Real Soul Food

The Lismore commercial/shopping block of shops is legendary on the North Coast. Although it's glory days have passed due to most folk preferring the air-conditioned monotony of Lismore Square: Molesworth, Keen, Woodlark and Magellen Streets still continue to have many long-standing, eclectic and just plain interesting shops and cafes.
It is hot and very muggy humping around with kids in tow who have been brainwashed into sanitised shopping malls but who could resist the tropical fruits, gleaming chrome, linoleum and hanging baskets of the 'Tropicana'. A Woodlark St gem!

  9. I guess that is why country towns are interesting - they haven't been malled.
