Burleigh Heads Beach, Gold Coast

The Burleigh Heads Beach is located in a small town, right on the Gold Coast in Queensland. The ocean here is in beautiful contrast with the over 400 pine trees right behind the beach.

Burleigh Headland is in a wildlife corridor that connects the Queensland-New South Wales border and coastal forests. Its geology gives it a wide variety of habitats.

Also, due to the area conservation effort, there you can see many local plants, such as Eucalyptus species Koalas favour. Another wildlife native to the area includes over 60 bird species, gliders, and flying foxes.

Getting there

Tourists can easily reach Burleigh Heads by car through the Gold Coast Highway, bus, or from the Gold Coast Airport.
