Gold Coast - Burleigh Heads National Park
Right in the heart of the busy Gold Coast, Burleigh Head National Park provides a peaceful haven for wildlife and walkers. Remnants of past volcanic activity, littoral rainforest and reminders of the living culture of the Kombumerri people are protected in this park. The Kombumerri call the headland “Jellurgal”.
In spite of its small
size, the park is quite diverse, with fringing mangroves along the creek,
and windswept tussock grassland, open forest, rainforest and coastal vegetation
around the headland.
Picnic on the Burleigh foreshore just outside the park. Toilets are located here and near the park’s southern entrance.
Visit the Burleigh Head
Information Centre on the Gold Coast Highway to find out about the park, Kombumerri
culture and nearby hinterland parks.
The park lies between Burleigh Heads and the Tallebudgera Creek estuary and is about 70 minutes from Brisbane
