SURF SPOTS

Information sourced from the surfingatlas.com

LENNOX POINT Drive towards Lennox Head lookout, park atop, follow the trail and cruise down (just watch out for spiky vegetation). Getting in and out here can be a challenge, as polished, small slippery rocks lead the way. But when the groundswell from S-SE comes in, winds are absent or W-NW the ride is great. Chill in the lineup, enjoy the serenity and amazing backdrop. A world class right point that can barrel and have you surfing FAST for over 300m. Best conditions are a cyclone swell or decent ground swell but Lennox can break on any swell over 2ft. Best on SW to SE winds. For experienced surfers only.

LENNOX REEF Lennox Reef is a flat, submerged boulders reef off the southern corner of Lennox beach, just in from the famous Lennox Point. Due to the water depth, it is best surfed at higher tide as the rocks do tend to come to the surface on low and make paddling and duck diving dangerous. When the offshore wind is blowing the peaks out here can be really fun and the crowd factor is usually low. The paddle is quite long from the beach (maybe 150 - 200m) but is flat water until you get to the reef it self about 100m off shore. Best in a small to medium swell.

BOULDERS BEACH Just south of Lennox Point, Boulders (named after the basalt rocks that have eroded to form the beach) is suited to the experienced surfer. Boulder Beach has been referred to as the backside of Lennox Point. Boulder’s is a step up from Flat Rock (see below)- it can hold reasonably big swell and, with its rocky shore and tricky entry points, is not a place for the novice surfer.

FLAT ROCK Flat Rock is a long flat rock platform in front of a popular camping ground. Easy to find as it is well sign posted and just off the coast road south of Ballina. The wave can get really good but is usually a slowish right hander that tends to section. Waves are fun and well suited to intermediates and beginners. The rock platform provides good protection from SE wind so a sneaky afternoon session can be had when everywhere else is blown out.

NORTH WALL Easy to find, follow the East Ballina signs and then go towards the river. North Wall is the north side of the man made break wall where the river meets the sea. There is a road to the break and a car park. When every where is 2ft North Wall is 4ft! A swell magnet of a place. On its day it is a serious take off and fast down the line wave that often meets with a closeout near the beach. Best left to experienced surfers once it is over 3ft. Great spot to check when the wind goes to the SE too, as the break wall offers protection in the onshore wind.

BALLINA MARITIME MUSEUM Located behind Ballina Council Library and Swimming Pool in River Street. An amazing museum featuring seafaring adventure, nostalgia, pioneering and wartime history. The premiere display features the only remaining raft from the epic Las Balsas expedition which famously crossed the entire Pacific Ocean from South America and landed at Ballina in 1973. The Las Balsas raft on display is the only one to survive the incredible 14000 Km journey from South America to Australia sailing from Ecuador in 1973 and drifting for 179 days across the Pacific Ocean via the Galapagos Islands, The Cook Islands, Tonga and New Caledonia. The expedition first saw land close to Mooloolaba in Queensland. The bad weather and the prevailing currents carried them down the coast to Ballina, NSW. A documentary chronicling the expedition was subsequently produced, titled “The Pacific Challenge� and can be viewed and purchased at the Ballina Maritime Museum.

SCENIC WALKS Lennox Head to Lennox Point (Pat Morten Lookout) Take a right onto Ballina Street from the Resort, then take your first right onto Rutherford St. Walk until you hit the beach and follow the path all the way to the top. It is fairly level walking all the way until the last section (15 mins). From Lennox Point you can continue to the top up a large set of stairs and take in the panoramic views. From here you can continue along the coast all the way to Ballina (approx 2hours one way). Please note, that sections are on rocks and the path is not clearly marked. Minyon Falls - Nightcap National park Situated within the beautiful Nightcap National Park, Minyon Falls plunges a depth of around 97-104m into a deep palm-shaded gorge below. From the lookout you can admire spectacular views of the surrounding area, or take one of 2 walks down through the bushland. The walk down to the base of the falls and back is a 4 km round trip and can take up to 2 hours, while the Minyon Loop is 7.5 km and takes 4.5 hours. Both walks are quite easy going down, but a bit tougher on the way back up. Byron Light House Walk To get there, follow Lawson Street (which becomes Lighthouse Road) from Byron Bay town centre and look for the signs. You’ll need a good two hours to complete the Cape Byron walking track – but you can just complete sections. The 3.7km loop leads you on a hike through rainforest and across cliff tops with stunning views of the ocean and hinterland. You will wander through the shade of bangalow palms and ancient burrawangs, across kangaroo grasslands, along picturesque beaches and up to Cape Byron Lighthouse. Broken Head National Park Follow the coast road towards Byron Bay and look for the signs to Broken Head. (Approx 15 mins drive) The Two Sisters Walking Track leads off from the Broken Head Caravan Park and follows the cliff top around to a viewing platform on Broken Head. Cocked Hat Rocks are clearly visible from Broken Head. These two rocks form an important part of the Bundjalung Dreamtime. The Kings Beach Track is a short 350m walk off the Seven Mile Beach Road to Kings Beach. The walk passes through beautiful rainforest and leads to the outstanding Kings Beach. There are several other short walks down to secluded beaches if you continue along the dirt track you will come across several steep tracks leading to beautiful beaches. Victoria Park Nature Reserve Located in Alstonville, Marom creek road off Wardell road coming out of Alstonville The Victoria Park Nature Reserve Protects one of the last surviving remnants of the original rainforest, known as the Big Scrub, which extends across the entire Lismore, Byron Bay, Ballina and Mullumbimby regions. It’s a perfect spot for a relaxing day out with the family in the Northern Rivers. Stroll the easy and accessible boardwalk and you’ll immediately be transported to a tranquil tropical wonderland. Ancient fig trees and majestic black beans tower above while Bangalow palms and ferns grow up from below. Wollumbin Mount Warning National Park Get up early for a truly special hike to see the spectacular sunrise and experience the first rays of sunlight that shine on the Australian continent. During daylight hours, the walking track ascent will take you 2 hours, and the final 250m is a chain assisted rock climb to the summit. At the peak you will find comfortable seats and boardwalks to let you soak up the view of the whole Byron region. The full return walk is 9km long, and will take you approximately 4 hours to complete. 38
