Our advice? Take a cheeky long weekend, so you and your friends can tick off as many natural wonders in Lennox Head as you can.

Lennox Head Beach

Protected and cherished by the locals, Lennox Head Beach is a veritable playground for all water fun. The third site in Australia to be declared a National Surfing Reserve, the right-hand-point-break at Lennox Head is said to be one of Australia's most famous waves. Whether you're a surfer or not there is plenty to do. Our favourite thing is to walk up the beach and cool off in the waves. Simply heavenly. 

Boulder Beach

Named for its rocky shoreline, this popular coastal spot is known for its dark sand and dramatic clifftop. With a great walk around the beach as well, there is plenty to see, do and experience at Boulder Beach.

Pat Morton Lookout

Pat Morton Lookout has hang-gliders launching off its 65-metre clifftop. The views here are well worth the walk as you take in surfers carving up waves and the majestic whales during their annual migration. The perfect spot for a picnic, you will find yourself happily spending the afternoon up at the lookout.

Lake Ainsworth

An easy stroll from the village and beach, Lake Ainsworth is a stunning lake that is lined with tea trees in striking contrast to the white sandy Seven Mile Beach. It’s an idyllic spot for fishing enthusiasts, kayaking, canoeing, picnics and barbecues.

Seven Mile Beach

Lennox Head’s very own Seven Mile Beach is revered around the surfing circuit as having some of the best breaks in the region. Watch surfers from Pat Morton Lookout, along the boardwalk or beneath pandanus palms. And come August, the annual Lennox Longboard Classic is in full swing.
