Lennox Head Spot Guide

About Lennox Head

Lennox Head is an east-facing, world class right hand point break. You can admire the wave from above on the large Lennox Point headland before you walk down to the slippery rock off. The 0.8 mile/1.2km long rock bottom point lights up in south-east swells, predominantly occurring during the winter months. It offers surfers quality long green walls with hollow sections depending on the sand formation on the rocky reef. The crowd is heavily geared towards the locals, so if you’re traveling to surf here make sure you mind your manners and bring your friendly face.
