Lismore benefits from a combination of elements which make it an ideal place to live, work and play. In close proximity to rainforests, national parks and beaches, it is the only inland regional city in the Northern Rivers.

The city also benefits from having the greatest concentration of health and education providers, sports facilities, business, professional services and creative industries in the region.

Lismore is surrounded by productive farmland and a network of attractive small villages including Nimbin - the site of the original Aquarius Festival and a major tourism destination in its own right.
