FLRBG is a non-profit group of volunteers working in conjunction with the Lismore City Council to establish, develop and maintain the Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens. The Friends were officially formed in December 1998 but the dream of establishing a Botanic Garden in the Lismore area had been around since 1988. The Gardens opened officially in June 2013.

     

These Gardens are a wonderful place to visit with big colourful information signs, individual tree labels, paths, seats, picnic areas and of course a superb collection of local rainforest and other local native plants. It is great place to take visitors, and for kids to explore. The COOL CUBBY near first car park and SOLAR CLOCK in Sensory Garden are great favourites.  A very new feature is the little walkway and lookout in PALM GULLY at the western end of the Gardens, just beyond the Nursery.  The HOOP PINE FOREST, at the eastern end, is a lovely cool shady place to walk. The paths, unsealed but well graded, take you up to a stony LABYRINTH at the top and the newly installed BIG OLD CHURCH BELL, a little further along the ridge. Have a look and feel free to ring to bell to mark your visit to the top of the forest.

       

Early spring is a magnificent time in the Gardens, a mass of flowers and fruits!!  Many of the flowers are tiny and may seem insignificant but a closer look reveals that they are really beautiful!  Others, however, are positively flamboyant  and many have quite unfamiliar and interesting growth patterns. 

VOLUNTEER WORK DAYS AT THE GARDENS are held  every Wednesday morning from 8 am to 11 am and on the last Sunday of each month.

 OUR NEXT SUNDAY WORKDAY will be Sunday 27th September from 8 am.  Ring 0450596705 if you'd like to join in.
