As well as the many local beaches in the area and other Things to do such as tours and activities, there are some special places around Lennox Head that you should visit while you’re in the area.
Lake Ainsworth is a natural, Tea Tree lake & an iconic part of the Lennox Head lifestyle.
A great place for swimming and light water sports like stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and small sailing vessels. The lake is surrounded by parkland and is right next to the beach, The Surf Club and the campground. You’ll find picnic tables, public BBQs and the occasional bench seat, or bring a picnic blanket.
A safer option for swimming with children, though it does get quite deep from a few metres in. Water craft are not permitted at the south end (near campground / surf club) so that’s the best spot for swimming.
Dogs are not permitted in or around the lake.
There’s plenty of parking around.
Situated on the Lennox Point headland, Pat Moreton Lookout has one of the best views in Australia! IT has panoramic ocean vistas and on a clear day you can see Cape Byron Lighthouse.
A great place to spot dolphins and migrating whales (May-October) or watch the local surfers catch a wave on one of Australia’s famous right-hand breaks. Hang gliders often take off from Pat Moreton Lookout and they’re fascinating to watch – or give it a go yourself.
You can get to Pat Moreton Lookout by either walking along the Lennox Boardwalk (See below) or driving – there’s a carpark at the top but it can be popular.
Take a camera or binoculars. A good picnic spot too.
The Lennox Boardwalk is a great walking or cycling track, taking you all the way from the south end of Seven Mile Beach to the top of the headland at Pat Moreton Lookout.
The views are stunning all the way and there are the occasional beach seat underneath the Pandanus trees for you to relax and take it all in.
A really lovely way to get some exercise and fresh air!
