Explore

Lismore is surrounded by beautiful countryside waiting for you to explore. There are a number of short walks close to the town that will give you a taste of the great outdoors without venturing very far! Visit the historical great houses and gardens of the Blackwater Valley that are now open to the public. Feeling inspired? Call to Cosy Meadows Plant Nursery to pick up a few things to spruce up your own patch of earth! Activity holiday providers are on hand if you want to take exploration to another level: Blackwater Boating leads kayaking trips on the majestic river while Lismore Cycling Holidays encourage you to explore our highways and byways from the saddle of a bike.
