Lennox Head Beach

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Lennox Head was declared a National Surfing Reserve in February 2007, the third site in Australia to be recognised for its significance to recreational surfing and the largest in Australia, it runs 7.2 kilometres from the Surf Club south to Flat Rock.

Endlessly photographed, filmed and fawned over, the right-hand point-break at Lennox Head is one of Australia’s most famous waves.

The Lennox Head point break is beautiful to look at but powerful, and to ride it you need to find space among dozens of red-hot local surfers, so it’s not the place for beginners. It breaks onto sand, but there are some round smooth rocks to be scrambled over.
