John Laws Park

Parks and Gardens

John Laws Park offers one of the most magical views anywhere in the world! A stunning park right atop Burleigh Headland, there are views all the way to Surfers Paradise.

Each weekend, picnic and barbecues are plentiful with the grassy hill area a popular destination for locals and holidaymakers. Bring your own picnic, or grab a take away meal or coffee from the coffee shops nearby.

At the top of Burleigh Hill is the Burleigh Heads National Park. This is a popular walking or running track, with two loop options – rainforest or ocean view. The return journeys are 2.3 and 2.4 kilometres respectively, offering superb views and the relaxing soothe of the rainforest escape.

Access to the patrolled Burleigh Beach is just around the corner, this beach known worldwide for its majestic views overlooking the rocks at Burleigh Point, all the way to the Surfers Paradise skyline.

The kids aren’t forgotten, and the slippery dip and swings in John Laws Park have the best views on the Coast! Head around the corner to Justins Park, and here you will find a massive kids playground, with slippery dip, balance beam, spinning tea cup and swings.
