Lismore is an area where you can live and work in some of Australia’s most sought-after destinations, where work/life balance is not a buzzword, it’s a reality! The subtropical climate means you will enjoy warm and mild weather all year ‘round. Expect hot, languid summers, mild winter days with cool evenings, and lots of sunshine. Rainfall in the region is high, and green, lush vegetation abounds. Educational services are equally well provided for with a large number of quality private and public schools, pre-schools and TAFE College. Lismore also proudly hosts Southern Cross University, one of Australia’s leading regional universities, offering a world class education. It is also home to the Northern Rivers Conservatorium. Within an hour’s drive you can be at the closest International Airport and the nearest capital city is Brisbane which is little more than a two hour drive away. Or you can jump on a plane at Lismore Regional Airport, only five minutes from the CBD, and be in Sydney in just over an hour.
