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.

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.

I run a business in Lismore and a few people (the last one, mid-October, 2016) have sought my location by going to the Lismore Visitor Information Centre and have found that my well established street (since the 1960s) isn't on their maps. Instead they say my street is "unmarked", this is despite it is well and truly indicated on Google... More

Very riendly here, you can ask anything and they'll generally have an answer as well as lots of brochures and free maps. Good toilet facilities as well. Plenty of parking and conveniently located on the way into town if you're coming from the north. Also selling a wide range of local products.

We called in after reading the reviews. It was late on a Sunday afternoon. The fellow was courteous and knowledgable, even down to which coffee shop would be open. They have some informative local aboriginal history. We purchased some local produce and grabbed some maps for next time.
