About Lennox Head

Absolute Beachfront Apartments Lennox Head are located in the township of Lennox Head which has a relaxed village atmosphere with great restaurants, sidewalk cafés, local produce, and shops at your doorstep.

This spectacular coastal area is nestled between the resort towns of Ballina and Byron Bay. Known as ‘the village by the sea’, Lennox Head is a popular spot, with great swimming, surfing, kite surfing, fishing, snorkelling, sailing, and just about everything else you can do in a coastal town.

A short walk south from the apartments, Lennox Point – a National Surfing Reserve – offers one of the world’s most famous right-hand surf breaks. A short walk north, and you can swim, sail or canoe in the fresh ti-tree water of Lake Ainsworth, with its exotic markets on the second and fifth Sundays of the month. Or you can take a few steps from your apartment across the grass onto the beach and relax right there.

There are also panoramic views north and south from the Lennox Point look-out, and if you’re up for it, hang gliding and paragliding.

Byron Bay is only a 15-minute drive away if you want to explore the beaches, shops, cafés and other sights it has to offer. There are regular bus transfers to Byron Bay and a daily bus service to the Gold Coast where you can visit theme parks or spend a day shopping and exploring.

Lennox Head is in close proximity to many national parks.
