Burleigh Head National Park

All kids love to explore, and Burleigh Head National Park offers an abundance of things to see and experience within its lush 30-hectare grounds.

Burleigh Head National Park sits on the end of Burleigh Beach, boasting trails, flora and fauna, ocean views, coastal lookouts and hidden picnic spots.

What’s great about this unique national park is you can take a set route or simply improvise your way to the rocky edges, where you’ll be treated to the best ocean views the coast has to offer.

Tallebudgera Creek

Find Tallebudgera Creek on the other side of Burleigh Head National Park (before Tallebudgera Beach and Palm Beach). This natural attraction isn’t to be ignored as it is the best location for kayaking and paddling on the Gold Coast.

Don’t have kayaks or stand-up paddleboards? You can hire them at Smoothwaters Kayak Hire. And if kayaking isn’t your thing, you can kick back with a picnic on the creekside, or even throw out a line and see what you can catch for your family barbecue!

Learn to Surf Burleigh Heads

You can’t have a Gold Coast holiday without surfing, and Burleigh Heads just so happens to be one of the best beaches to surf on the Gold Coast.

The headland, at the foot of Burleigh Head National Park, generates year-round surfing conditions for beginners and pros. And what’s more is you can learn from the best at Godfathers of the Ocean Burleigh, which is located right next to The Surf Club Burleigh Heads.

Godfathers of the Ocean offer one-on-one sessions as well as group lessons for families. All ages and abilities are also welcome!
