Lake Ainsworth

Natural Attractions

Lake Ainsworth, a tea-tree-stained lake, is a popular spot with both Lennox Head locals and visitors. The lake, which covers an area of about 12 hectares, is located at the northern end of Pacific Parade.

It’s an ideal swimming spot for families with young children and is also suitable for stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing.

Recreation facilities include pathways, barbecues, picnic tables and parking.

The lake can be affected by blue-green algae. Check the Ballina Shire Council website for official advice.
