Lennox Head Beach


Lennox Head was declared a National Surfing Reserve in February 2007, the third site in Australia to be recognised for its significance to recreational surfing and the largest in Australia, it runs 7.2 kilometres from the Surf Club south to Flat Rock.

Endlessly photographed, filmed and fawned over, the right-hand point-break at Lennox Head is one of Australia's most famous waves.

The Lennox Head point break is beautiful to look at but powerful, and to ride it you need to find space among dozens of red-hot local surfers, so it's not the place for beginners. It breaks onto sand, but there are some round smooth rocks to be scrambled over.

Knockrow: Events

Tintenbar Up Front


Tintenbar Up Front, second Friday of every month, gives the opportunity for performers of all kinds - musicians, poets, comedians, dancers - to strut their stuff in a wonderful old hall.

Come see the lady from the shop, hear that guy from the mechanic's belt out a tune on guitar, and have a drop with your neighbour. Bring the kids for the Friday wind down.

If you have been before, you know there will be quality in all the performances. From delicate finger picked songs, to intricate arrangements of classical and contemporary recorder pieces, from well spun yarns, to humorous poems of the bush.

Bev Singh's provides a delicious Indian banquet but you must book to ensure you get a meal.
