Ice House, Bridge and Waterfall
One of the most interesting and indeed unique features of the park was the location of an Ice House in situ in the grounds. Ice Houses while not unique in the country, Lismore is indeed fortunate to have three such structures in the immediate vicinity. The Ice House's themselves were used to store salmon caught in local river Blackwater prior to export. The fact that the ice itself was harvested from the flood plains of the river Blackwater alludes to much harsher winter's than we have now. Decking and lighting has been provided in the Ice House to allow the visitor to see for themselves the complexities of such a structure.
Bridge and Waterfall
When the site was being cleared initially, a very old water pump and tank were discovered in the grounds and were the source of the inspiration for this feature. This hand pump and tank were probably used to water the horses etc of visitors to the main house, which can be seen behind the trees at the back of the Ice House. A water feature using this initial tank and the construction of a new bridge make a very pleasant and indeed unique feature in the park.
