Burleigh Head National Park
Gold Coast Area
Free Entry - Entry Information
At Burleigh Head National Park, ancient volcanic columns meet the sea. The Kombumerri people named this prominent rocky headland Jellurgal. Today, its northern side is one of Australia's most famous surfing point breaks. Walk to Tumgun lookout, where migrating whales may be seen. Admire the coastal vista to Surfers Paradise across Burleigh Beach, the venue for many international surfing tournaments. Take the 1.2 kilometre Oceanview walk or the 2.3 kilometre (return) Rainforest circuit through a living museum of plants, many of them rare. See Australian brush-turkey nesting mounds, seabirds and water dragons. Picnic on Burleigh foreshore or relax on Echo Beach. A ramp to the fishing platform provides access for wheel chairs. Visit the information centre to learn about the park's interesting history.
Children are welcome. This area has natural hazards including rocky slopes and water - supervise children closely.
There is a wheelchair ramp to the fishing platform on Tallebudgera Creek, at the southern entrance to the park. The tracks within the park are not wheelchair-accessible.
Camping is not permitted.
