Burleigh Heads

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.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
