BE REWARDED BY AN ENERGETIC COMMUNITY AND NATURAL PLAYGROUND
Burleigh Heads is one of the Gold Coast’s most popular and picturesque suburbs, renowned for its point break, protected nature reserve and bustling precinct. Locals here share a passion for surf, leisure, dining and active living, creating a lifestyle that is distinctly ‘Burleigh’.
Despite its enviable natural and cultural offering, which draws thousands of visitors each week, Burleigh remains a relatively small and peaceful suburb with few opportunities to own a beachfront address.
Luckily, however, the essence of seaside living is felt in all parts of the suburb, especially in central James Street. Here, alternative folk, business professionals and families rub shoulders in a series of fine dining and casual food outlets, family-owned shops and boutiques. Barefoot shoppers capture the relaxed, local identity.
Located at the southern end of the Gold Coast, Burleigh Headland is an important landmark that covers 27 hectares of rainforest. Mangroves weave among a rocky shoreline that opens up to Tallebudgera Creek, an ideal spot for picnics and swimming. After lunch or a paddle, take a guided walk with the Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre to spot white-bellied sea eagles and waterdragons.
Burleigh is connected to the Gold Coast Highway, and eventually leads to the Pacific Motorway from West Burleigh Road for a 50-minute drive to Brisbane. The Gold Coast Airport is easily accessible about 15 minutes south, while the city’s entertainment capital, Surfers Paradise, is just 20 minutes north.
