If you’re looking for a quintessential Gold Coast beach experience, Burleigh Heads’ summer is hard to beat. It’s sun, sand and surf all day, with plenty of al fresco dining spots to soak up vitamin D—and without the crowds, too.
Cool off with a summer cocktail at some of Gold Coast’s best bars and restaurants right here in Burleigh. Grab a pint of beer at Burleigh Brewing Company—the only craft brewer in Gold Coast—or enjoy a pizza and cocktails at a rooftop bar.
Duck out of the heat and splash into the cool waters of the Tallebudgera Creek, nestled between Burleigh Heads National Park and Palm Beach. There are campsites, picnic spots, kayaking and fishing that the kids will absolutely love.
Get into the festive spirit and celebrate a uniquely Australian summer Christmas in Burleigh Heads with light-ups, carols on the beach and festive beachside dining.
Take full advantage of the low season and enjoy great prices on tours and accommodation, and explore Burleigh’s iconic spots with all the space and quiet you need. The temperatures are still pleasantly cool in the fall sunshine, so the outdoors are still good to explore, especially if you have kids in tow during the Easter school break.
Take your own sweet time to explore Burleigh Heads’ iconic markets—the Burleigh Heads Farmers Markets and The Village Markets—and pick up some fresh seasonal produce or local handicrafts.
During the school holidays, kids can become Junior Rangers for a day at David Fleay Wildlife Park. Stroll through the tranquil natural habitats and learn about what goes into caring for some of the region’s most unique native animals.
Feel the gentle sea breeze and lap up the ocean views on a bushwalk and picnic at Burleigh Head National Park. Or rollerblade and cycle along the Burleigh boardwalk.
If cold winters don’t sound appealing, Burleigh Heads is the tropical escape you need. Just look at the throngs of tourists flocking to its shores every winter—it’s a popular spot this time of year. The mornings are chilly and the days are cool, perfect for a long lounge on one of Gold Coast’s best beaches. It’s the start of whale migration season so keep your eyes peeled on the waters for a sweet surprise.
The winter days are short so there’s plenty of time to sneak in a sunset hike before dinner. Go on a walk around the Burleigh Headland to Tumgun Lookout to catch the sunset as twinkling fireflies come out to play.
The annual Gold Coast Marathon takes place every winter along Burleigh’s scenic coast, attracting participants of all ages and abilities. Whether you’re going the full distance or just joining the fun run, it’s a great activity for the whole family.
Burleigh Heads is a surfer’s paradise all year round but winter is the best time to ride the swell, with light offshore winds that mean clean, consistent waves for surfing.
Spring in Burleigh Heads is as pleasant as it gets—mild humidity, cool sea breezes and just enough rain. The temperatures are cool and the waters warm—it’s no wonder locals and tourists alike can’t resist a spring vacay in Burleigh.
It’s peak whale-watching season as these gentle giants make their way across the iconic “Humpback Highway” off the coast. Sign yourself up for a whale-watching tour or grab a pair of binoculars to catch the whales from one of Burleigh’s many lookout points.
Surf rookies—spring is your time to shine. The waves are smaller and gentler during spring, making it a great time to pick up one of Australia’s favorite pastimes.
Before the summer heat creeps in, soak up the sun on Burleigh Heads Beach while the temperatures are still cool and the waters are comfortably warm.
Prefer to keep dry? Watch the surfers from the North Burleigh Surf Club over a sundowner or any of Burleigh’s idyllic beachfront restaurants and cafés.
