Welcome to Australian Homestay Network Northern New South Wales
Tucked away in the far north eastern pocket of NSW, Australia is Lismore. An area renowned for its extraordinary natural beauty, amazing cultural diversity, relaxed lifestyles and quirky charms; a place where old school blends with new age and nature sets the pace.
Lismore is on the doorstep of several magnificent World Heritage National Parks offering easy access to walking trails, waterfalls that cascade into clear mountain pools and breathtaking lookouts. Ancient rainforests shroud the hills, ridges and valleys of the Nightcap and Border Ranges National Parks. There is even a rainforest remnant in Lismore’s City Centre.
At the southern rim of the ancient Wollumbin shield volcano, the rolling green hills are dotted with quaint villages, neat rows of macadamia and coffee and hidden valleys enshrouded with mystical rainforest.
Lismore, Nimbin and villages provide the perfect location to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect with nature.
