Description

Burleigh Head National Park is home to rainforest, eucalypt forest, pandanus groves, tussock grassland, coastal heath, mangroves, creeks, rocky foreshore and beaches. Most of the Rainforest circuit is an easy grade, but there is a steep section in the middle near Tumgun lookout. The lookout is a good place to watch for humpback whales splashing offshore in winter and spring. For the safety of visitors, sections of the track skirting the coastline may be closed during wet weather, due to the risk of rock falls.
