Point of Interest
“Located on the top of Lennox Point, Pat Morton Lookout has extensive views out to the Pacific Ocean and north stretching up Seven Mile Beach. An ideal whale watching spot (during whale season) and perfect for spotting dolphins, it is also the best vantage point for watching the surfers at its famous right hand break. You can also go hang-gliding or for a hike towards Boulders Beach, taking in the magnificent views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean and coast. Lennox Head was declared a National Surfing Reserve in February 2007, the third site in Australia to be recognised for its significance to recreational surfing and the largest in Australia”
