* 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.

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.
