Lismore Croquet Club


In the very heart of Lismore's CBD is an oasis of peace and calm: the Croquet Club.


The clubhouse is from the pages of a child's picture book. A marble plaque states it was opened by Lady Game (perfect name) in 1931, so the sport has been going on in Lismore for along time.
