Burleigh Head National Park

Surf, sand and coastal spirit

Hit the waves on a surfboard at the world-renowned Burleigh Heads surf break, or simply salute the surfers at sunrise from the headland in Burleigh Head National Park. This is a quiet place to replenish your soul. Golden sandy beaches fringe the startling blue ocean, where between the waves, you may spot the fins of friendly dolphins, or the majestic form of humpback whales as they travel through the waters between May and November.
