Lismore Overview

Lismore is a sub-tropical city in New South Wales, Australia. It is the main population centre in the City of Lismore local government area. It is a major regional centre in the Northern Rivers region of the state.



The four largest industries by employment are retail, health care, education (Southern Cross University) and agriculture (Norco milk).



The city of Lismore resides in the Aboriginal Bundjalung Nation area[citation needed]. Evidence suggests aboriginal people arrived from the north of Australia around 8,000 years ago. However, the actually area of the Bundjalung people from Evans Head is currently under examination, as well as the actual origin of the name Bundjalung. It has been suggested that the Aboriginal people called the area Tuckurimbah meaning "glutton." European History of Lismore begins in c.1843. A pastoral run covering an area of 93 km was taken up by Captain Dumaresq at this time covering the Lismore area. The run was stocked with sheep from the New England area. Ward Stephens took up the run in the same year, but the sub-tropical climate was unsuited to sheep grazing, so the run was eventually abandoned. In January 1845, William and Jane Wilson took over the run. The Wilsons were Scottish and arrived in NSW in May 1833. On theory is that Jane Wilson was responsible for naming it after Lismore, Scotland, where the couple honeymooned. Another theory is that it was named after Lismore, Ireland because of a similarity in scenery. In 1855, a surveyor by the name of Frederick Peppercorne was instructed by Sir Thomas Mitchell to determine a site for a township in the area. The chosen site was William Wilson's homestead paddock, and the area was proclaimed the "Town of Lismore" in the NSW Government Gazette on 1 May 1856. The township was soon settled and a Post Office opened on 1 October 1859. Lismore was incorporated a municipality on 5 March 1879, and was proclaimed a city on 30 August 1946. From the mid 1950s until the early 1960s Lismore hosted an annual Floral Carnival in early September. The week-long programme of events culminated in a street parade of decorated floats, crowning of the Floral Queen and a fireworks display.
