North Coast NSW is one of my favourite areas in Australia. It’s lush, hilly, filled with ancient rainforests, magnificent views, stunning coastline and beaches, and alternative lifestyles.

It’s where my soul comes to breathe and just be.

Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast

The best way to take in all the beauty and serenity of this region is on a NSW road trip from Lennox Head to the Gold Coast.

It passes through the hinterland and also vast stretches of coast, as well as stops through sleepy towns where you can kick off your shoes and let your worries slip away.

There are so many beautiful places to enjoy on this drive, that we felt it was only right to share them with you. In this guide, we’ll be sharing the ultimate New South Wales road trip itinerary from Lennox Head to Gold Coast and all the top spots to check out along the way.

Go take a look!

What Is the Drive from Lennox Head to Gold Coast?

The Lennox Head to Gold Coast road trip is a scenic drive that takes you along the coast of New South Wales, Australia. The whole drive takes only an hour and 30 minutes, but you will want to stop off at several locations along the way.

We recommend you start from Lennox Head and head north towards the Gold Coast, but you can easily reverse this itinerary and drive the other way, extending the trip on to Yamba, South West Rocks and even on to Sydney.

How long you spend doing this road trip will largely depend on how much time you have available, as some stops can be skipped if you’re short on time.

If you have longer, then you can easily use it. It’s worth spending a day or two at each destination we mention in the below itinerary so you can really explore the area, although we don’t recommend anywhere that you could would need to spend over a week at.
