Renowned for its surf break, the famous "Burleigh Barrel" and major surfboard competitions, Burleigh Heads is an ideal alternative from the more touristy towns of the Gold Coast. Situated at the southern end of the coast, the fringes of this popular little resort extends as far as Miami in the north and to Tallebudgera Creek. Surrounded by nature, the gently curving beach is bordered by the Burleigh Heads National Park, 25 hectares of coastal rainforest. Within the Park there are a number of walking trails which you can follow around the coastline offering fantastic views along the coast and surrounding area. If you’re lucky the walk to Tumgun lookout, may provide a glimpse or two of migrating whales.
Weather permitting, the Burleigh Art and Craft markets is a great day out on the last Sunday of every month. Located on the Burley beach front, Justins Park becomes home to over 150 stalls of locally made crafts, fresh produce, fashion, jewellery and even skincare.
West Burleigh is home to a large industrial and shopping park which among all its services and goods offers a wide selection of dining options.
