Lennox Head is a seaside village on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia, situated on the stretch of coast between Byron Bay and Ballina. The village remains popular with beach-goers, sea-changers, and holiday-makers. The relaxed village atmosphere has great restaurants, sidewalk cafes and shops. Pat Morton lookout offers spectacular views of Lennox Head and Seven Mile Beach extending up towards Broken Head and on to Byron.
This part of the world is famous for spotting whales as they make their annual migration up the coast to seek out warmer waters. Best times are June/July and then September/October as they return south.
Lennox Head is also well known for its windsurfing and kite surfing. Located on the northern end of the village is Lake Ainsworth, a freshwater lake that has distinctive tannin-stained waters from the surrounding tea trees and is in stunning contrast with the white sands of Seven Mile Beach.
