Why not take the kids for a day hike, the secret is to plan… if they get tired you can always entice them with a swim or maybe lunch at Burleigh Village or West Burleigh. The best thing is that most of these walks providing you plan ahead are on or near bus routes. Always have an exit plan for those who don’t feel the same enthusiasm, food or a drink stop is the best approach.

  1. Burleigh is the BEST for walking around! It’s like a little piece of heaven that pokes out into the ocean where we can escape the rest of the Coast, love it!

  2. […] Walk down the asphalt driveway and to your left onto a mowed grassed area and beautiful views of Springbrook Plateau, the day I was there the Japanese sunflowers Tithonia diversifolia (they are a weed) framed the photo beautifully. George Street offers some stunning views of the northern Gold Coast, if you have the right camera with a telescopic lens you can capture a different perspective of the Gold Coast.

  3. I take groups of children on ‘Natural Adventures’ in Burleigh Heads National Park. Im continually amazed by the majestic wilderness so close to urban society. Pristine ocean, tidal rockpools and sub-tropical rainforest all within continual sight. There are so many natural discoveries each child makes on these walks, you can see their eyes widen in amazement and delight. We are very blessed to have these walks in our backyard.

  4. We are from Tasmania and this is our 3rd winter in beautiful QLD. We have done all the local walks numerous times and loved them all with Tallebudgera Creek round trip our favourite.

    • Thank you Carolyn, I love to hear from people, sorry if I was a little slow to answer. The Tallebudgera Loop is one of my favourites too, I love those timber bridges on the way to David Fleay’s.
