LEARN TO SURF
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, it runs 7.2 kms from the Surf Club south to Flat Rock. Endlessly photographed, filmed and fawned over, the right-hand point-break at Lennox is one of Australia's most famous waves. The Lennox Head point break is beautiful to look at but powerful - it's not the place for beginners. 7 mile beach outside the Lennox Surf Club is a great place to learn to surf.
Fishing from 7 mile beach is a Lennox experience not to be missed. Join Paul’s Fishing for beach fishing excursions and enjoy five hour fishing excursions on a beautiful
4WD beach and learn the art of beach fishing with your friendly Fisho! Small groups of no more than four people ensure you get the most out of your experience.
All bait and tackle, licenses and permits, sunscreen, refreshments and snacks provided. Make sure to remember to bring a hat!
