See it, share it, celebrate it!

Richmond River Historical Society is based in the city of Lismore, centre of the Richmond River region of northern New South Wales. The Society’s mission is to collect, preserve, display and disseminate historical material relevant to the continuing history of North-Eastern NSW. Whether you are interested in visiting our Museum, researching your family history, discovering an aspect of local history, or becoming a member or volunteer with the Society, we trust you will find what you are looking for on this website.


We acknowledge the Widjabal-Waibal people of the Bundjalung Nation as the traditional custodians and pay our respects to elders past and present.
