General Information

Lennox Head Boardwalk is a fantastic scenic coastal walk culminating in stunning views from Lennox Point and the Pat Morton Lookout.

Take morning tea, a picnic or promise yourself and your children a tasty treat or refreshing drink from one of the many delicious cafes in the town when you’ve made your way back down again.

You can begin either at the end of Dress Circle Road where the ‘official’ track begins or further up the road towards Lennox town centre at the end of Rutherford Street where there is a small carpark, beach access, picnic table and a set of children’s swings. Alternatively, you can join the track from a number of beach access points along the way.

Simply follow the stroller-friendly beachfront boardwalk which changes into a pathway at the end of Dress Circle Road all the way up to Lennox Point and the Pat Morton Lookout.

Located on the top of Lennox Point – affectionately known as ‘The Point – the Pat Morton Lookout offers spectacular views of the coast as far north as Byron Bay. It is a prime whale-watching spot (during whale migration season from June to November) and it also a great place to watch the locals and the dolphins carve it up at its world-renowned right hand point break! This is also a popular hand gliding spot and when the weather conditions are spot on you’ll spot quite a number of them soaring through the skies.

There is a further walkway over to Boulders Beach but  it is worth noting that there are some steps to negotiate so it makes it more difficult terrain for strollers and prams.

It’s also handy to know that there is a single unisex and wheelchair-accessible toilet located near the carpark exit to the Pat Morton Lookout which is handy if you or the children are caught short at the top!
