Just over 90 km south of Brisbane, on the popular Gold Coast, is Burleigh Heads
and the Burleigh Heads National Park.
First gazetted in 1947, adjacent to the Tallebudgera Creek entrance, the park
covers an area of just over 27 hectares and is the last remaining headland in
the Gold Coast region to be left close to its natural state.
This special park features the Burleigh headland, a prominent Gold Coast
landmark, a wild natural headland where you can walk along the rocky foreshore
with the chance to do some whale watching off the coastal waters during spring,
or a spot of bird spotting such as sea-eagles, brush turkeys and migratory
birds, that use the region as a refuge and a feeding area.
