Lennox Head

The town of Lennox Head is a popular destination for surfers with famous surf breaks at Boulders and Lennox Point. Visit the headland for breathtaking views or head to Pat Morton Lookout for whale and dolphin spotting. Try hang-gliding over the beautiful coastline. Beautiful bush tracks and pathways from the town up to lookout.

Explore Lake Ainsworth, hidden between the white sands of Lennox's Seven Mile Beach and the wildlife-rich coastal heathland. The fresh waters of the Lake are stained 'billy-tea' dark by the tea trees that fringe its banks. Swim in its deep red waters, skim its shimmering surface on a sailboard or go canoeing. The lake's shores are perfect for camping or enjoying the monthly Lennox Head markets.

Lennox Head: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.

An ideal whale watching spot (during whale season) and perfect for spotting dolphins, it is also the best vantage point for watching the surfers at its famous right hand break. You can also go hang-gliding or for a hike towards Boulders Beach, taking in the magnificent views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean and coast.
