Lake Ainsworth Lennox Head
Lake Ainsworth was named after James Ainsworth, Thomas Ainsworth’s son. The Ainsworth’s were one of the first European families to take up land in the region, settling on the North Head of Ballina in 1847.
The Lake is situated north of the town and 50 metres behind the dunes. The lake is a fresh water lagoon that is permanently discouloured by ti-trea (tea-tree) tanins leaching from the treas that surround the lake.
