DJ Lady Kay in Lismore for Tropical Fruits.

Lismore just wouldn’t be Lismore without a New Year’s celebration full of Tropical Fruits and to close out the year, the Lismore Quad and Lismore Regional Gallery are putting on the perfect afternoon soiree on December 30.

As a pre-Tropical Fruits get together everyone is invited to bring picnic rugs, tipples and nibbles and enjoy tunes from the fabulously swanky DJ Lady K in the Quad.

The Regional Gallery will also open on Monday so people can experience the incredible Partnershipping and Alchemists exhibitions and much more in air-conditioned comfort.

The Quad Placemaking Officer Jane Fuller says they really want to put on a cruisy chilled arvo to welcome the enormous Fruits family. ‘We have an outdoor licensed bar and the Slate Café will be serving yummy food.

‘Bring your picnic rug, your clan, your furbabies and laze on the lawn at The Quad and wander through the afternoon. The fabulous Lismore Regional Gallery in the heart of Lismore is the perfect place to be pre-Tropical Fruits.’

Music from DJ Lady K plays from 2pm to 6pm December 30, in the Quad.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Ah, Lismore, my home town: You’ve some a long way since we founded The Fruits in 1988, back in the times when we were made to feel most unwelcome even at home. Now “Lovemore” is Australia’s Queer Country Capital. Carry on being Fruity!
