Why choose Lismore?

Lismore is the heart of the Northern Rivers, on the east coast of Australia just inland from the famous Byron Bay. It is less than a 90-minute drive to the Gold Coast and its international airport. 

Beautiful rainforests, waterfalls and rivers surround Lismore along with farmland and smaller townships, making it one of the most enjoyable places in Australia to live.
