In my opinion, just as famous as Surfers Paradise. Travel along the Gold Coast Hway south of Surfers. Can stop off at Broadbeach to look at the shops, maybe spend a few hours at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. I digress however. Perhaps after a bit of shopping head for Burleigh. Plenty of parking along the Esplanade. More shops and numerous... More

Forget about Surfers Paradise, Burleigh is 100 times better with a beautiful cove beach, absolute oceanfront dining, great bars, cafes and boutique shopping. This is where you'll find the Gold Coast locals mixing with the more savvy tourists because Burleigh still has that beach town feeling. On your next trip to the Gold Coast, try Burleigh!

One of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. Have a holiday here, you won't be disappointed. Lunch at the Burleigh Heads Surf Club is the icing on the cake!

Burleigh Heads Beach is great and has been voted the no1 beach in Queensland. It is always busy with loads of free parking (about to change in March 2017). I live on the Gold Coast and always visit the beaches most weekends with the family and use this beach often. Great facilities, especially the surf club and a safe and... More

A great busy. Awesome water. Swimming area got busy so not much room for body boards. The trees gave great cover from sun and later in the evening, enjoyed local fish and chips until dark.
