Lake Ainsworth is a fresh water lagoon that is coloured by tea tree tannins leaching from the Melaleuca trees that surround the lake and is a very popular swimming, paddling and sailing (no motor boats) spot for locals and visitors.
The water is said to have health giving and rejuvenating properties for the skin and hair and the parkland surrounding the lake is complemented by wonderful barbecue and picnic facilities.
Go camping at Lennox Head Holiday Park, or stay at NSW Department of Sport & Recreation Centre and Camp Drewe.
