The coastal village of Lennox Head, located conveniently between Ballina and Byron Bay, has grown in popularity for holiday-goers because of its sleepy seaside feel and luscious surrounds. The beach area around Lennox Point is well-known for its right-hand break, so surfers flock from far and wide to test the waters. In fact, Lennox Head is now considered a National Surfing Reserve.
Adventure seekers will find an outlet in the actual headland (Lennox Point), using it as a base for hang-gliding launches. Grounded adventurous souls will be happy to know that kite surfing and sailboarding are also on the table.
More relaxed outdoor activities at Lennox Head include wildlife spotting (the whale migrations each year are popular), beach walking, and hanging out at Lake Ainsworth – a lake that is permanently stained by surrounding tea-tree tannins and said to contain rejuvenating properties. Here, visitors swim, stand-up paddle board, kayak and enjoy the picnic and barbecue facilities onsite. Near the lake, on the 2nd and 5th Sundays of the month, it is possible to peruse the Lennox Head Markets at a leisurely weekend pace.
