Burleigh Heads

Situated between glistening Surfers Paradise and laid back Coolangatta, Burleigh Heads is famous for pumping surf breaks, towering pine trees and 'to be seen' hip dining.

Hit the Burleigh foreshore any day of the week, a hive of families and roaming entertainment, to make use of the water's edge barbecues with fresh produce from the farmers' market. You could also spend sunset at an alfresco restaurant people-watching or from a luxurious apartment perched high on the hill.
Spot the endless stream of surfers and fishermen day and night walking through the Burleigh Heads National Park, from The Cove to Echo Beach. Rise early and join them for a paddle in a protected corner of swell.

A visit isn't complete without meandering the James Street shopping strip with a freshly squeezed juice in hand while admiring the handmade bespoke pieces, and The Village Markets featuring over 100 chic local designers.

Tallebudgera Creek


Ancient Aborigines used to call this Gold Coast suburb "good fish" and you'll hear no argument from anyone on this apt name. For Tallebudgera is best known for its sparkling creek which is framed by the Burleigh Heads National Park on one side and Palm Beach on the other. This is the focal point for any visit to Tallebudgera where the lifestyle is all about camping, swimming, picnicking, kayaking and a spot of fishing or two.

So popular is the campground here, that generations of families return each summer to claim their favourite spot at the Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park which is perched on the edge of this estuary. For those looking for a little luxury there's also two and three bedroom waterfront villas, or basic lodgings for those on a budget.

While the waters in the creek are renowned for their relative calm, those seeking surf need only walk to nearby Tallebudgera Beach for a few waves. For a true taste of this part of the coast, head to the Tallebudgera Surf Lifesaving Club for a meal at Club Talle. Tally-ho and all that.
