Lovely place for a bite to eat, shop for some local produce and there's the animal farm there too. Worth the drive, only 15 minutes south on the old Pacific Highway!
A great interactive experience for any age, interact with animals and sample some of the amazing treats available from the gift shop.
“Great store with jewellery designed and made on site plus many other gift and clothing lines. Situated above the IGA and bottle shop”
“A chilled out surf town with plenty of great places to eat. Lennox Head is a ten minute drive from the villa or about a thirty minute cycle, if you use the cycle path. As you head into Lennox, make sure to call in at the Pat Morton lookout for expansive views of Lennox Head and Seven Mile Beach. From here you can also take the coastal path around to Sharpes Beach. In the village centre, you will find many great coffee stops and bustling shops. Check out Seed & Husk for some local wares and Papaya cafe for an organic smoothie. Head out towards the famous Lake Ainsworth for a freshwater swim followed with a stroll by the lakeside. The lake is popular with families due to the calm waters. Grab a hot chocolate from the surf club kiosk to round off the perfect morning or afternoon. As you head back to the villa make sure to call in at Shelter restaurant for local, sustainable produce and sea vistas. A 3pm oyster plate and chilled white wine is our personal favourite. ”
“In 30 minutes you could be wizzing down the slides at the Ballina pool. It's been recently renovated and has a nice grassy area to sit and picnic whilst kids go crazy.”
“It's our local PUB...nothing more to say! Except- the upstairs has stunning views of the ocean, comfy seating and a trendy restaurant.”
