If you're looking for a more relaxed destination on the Gold Coast, welcome to Burleigh Heads.
This chilled-out suburb might not have the high-budget attractions of nearby Surfers Paradise, but you won't find a better place to lose yourself in the beauty of South East Queensland from the crashing waves to the fragrant pines.
Whether you're planning a romantic getaway or looking for things to do with friends or family, here are five experiences you won't want to miss while you're in Burleigh.
1. Catch the waves at Burleigh Beach
For many people, the name Burleigh Heads is synonymous with surfing. There are good reasons for that the breaks at Burleigh Beach and the Esplanade are legendary, while beginner surfers can get in some practice in the protected areas all year round.
2. Explore Burleigh Heads National Park
Look inland to see more of Burleigh's natural beauty in the Heritage-listed national park that runs all along the headland. Hit the walking trails to take in the ocean views and listen to the bird song or head straight to sheltered Tallebudgera Creek for snorkelling and kayaking.
3. Meet the critters at David Fleay Wildlife Park
While you're at Tallebudgera Creek, don't miss the chance to see your favourite native Australian animals up close at David Fleay Wildlife Park. You'll meet emus, dingoes, koalas, kangaroos, crocs, dunnarts, brolgas and bilbies, and don't leave without saying hi to Wally the platypus.
4. See how craft beer's made at Burleigh Brewing
The Burleigh Brewing Company is one of Queensland's great craft beer success stories. You can see how their award-winning brews are made by taking a tour of their new state-of-the-art brewery, which opened its doors in March 2016. You'll also have the chance to taste your favourites fresh from the barrel.
5. Pick up boutique bargains at the Village Markets
Burleigh Heads' Village Markets was named the Gold Coast's Best Market of 2015, so make sure you leave time for souvenir shopping before you head home. With more than 100 stalls selling clothing, artworks, homewares and unique handicrafts made by talented local designers, the Village Markets are the best place in the Gold Coast to find vintage and current fashion at cheap prices.
