There is nothing quite like a spectacular coastal view to remind you how magical the Northern Rivers is, and Pat Morton Lookout provides one of the best. On the top of Lennox Point, just a five-minute drive or half-hour walk via coastal boardwalk from Lennox Head, the lookout offers seats and a grassy area with idyllic views over the village and up Seven Mile Beach.
With hang gliders wheeling overhead; the sun glistening on the water; whales (from May to October) and dolphins breaking the surface; and surfers riding the famous right-hand break into shore, it is a magnificent spot at which to linger a while. Tip: be sure to bring a well-stocked picnic basket with you.
Head up the steps to the top of the lookout and you get dramatic views to the south, too. From here, the beautiful, often windswept, walk along the grassy clifftops down to Boulder Beach is a must-do, and, if you’ve got a couple of hours up your sleeve, you can keep going all the way to Ballina.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
