Information

A quiet town now part of NSW hinterland growth between Lismore and Ballina, Alstonville lies between the larger centres of Lismore and Ballina. Surrounded by rolling hills where avocados and macadamia nuts are grown, it is primarily a service centre for the local population of around 5,000.

An early settler, John Perry, named his house after his wife Annie Alston. The name became a byword for the area and it was a simple step to name the town Alstonville.

Alstonville was established by the cedar cutters over a hundred years ago and you can still see a remnant of the 'Big Scrub' at Victoria Park where you follow a boardwalk through this sub tropical rainforest.
