Beautiful Burleigh Heads in Pictures

I often have to slap myself to realise what a gorgeous place I live in. The Gold Coast in South East Queensland is a tourist hotspot and during peak holiday times can get extremely busy and crowded. However, where I live on the mid Gold Coast at Burleigh Heads it seems to have taken a step back from tourism and has a more laid back vibe and beachy feel to it. I’m extremely excited to bring you beautiful Burleigh Heads in pictures for your visual enjoyment.

For those who don’t know where Burleigh Heads is located it is approximately midway along the coastal strip of the Gold Coast. It has a charm all of its own with a famous right-hand point break off the headland and the beautiful pine-backed beach that is safe to swim in all year round. Plus it has hectares and hectares of beautiful parklands, BBQs, picnic shelters and walking/cycling paths that fringe the beach.

Here’s some of my favourite photos of Burleigh Heads:

Burleigh Heads Beach

The beach is patrolled by Lifeguards seven days a week.

Burleigh Beach is always a picture.

Burleigh Headland

No matter what time of day Burleigh Headland is the perfect spot to sit and chill for a while taking in the pretty scenery and watching the waves pump into the headland. You might even see dolphins surfing the waves and during whale season a humpback or two performing acrobatics off the shore.

Burleigh Headland is a very popular place for friends and family to gather on the weekends for a picnic or early evening aperitifs whilst watching the sun dip into the Gold Coast Hinterland to the west.

Most mornings I take the walk either along the path between Burleigh Heads and North Burleigh, or on the golden sandy beach, then up to Headland to take in the views. Not a day is the same and I often sit here and ponder before I start my busy day.

Burleigh Headland National Park

Otherwise I take the walking path around the headland through the National Park on one of the tracks. There are a number of tracks that either take you around the headland or through the middle of the headland amidst dense rainforest.

Once you get to the top of the headland there is a lookout that gives you stunning views over Tallebudgera Creek and down to the south of the Gold Coast as far as Coolangatta/Tweed Heads.

On the lower path that fringes the ocean you will get gorgeous glimpses like these.

Burleigh Surfing

Burleigh Point is one of the Gold Coast’s iconic surfing meccas and hosts a few surfing events throughout the year. It is arguably one of the most consistent waves on the Gold Coast.

When the surf is up, hundreds of surfers compete for waves off Burleigh Point.

It is a high-performance break that offers perfect waves for surfers who manage to get over the granite boulders along the shoreline.

Burleigh Beach Walking

Equally as enjoyable is a stroll along the golden sand between Burleigh Heads and North Burleigh, a distance of 3Km.

It’s a very popular walking highway with plenty of firm sand to make it easier.

If you are visiting the Gold Coast make sure you put Burleigh Heads on your must see list. There is plenty of eye candy here and heaps of great places to relax, eat, drink or browse the shops in close proximity to the beach and headland.

    It is gorgeous Kathy. Are you getting sentimental at the thought of leaving? How is the Sale of the House going?

      Yes I’m so lucky to live where I do. I’m going to miss it if and when we move. No movement on the house sale front yet.

    Ohh, it looks so beautiful and your photos do make me want to visit. They are gorgeous and I’m loving the large format. I’d definitely be doing that beach walk every morning I could. You will miss it, but hopefully you’re moving somewhere equally as lovely. Good luck with the house sale :)

      I can assure you that Burleigh Heads is a beautiful place and I will be sad to leave. However where we’re moving to is equally as beautiful and a lot less crowded and quieter. I hope you get to travel to the Gold Coast someday. :)
