The humpback whales migrate along the famed “humpback highway” every year from July to October. These beautiful creatures pass the Gold Coast and are indeed a sight to behold. If you don’t want to spend money on a whale-watching excursion, Burleigh Heads is the best place to catch a free look at the magnificent humpbacks, only a short walk from our apartments.

Burleigh Head National Park, near Burleigh Beach, is a fantastic location. There’s a reason why the Burleigh Head National Park Ocean Walk is one of the most popular places to walk on the Gold Coast.

The Ocean View Track lives true to its name. It offers stunning views of the ocean from the park’s high cliffs. Make sure to bring your binoculars so you can observe migratory humpback whales. Also, why not get your camera? You might even be able to catch beautiful moments with the appropriate lens.

The Rainforest Circuit in Burleigh Head National Park is also worth a visit. The majority of this trail is flat, although there is a steep part near Tumgun Lookout in the centre. It is a fantastic area to spot humpback whales splashing offshore in the winter and spring. And while you’re there, why not have a picnic with your family or friends? Picnic spots and restrooms are available near the park’s northern entrance along Goodwin Terrace.

During the whale watching season, Burleigh can indeed provide an unrivalled location. So why not book a Burleigh Heads accommodation beachfront to ensure you see these amazing sights and enjoy a lovely holiday.
