North Lismore: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Wilsons River Experience Walk


A stroll along the river walkway reveals an outdoor museum unlike any other in the area. Interpretive sites, public art installations, native landscaping, and parkland facilities all link to create a unique setting for you to explore the historic, cultural, artistic, and recreational fabric of life along the banks of the Wilson River.

There are three interpretive panels to visit, featured in a series of heritage story sites along the riverbank.

The sites are called 'Galamah - Living Together,' Mirring - River Crossings' and 'Burbang Mah - Gathering Place'.

The Galamah panels tell some of the story of pre/post European settlement, and are installed not far from where the first European settlement was built, near a former permanent campsite of the Widjabul people. The Mirring panels focus on the river and how it has been used by both cultures. The Burbang Mah panels highlight community celebrations through time.

Colemans Bridge over Leycester Creek


Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Colemans Bridge over Leycester Creek.

Colemans Bridge is of State significance. It is a rare and representative example of a Dare truss road bridge completed in 1908 and survives in an excellent condition. The integrity of its fabric and the preservation of its original design style demonstrate its design excellence and all of the defining aspects of a Dare truss bridge. It also demonstrates less common features of Dare truss bridges, including central iron piers, relatively long truss spans and the fact that it is the only two lane Dare truss in NSW and the only to have footways. It is historically significant for its association with the expansion of the NSW road system and the renowned early twentieth century engineer, Harvey Dare.
