School holiday attractions, unmissable free events and whale watching season. Spring on the Gold Coast has never looked more exciting and our Burleigh Heads accommodation won’t disappoint if you’re looking to be right in the heart of all the excitement.

Why Burleigh Beach? Because this stunning central Gold Coast beach will place you near the SWELL Sculpture Festival, the best whale watching lookouts and a whole host of family-friendly attractions to spoil the kids to on their break.

Here at Swell Resort, we offer 1, 2 and 3 bedroom fully self-contained Burleigh Beach apartments, mere footsteps from the beach with a full range of resort facilities. On a budget? No worries – we offer both Standard and Superior apartments to suit your needs.

So, what to look forward to this spring on the Gold Coast? Let’s dive into it.

SWELL Sculpture Festival

SWELL Sculpture Festival is right around the corner but it’s not too late to plan your visit. On Currumbin Beach – and for ten whole days – come by to feast your eyes on a surreal oceanfront gallery of small and large sculptures.

Featuring the work of international, national and local artists, SWELL Sculpture Festival is FREE to attend with lots to marvel at. There are workshops and artist talks, but the main thing is just being there to check out the incredible display.

Sound exciting? Don’t miss it from September 10 to September 19.

Gold Coast School Holiday Attractions and Things to Do

Need some ideas for what to do with the kids this spring? We’ve got you covered. Whether you’re looking to bond on the beach or enjoy a few unforgettable days out – perhaps both – Burleigh Heads offers the best of both worlds.

Kids love animals, and both Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Fleay’s Wildlife Park are located near Burleigh. Up for a kayaking adventure? Head to Currumbin Creek or Tallebudgera Creek. Tallebudgera Creek is right next to Burleigh Head National Park, and it’s another must-visit location for picnics, local wildlife spotting and breath-taking ocean views.

But that’s not all. Take a drive north to explore Surfers Paradise and its famous holiday attractions (SkyPoint, Wax Museum, Sling Shot Fun Park and more), Sea World in Main Beach, or the colossal Gold Coast theme parks Dreamworld, Movie World and Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast.

All in all, you can bet the kids won’t stop talking about it long after the school holiday.

Whale Watching Gold Coast

Ever wanted to see a whale? It’s an experience like no other. And you’re in luck this spring as it’s officially whale watching season on the Gold Coast.

To make sure you don’t miss them, head over before November. You can hop on a whale watching tour (such as Whales in Paradise or Spirit of Gold Coast) or see them for free from the coastline.

Burleigh Heads just so happens to be one of the best locations for free whale watching on the Gold Coast. Just pack a good pair of binoculars and park up at Tumgun Lookout, Burleigh Hill, Jebbribillum Lookout – even the Burleigh Head National Park Ocean Track. Throw a picnic blanket down and simply catch some rays while waiting.
