Overview

The award winning Lismore Visitor Information Centre is much more than a visitor centre - it's an experience! Our aim is to be a link between visitors and the rich source of environmental, cultural and economic resources in Lismore, Nimbin and surrounding villages. As Lismore is on the doorstep to Nightcap National Park, the centre features an indoor rainforest, designed to give visitors a taste of what they can experinece in the region. We have an Aboriginal Art Gallery, which provides local Northern Rivers Indigenous artists the opportunity to promote their artwork and offers visitors to Lismore an opportunity to learn about the area they are visiting through some of the local Aboriginal art. We have a large retail section specialising in unique, locally made arts, crafts and produce. There is an array of sumptuous gift baskets which you can buy pre-made or have one made-to-order. The Lismore Visitor Information Centre is Open 7 days a week from 9.30am to 4pm.

We frequented the Visitor information centre a few times and each time the staff couldn't be any more helpful. Bought some beautiful gifts for family and friends and some lovely items for myself.

We dropped in to purchase some local produce as gifts for Christmas. The person there was helpful and fairly knowledgeable. It is a shame there was not as much produce available as there has been in previous years.

Marvellous murals of the history and development of the region, including good indigenous information; very helpful staff; all the usual brochures of accommodation and activities; an excellent art gallery, souvenirs and produce for sale, mostly local; rainforest walk-through display is outstanding.
