Lisarow is a suburb of the Central Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, located 8 kilometres (5 mi) north-northeast of Gosford's central business district via the Pacific Highway. It is part of the City of Gosford local government area, and lies along its northern boundary.

The area was largely rural until urban encroachment in more recent decades. It is now a mainly residential area, composed of medium-density housing, with small rural properties on the fringes. There is also a substantial amount of industrial activity around the railway line and station.

The main shopping area is Lisarow Plaza, including a Bi-Lo supermarket, a bank, hairdresser, optometrist, medical centre, dentist, physiotherapy clinic, cafés, take-away food, restaurant, bakery, clothing and variety shops. Educational facilities in the suburb include Lisarow High School, Lisarow Primary School and Narara Public School.
