Choose holiday accommodation in Lennox Head, Australia

The friendly beach resort of Lennox Head, on the Far North Coast of New South Wales in Australia, is a delightful holiday destination that is far from the madding crowds, yet close to the region’s major attractions.

Its excellent beaches are Lennox Head’s great selling point and along with the wonderful weather makes the town and its holiday rentals an excellent destination for families and all who love sun, sand, sea and surf.

Close to the larger town of Ballina, Lennox Head is also handy for beautiful Byron Bay, the undoubted capital of Australian alternative lifestyles. The Far North Coast is a stunningly beautiful part of the world, with miles of unspoilt coastline, rainforests and national parks.

Take it to the beach

First settled by Europeans in the 1830s, Lennox Head is part of an area whose history actually stretches back thousands of years. For the indigenous Bundjalung people, the area has huge cultural significance as part of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, the mythical time in which they believed the land and people were created. Dairy farming and timber felling were the mainstay of the town’s economy until the early 20th century when the first holiday accommodation was established.

Although not technically a suburb of the much larger neighbouring town of Ballina, the distance between the two conurbations has narrowed significantly over the years and Ballina provides the main shopping and services for Lennox Head.

Situated at the southern end of Seven Mile Beach, Lennox Head’s beaches are particularly appealing – surfers are spoiled for choice because of the unusual right-hand surfing break. Seven Mile Beach has a seasonally patrolled area close to its Surf Life Saving Club; other good swimming, surf and watersports beaches include Lennox Point, home to a long warm water surf break, Boulders and Flat Rock.

Lake Ainsworth is the area where much of Lennox Head’s holiday rentals can be found – this beautiful freshwater lake is just 50m from the beach and has excellent facilities for families.

Lennox Head’s appeal lies in its ability to offer lots to do while simultaneously providing the facilities in which visitors can do precisely nothing – and enjoy their inactivity totally! The town has plenty of eateries, from cafes to classy restaurants, and fresh seafood is a local speciality.

Go along for the ride

Beach buggy cruising is a rather different way to enjoy a tour of Byron Bay. The reinforced chassis and solid roll cage of the buggy make it a safe but very fun way of scooting across the sand.

For a slightly less energetic way of seeing more of the coastline, book a fishing charter to cast your line on the reef or fish from the shore at Seven Mile Beach – your catch could include mackerel, snapper or bream.

Pat Morton Lookout on the Lennox Headland provides some magnificent views of the shoreline with whale and dolphin watching particularly popular from this spot. Whales can be seen making their way up the coast in June and July as they head to warmer waters before heading south again in September and October. Look for the dolphins doing their own “fishing” just off shore every day. Look for holiday villas and apartments with sea views to enjoy your own private viewing.

Ray of light

The climate of New South Wales’s Far North Coast is a sub-tropical one. Lennox Head’s climate is, however, tempered by the cool breeze from the ocean. Expect average daily temperatures of around 32?C in summer and around 26?C in winter. To handle those sea breezes during the colder months, make sure you carry a jacket but sun block or high factor sunscreen is essential during the summer. Having holiday accommodation close by is ideal if you forget to take the sun block out with you.

Getting there

UK travellers heading to Australia’s eastern seaboard will fly from London’s Heathrow Airport to either Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport or Brisbane International Airport. From both airports, connecting flights are available to Ballina from where local bus and coach connections will shuttle you to your holiday rental. You can also get a train to Byron Bay from Sydney or Brisbane, which is just 15 minutes from Lennox Head.
