The South Lismore Railway Station has seen a lot over the years. It was built in 1889 and served as a vital transportation hub for the region for over a century. However, the station has been closed for a number of years, due to flooding and damage from the 2017 and 2022 floods.
One of the most memorable events for me that took place at the station was the arrival of the hippies in 1973 for the Aquarius Festival. The festival was a major cultural event, and it attracted thousands of people from all over the world.
The station is also where I left for first overseas holiday at the age of 17.
Here are a couple of videos of how it’s looking these days.
