Located halfway along the Gold Coast's 70 kilometre coastline, Burleigh Heads holds a special place in the hearts of locals.
Nestled beneath the rolling green Burleigh headland, studded with its distinctive pines and pandanus palms, this gently curving beach is protected and offers magical views north to Surfers Paradise.
Famed worldwide for its tubular Burleigh Barrel waves, the beach is the venue for major international surfboard riding tournaments.
The dramatic Burleigh headland was formed by an ancient volcano and is a sacred spot for Aborigines who once gathered here to fish and feast. It adjoins the Burleigh Head National Park on the banks of the Tallebudgera Creek.
