Shelter

Top choice Australian

in Lennox Head

One of the region's tastiest offerings, head here for generous lashings of entrees (like 'eat 'em whole' Clarence River school prawns) and sides like Brussels sprouts with cultured cream and mustard. Sit out front for beach glimpses during the day. Book ahead for dinner.

The beautifully styled two-bedroom unit above offers even better views that the restaurant below, and is available as 'Cupola' on Airbnb via Shelter's website.
