Lismore Area, NSW

Regarded as the birthplace of eco-tourism, the Rainbow Region contains nearly a third of New South Wales’ forest reserves where you can experience the heritage-listed rainforests and national parks.

The World Heritage listed Nightcap National Park features rainforests saved by logging protests in the 1970s. From the secluded Terania Creek Picnic Area you can access the easy 700 metre trek upstream through the
lush, palm-laden track to the base of aptly named Protester Falls. At the southern end of Nightcap is spectacular Minyon Falls. There are also three extensive parklands offering a combined total of 32 hectares of restored rainforest and a wildlife sanctuary.

There are many scenic drives available through the region’s rich agricultural farmland producers of avocados,
stone fruit, coffee, macadamias, custard apples, coffee and other organic fruits and vegetables. Organic produce and foodstuffs can be found at the twice-weekly popular markets at the Showground. Explore a bit further inland and you’ll find the village of Nimbin, home to alternative culture famous world wide, where you’ll find some great arts and crafts to take home.

In the string of small towns surrounding Lismore, you’ll find plenty of gorgeous self-contained cottages, guesthouses and Bed and Breakfasts.
