Burleigh Head National Park

Burleigh Head National Park provides a peaceful haven for wildlife and walkers. Remnants of past volcanic activity, littoral rainforest and reminders of the living culture of the Kombumerri people are protected in this park.


The Kombumerri call the headland “Jellurgal”. In spite of its small size, the park is quite diverse, with fringing mangroves along the creek, and windswept tussock grassland, open forest, rainforest and coastal vegetation around the headland.


The park lies between Burleigh Heads and the Tallebudgera Creek estuary and is about 70 minutes from Brisbane. Access is from the Gold Coast Highway near the Tallebudgera Creek bridge or from Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads.
