About Burleigh Heads

Burleigh Heads is a small township and stretch of beach located in the southern end of the Gold Coast. It is bordered by two headlands, Miami Headland to the north and Burleigh Headland to the south. Burleigh Beach is fringed by a parkland of Norfolk Pines and a pathway for joggers and cyclists, which is a part of the popular Gold Coast Oceanway. Along the pathway, visitors to Burleigh Heads can use complimentary barbecues and picnic facilities, while swimmers can make use of freshwater showers.
Burleigh Heads is a popular escape for locals and visitors wanting a day at the beach. Bushwalkers can enjoy the beauty of Burleigh Headlands where there are two popular walking trails through native bushland. The Rainforest Circuit takes hikers up the hill to the summit, where spectacular views include panoramic vistas of the ocean and the hinterland. While the Ocean Circuit takes bushwalkers around the headland, just above sea level.
Burleigh Heads is a popular spot for surfers and is often the site of professional surfing competitions. An abundance of cafes, restaurants and relaxing drinking spots make this beachside village a popular choice for both locals and visitors. Explore shopping just off the beach in James St or visit in the memorial park across from the beach and in the very heart of Burleigh Heads.
