See the Whales Near Our Burleigh Heads Accommodation

Want to do something unforgettable this spring 2021? Head to the Gold Coast for FREE whale watching

Is it possible to whale-watch without spending a thing? It is – in Burleigh Heads. Burleigh is easily the best destination to see the whales on the Gold Coast, boasting several unbeatable lookout points that offer sweeping ocean views right into the horizon.

All you need to do is bring a trusty pair of binoculars.

Sure, you can book a Gold Coast whale watching tour for guaranteed sightings, but if you’re strapped for cash this spring then free whale watching is the next best thing. There’s nothing like seeing a real-life humpback whale first-hand, and this spring is your chance.

July to October marks peak whale watching season on the Gold Coast, during which thousands (yes, you read that right) of humpback whales migrate the famous “Humpback Highway” just off the coast of Queensland.

And Burleigh Heads Gold Coast is THE place to be for free whale watching sightings.

Intrigued? Then make sure to visit one of these Gold Coast whale watching spots this spring near our Burleigh Heads accommodation.

Burleigh Hill/Burleigh Point

Burleigh Hill, right next to Burleigh Beach, is everyone’s favourite chill spot, and the reason why is the sparkling ocean views it offers right into the horizon.

Head up Burleigh Hill, throw down a picnic blanket and keep your binoculars at the ready. The best thing is you won’t get bored – simply sunbathe, soak up the view and keep your eyes peeled for humpback whales splashing in the distance.

Tumgun Lookout Burleigh Heads

Want to get higher up? Then Tumgun Lookout is another top vantage point in Burleigh Heads that’s not too far from Burleigh Hill.

Find Tumgun Lookout in Burleigh Head National Park. It’s an observation deck that’s easily reached with far-reaching views into the ocean. Even without whale sightings, Tumgun Lookout is worth visiting just for its breath-taking panoramic views. Again, don’t forget those binoculars.

Burleigh Head National Park Ocean Walk

There’s a reason why Burleigh Head National Park Ocean Walk is one of the Gold Coast’s most popular locations to stroll. The Ocean View Track stays true to its name, offering incredible ocean views from the park’s rocky edge.

If you like to keep moving, then the Ocean View Walk is for you. Enjoy the sweeping panoramic views and have your binoculars at the ready – the migrating humpback whales are possible to see in the distance and you could even capture a few impressive photos with the right lens.
