Storytowns transports you to a rural country town called Lismore for a unique tour that’s full of surprises. The town is filled with unique features such as a mountain, once a volcano, that’s shaped like an elephant. It is a rich volcanic area filled with lakes and plains, it’s a geologists dream.

Slow down and soak up the peaceful atmosphere while the locals teach you the ropes through pre-recorded podcasts. Meet colourful characters, legendary locals and down to earth farmers.

One of the town’s key attractions is the artwork installation on the water tower. Painted by renowned artist Jimmi Buscombe, the colourful design is vibrant and amazing to see in the flesh.

If you are up for an adventure, Lismore offers an interesting walking trail, hiking, fishing or for golfies there is a neat golf course with a lake in the middle.

Lismore even boasts a local craftsman who creates cricket bats from scratch using the wood from the willow trees he grows.

If you are ever driving through, don’t just keep on driving. Stop, relax and enjoy this surprising little town and fascinating area around it. You will be amazed to hear and see what Lismore has to offer.
