How to get there

Avoid the Fuss, Catch a Bus

Why not park in the CBD, jump on a bus and avoid the fuss in getting to the Lismore Showground.

Free shuttle buses will be running continuously throughout Sunday from 11.30am until 10.30pm.

Bus pick up points are:

  • Molesworth Street bus bay, park in Clyde Campbell Carpark.

  • Transit Centre, park in Kirklands Carpark

  • Lismore Railway Station, Union Street, South Lismore, park in Station’s Carpark

Most of the buses will be wheelchair accessible.

You may also choose to walk along a dedicated and lit pathway (we are closing some roads to make this an easy and safe option).

You can also be dropped off and picked up by a friend. The drop off/pick up location is the Saleyards Carpark.

Or if you want to catch a taxi, the drop off/pick up location is also the Saleyard carpark.
