About Lennox Head

Lennox Head is situated just south of Australia’s most easterly point, the Byron Bay headland. It is about 2 hours south of Brisbane, and nestled between the regional towns of Ballina to the south, and Byron Bay to the north.

Lennox Head is a small coastal village of around 6,000 people. It is also a vibrant commercial and eating centre, very popular with tourists. But, despite its popularity, it still retains that special village feel and laid-back atmosphere.

Its picture postcard setting and perfect weather (all year) make it a favourite location for weddings and honeymoons. It also attracts sportspeople from all disciplines and, thanks to the popular Sport and Recreation Centre, is host to a range of youth and sports camps. It is also a popular surfing, kite surfing and fishing destination.

The main Street of Lennox Head is lined with a host of great boutique shops and some of the finest (award winning) restaurants around. Late night footpath dining is a popular pastime amongst residents and visitors, as are long lunches and leisurely coffee breaks.

It is the perfect spot to relax and unwind, to laze on the beach or on the balcony. The region offers a range of passtimes from outdoor recreational activities, to markets, festivals, pubs, bars, shops and galleries.

Accommodation ranges from 5 star resorts, to self contained apartments, motels and back packers.

The local Ballina/Byron Airport is only 15 minutes from Lennox Head and Jetstar flights operate daily from Sydney and three times a week direct from Melbourne. Lennox Head is easy to get to, but very hard to leave!
