About the Quad

The Quad is a central public greenspace in the heart of Lismore CBD. Nestled between the Lismore Regional Gallery, Lismore Library and the Northern Rivers Conservatorium, the Quad is a public meeting place, a performance venue, a children’s play space, a creative hub and a space for community expression.

The Quad provides a safe space and gathering point for the community to enjoy free activities and performances, hold community events, take part in creative workshops and installations, or simply relax on the grass.

It is a well-loved destination for locals, visitors and tourists. Come and explore Lismore’s creative playground.
