Alfresco Dining in Burleigh
Dining in Burleigh Heads is a must on your holiday, and the best way to do it is in the sun with a fantastic view of Burleigh Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
Just a short walk from our location on the beach, visit Goodwin Terrace for award-winning cuisine at Rick Shores and The Fish House, both of which offer a sprawling view across Burleigh Beach. Find more tempting alfresco restaurants and cafés on Connor Street, or visit North Burleigh Surf Life Saving Club and The Surf Club Burleigh Heads for memorable dining experiences just footsteps from the sand.
Burleigh Head National Park
On Burleigh headland and visible from Burleigh Beach, Burleigh Head National Park is one of Burleigh’s most prominent features. This beachside rainforest shouldn’t be left undiscovered on any Gold Coast holiday, offering numerous walking trails through the rainforest and towards the ocean’s edge with lots to see along the way.
This summer, make sure to see Burleigh Head National Park – pack a picnic and put on some comfortable shoes then explore its wonderful sights at your own pace. There are ocean lookouts, unique flora and wildlife to find within the park, all free to discover across one adventurous morning or afternoon.
David Fleay Wildlife Park
Get even closer to wildlife on your Burleigh Heads holiday at David Fleay Wildlife Park. A short drive from Burleigh Beach, David Fleay Wildlife Park is a must-visit Gold Coast attraction and park with a multitude of wildlife encounters to experience over one whole day out.
Meet iconic Australian birds, mammals and reptiles, with just a few including wedge-tailed eagles, wallabies, platypuses, water pythons, kangaroos and estuarine crocodiles. Don’t miss the regular wildlife shows and take the time to learn all about the park’s history, established by celebrated Australian conservationist David Fleay.
Burleigh Heads Parks
In addition to Burleigh Head National Park, Burleigh Heads Gold Coast has a number of scenic beachfront parks that are worth visiting when in need of a change of pace on your holiday.
On a lazy summer’s day, head to Justins Park, Ed Harry Park, Rotary Park or Ed Hardy Park – all located along Burleigh Beach with open grassy areas for recreational sports, shady areas for picnics and fun playground stops for the kids.
