Living in Lismore
Bordered by East Lismore, Girards Hill, South Lismore, North Lismore and Lismore Heights, the main area of this large city is a popular spot for many people as it is very close to a large variety of shops, schools and handy community facilities.
For your routine grocery shop (or to spoil yourself), try Lismore Shopping Square
, a fully enclosed, air-conditioned centre that draws locals from all over the Northern Rivers. For unique gifts, Lismore also has some great boutique stores and larger shops downtown in Woodlark Street and Magellan Street alongside an array of great cafes and restaurants.
For the kids, Lismore Public School, Lismore Heights Public School, St Carthage’s Primary School and Trinity Catholic College are the closest schools in the area, with Lismore’s many other schools only a short drive away. For sport on the weekends, head to nearby Oaks Oval and Lismore Park, or visit Heritage Park to have a barbeque with family while you watch the kids play in the unique playground or take a ride on the miniature railway.
