Parks and the Great Outdoors

Burleigh-Heads-BeachBurleigh Heads is tucked beneath rolling headlands, studded with towering pines and native pandanus palms.  The Burleigh headland was formed hundreds of years ago by a now-extinct volcano; the area remains a sacred place for Aborigines, whose ancestors once fished and celebrated on these lands.  Nearby is the Burleigh Head National Park, offering hiking trails along the Tallebudgera Creek and stunning views of the Gold Coast.  The quiet beachfront park is a popular draw for both locals and tourists.
