Description Located right in the heart of the Gold Coast, beautiful Burleigh Head National Park is situated on a rugged natural headland overlooking the Pacific Ocean and bordered to the south by lovelyTallebudgera Creek. Although it's small in size it possesses a great diversity of geographical features, flora and fauna, making it a great spot to take friends and relatives who are visiting from overseas.
For the adventurous, there are two walking trails, one that follows the coastline (the Ocean View walk) and the other that meanders a little more inland (the Rainforest Circuit). The park is also a popular spot with surfers, while the sheltered sandy beaches of Tallebudgera Creek are perfect for families with young children or the elderly. Finally, the views are priceless, especially as you wander along the Ocean View walk, so be sure to bring your camera.
Due to its central location, a visit to Burleigh Head National Park is possible even just for a very short lunch break, or for a quick walk and picnic with the kids after school. Otherwise, you could easily spend a whole day here.
