This beach is beautiful & the water is so clear. Its a popular surf beach so can get quite rough. The beach is long so plenty of space & we never felt crowded. Great to spot whales.

Plenty of people gather here to get a birds eye view of the surfers enjoying the waves - a lovely spot to pack a picnic

In a region blessed with many fine beaches, Lennox Head Beach is a standout. It's adjacent to the Lennox Natinoal Surfing Reserve, where surfing in Australia was pioneered -- and the breaks are still in acrtive use today.

Enjoyed the town and shops. We found an unexpected treasure. A beautiful children's shop called Baby Sesame that sells French and Polish toys and exquisite clothing. Whoever buys for the shop has fantastic taste in selecting the unusual and good quality.

Beautiful beach! Loved watching people fishing for their dinner. Watch the resident pelicans and sea eagles! Lovely walk right up to the point where if your lucky you might see whales!

We stayed in Byron Bay. Nice but very busy. If I was a surfer I would head here. Great waves, places to eat, smaller and quaint. Not as busy and many neat shops.
