Burleigh Head National Park

Reviewed By Deb O - Gold Coast Australia

The walk through Burleigh National Park is invigorating.
Take the high track to the lookout over all of the southern Beaches OR take the low track through the bush.
Whichever you choose, you'll be glad you did.
Remember to look up early morning as koalas are plentiful.
Wear joggers and loose or exercise clothes.

David Fleay Wildlife Park

Reviewed By dreamingtraveller2 - Gold Coast, QLD

We regularly visit Fleay’s as it’s our favourite local wildlife experience. The shows are informative and interesting, the park is beautifully presented, the staff are knowledgable and friendly and it’s super affordable. Perfect for families with a full timetable of shows. Easy to walk around within an hour or take longer and enjoy the presentations.

Burleigh Markets

Reviewed By Diane A - Gold Coast Qld Australia

One of the best Farmer Markets on the GC. Heaps of stalls offering a amazing selection of fresh produce. Which lasts and tastes so much better than buying from the supermarket.
Great friendly vendors set in a cool ambience. I visit every Saturday for my supplies, good source of breakfast options always live music. Awesome way to start the weekend. Plants ,clothes and some local crafts for sale here too. Heaps of parking and ATM available.

Tumgun Lookout

Reviewed By Bernie A

This is one of my fav go-to spots for a quick run in the morning with friends. You get the ocean right there, with a stunning view mid way. I believe the ocean strip is still not accessible so haven't been back for a month now but need to do a run again soon.

We visited the Sunday Markets in the Burleigh School Grounds. The stalls are full of clothes, jewellery, homewares mostly made by the stallholders. There are food vans also, plus some local musicians. Plenty of free parking in the school grounds. Toilets are open. Most enjoyable visit.

John Laws Park

Reviewed By Mrs A - Brisbane, Australia

John Laws Park sits atop Goodwin Terrace and provides excellent views from Burleigh Heads to Surfers Paradise on a clear day. There are a number of shady pandanus trees to sit under as well as a grassed area (but you might need a beach umbrella to avoid the sun burn). We saw a pod of dolphins the day we visited as well as plenty of surfers trying their luck on the waves. There are plenty of take away shops in Burleigh to grab a bite to eat. Kids are also looked after with play equipment. Off-street and on-street parking is available. Toilets are available too. If you have some overseas visitors, the park is certainly a great place to take them to show them the views. Atop the hill is the Burleigh Hill walking track for people with a fitness passion (not us oldies I am afraid).

Reviewed By agchristie - Chilliwack, Canada

Small but informative cultural centre. Loved all the original Aboriginal artwork and history. A nice gift shop has many lovely items for sale. We guided ourselves around which was fine since everything is self explanatory. Coffee shop was closed for renovations when we visited. A short walk from hotels and Beaches in Burleigh Heads.

This park is little known park. The first park that greats you when you arrive at Burleigh. The City of Gold Coast maintains this park to the highest standard both for locals and visitors. If you look hard you will find this park. Enjoy and relax and say thanks to a great place
