Burleigh Heads Information

Burleigh Heads in Queensland is a world renowned tourist destination for its surf break. The town has a population of about 8,500 people and is an ideal place to visit away from the tourist ridden towns on the Gold Coast.

The headland of Burleigh is known as “The Point” and the best place to relax and party is in James Street where you will find plenty of cafes restaurants and pubs to entertain you while on holiday.

Nature lovers will enjoy Burleigh Head National Park. Here you will find ancient volcanic columns that run into the sea. To the northern point of the park you will find one of Australia’s most famous surfing point breaks which is also the spot for the Quicksilver Pro Surfing Tournament. There is also a kilometre track for you to walk through for some excellent eco adventure where you will see brush-turkeys, water dragons and many other rare plants and species.

Another great experience is visiting Tallebudgera Creek. Located to the northern side of Burleigh National Park, Tallebudgera Creek is a sheltered estuary which runs into the ocean. Here is the perfect placed for many favourite water activities including fishing, boating and kayaking. The spot is very popular for families as the water is shallow and sheltered from the waves of the open ocean.

The Burleigh art and craft markets are another fantastic experience where there is something for everyone. The markets are held on the last Sunday of every month right on the beach in Burleigh Heads. Here you will find jewellery, toys, fashion accessories and more locally made goodies for the perfect unique present.

One of the most fabulous ways to see Burleigh Heads is taking a scenic balloon flight in a hot air balloon. Other great activities include cycling, sightseeing, camping, surfing, skydiving, water skiing and four wheel driving.
