"A beautiful part of the world"

A great place to live. Not so good for relationships for some reason... But overall, a great family place and a fantastic spot for young children. There is a bad 'teen' element, though I spose you get that anywhere. If you like to surf and fish then this is a top spot.

"Gorgeous village, with great community feel"

Lennox is an amazing place to live, beautiful coast line, great weather and a sweet little village atmosphere still. I think it has a population of around 6,000 (including the village and surrounds). It is 20 minutes south of the bustling Byron Bay, and 15 minutes north of the growing hub of Ballina (great airport). Lennox does get busy in the school holidays, but it remains quiet and easy to get around for the rest of the year.
There are plenty surfing sports around Lennox including the Surfing Reserve at The Point. Lake Ainsworth is a beautiful tea tree lake that makes the ideal spot to picnic and swim with the kids. There is a great Catholic Primary school in Skennars Head (5 minutes South of Lennox) and a highly rated Catholic High School there as well (Xavier). Lennox Public school (Primary) is also well regarded.
The community in Lennox is one of the best things about the area. Lovely, welcoming people that love to support their playgroup, surf club, sporting teams and community events.
There are some great restaurants in Lennox including Opes and Quattro, as well as sweet shops like Seapoppies and Florentina Flowers.
We've raised 4 kids here and I really couldn't think of a better place to do it. We love living with a view of the ocean every day.

"The is essentially a holiday town with little commercial activity."

Lennox Head is well known amongst the surf crowd. It is said that off the point at Lennox Head you will get one of best right-hand point breaks anywhere on Earth.

In fact most south east Queensland and northern NSW dedicated surfers would have been there at one stage or another. Most people who go there go to surf or just relax and have a break.

Many of the older houses in the area are holiday homes. The main shopping and commercial centre for Lennox Head is Ballina not far south on the Pacific Highway, or if someone is looking for a bit of nightlife they would probably drive up to Byron Bay, another popular surfing town but on a larger scale and with more to offer in the way of entertainment.

As is everywhere else, Lennox Head is slowly growing and now has a number of cafés and restaurants in the area.

Other activites one may do in Lennox Head are fishing, swimming and dolphin and whale watching.
