Burleigh Head National Park

National Parks and Reserves

Discover a wild, natural headland in the heart of the Gold Coast that offers walks along the rocky foreshore and through rainforest, and the chance to see whales in spring and sea-eagles soaring along the coast. Ancient volcanic columns meet the sea in this park, which features rainforest, eucalypt forest, pandanus groves, tussock grassland, coastal heath and mangroves. Its northern side is one of Australia’s most famous surfing point breaks.
