Palate Conversation GroupAlliance Française Côte du Nord Inc was formed in May 1992. We are situated in Lismore, on the Far North Coast. Our most popular activity is our monthly Petit Déjeuner, hosted by various members. This is a morning of French conversation, fine food and the odd game of pétanque (boules).  

Our members are a mix of native speakers, high school teachers of French and travellers who have a love of France and its language and culture. If you would like to become a member please click here.
