Lennox Head is a seaside village situated on the stretch of coast between Byron Bay and Ballina. It has a population of approximately 7,741 people.
The village has grown considerably in recent years and remains popular with beach-goers, sea-changers, and holiday-makers.
The headland, also known as Lennox Point, is used by surfers, who come for the noted internationally famous right-hand break. Hang-gliders too visit Pat Morton Lookout to launch off its 65m cliff. The point is also used for watching dolphins surfing and the annual whale migration. The Pat Morton lookout (at the headland) has views of the village and of Seven Mile Beach extending up towards Broken Head.
The town is known for its pub, caravan park, as well as Lake Ainsworth, a freshwater lake that has distinctive tannin-stained waters from the surrounding tea trees.
