 12%, a similar growth rate to other comparable regional cities such as Albury, Orange and Nowra.
