The Ponds is a rural community located west of Lismore. The name was prompted by the numerous natural salt water ponds that existed here. John Sutherland settled here about 1791. He and Samuel Main received grants of land in 1815. John Paton also was an early settler, as were the Masons, Arbuckles, Murdocks, and several others.
