Spring provides the ideal climate and atmosphere to discover Burleigh before the peak summer season - here are seven ways that you can make the most of your Burleigh Heads holiday with us at Swell Resort Burleigh!
Burleigh Beach, Miami Beach and Nobby Beach
Located on Ocean Street, our resort is just a 5-minute walk from Burleigh Beach and the Burleigh Headland in particular, putting one of the best surfing locations on the Gold Coast at the tip of your fingers. Burleigh Beach won’t disappoint if you’re craving a dose of sand, sea and surf this spring, where its relaxed ambience, picturesque white sand and rainforest views promise to serve as the go-to location on your holiday.
For beach-strollers and beach-hoppers, it’s worth taking a walk north of Burleigh Beach, where you’ll find a whole new atmosphere to enjoy on Miami Beach and Nobby Beach.
Burleigh Head National Park
Another short walk from our Burleigh Heads hotel and resort, Burleigh Head National Park is a natural gem on the Gold Coast that shouldn’t go undiscovered during spring. Teeming with wildlife, tropical flora and breathtaking lookouts, this must-visit rainforest offers an exciting adventure that can be spread over one morning or afternoon.
Follow the signed walking tracks or improvise with your own rainforest circuit - either way, Burleigh Head National Park guarantees hours of sightseeing with birds to spot in the trees, rare plants to observe and views across Burleigh Beach and the Pacific Ocean that you won’t forget.
John Laws Park
Take the ocean view walk west out of Burleigh Head National Park and you’ll find yourself in John Laws Park, where you can savour a spectacular view of the beach on Burleigh Hill. John Laws Park is a popular picnic and relaxation spot, which is also just a stone’s throw away from a wide choice of Burleigh Heads cafés and restaurants.
On Burleigh Hill, make sure to find Cock Rock - a rocky lookout and picture-taking spot which overhangs Burleigh Beach with incredible views along the coast towards Surfers Paradise.
Burleigh Restaurants Gold Coast
Your spring holiday isn’t complete without tasting Burleigh’s famous local dining scene, boasting some of the best restaurants on the Gold Coast with more than a handful of exciting choices to satisfy all tastes and preferences.
Near our central Burleigh Heads apartments, find a number of must-try restaurants on Connor Street and Goodwin Terrace - such as The Fish House and Rick Shores - or dine just footsteps from the beach at The Surf Club Burleigh Heads.
David Fleay Wildlife Park
An unforgettable day out in Burleigh Heads this spring waits at David Fleay Wildlife Park. This top Gold Coast wildlife attraction isn’t to be missed for all ages, situated in Tallebudgera Creek Conservation Park and only a 10-minute drive from our Burleigh accommodation.
Arrive early to make the most of everything David Fleay Wildlife Park has to offer, including memorable animal encounters - from reptiles to birds and mammals - to firsthand feeding experiences which allow you to get up-close and personal with your favourite Australian species.
Tallebudgera Creek - which separates Burleigh Heads and Tallebudgera - is an unmissable nearby location if you’re seeking the ideal change of pace from the beach.
Tuck into a picnic on the water’s edge then jump in a kayak to explore the creek and its lush hinterland surroundings - Tallebudgera Creek is an idyllic local hotspot for nature lovers and outdoor adventurers with more than enough to keep you busy for the day. It’s also a popular location for casting a line and seeing what you can reel in!
Burleigh Heads Markets
Burleigh Heads is home to a few of the best popup marketplaces on the Gold Coast, and if you’re either a bargain hunter, fashionista, street food lover or all of the above, it’s well worth knowing which Burleigh markets you can catch during your holiday.
The famous Burleigh Heads Village Markets are held on the first and third Sunday of the month at Burleigh Heads State School, offering high-quality fashion, antique and souvenir stalls with live music and good food. Also at Burleigh Heads State School, don’t miss the Burleigh Market on Saturdays, popular for its spread of fresh farmers’ produce. On the final Sunday of the month, the large Gold Coast Art and Craft Markets come to Justins Park - not to be ignored if you're looking to get your hands on locally made souvenirs, jewellery and homewares.
