Burleigh Heads is one of the suburbs of the Gold Coast and is famous the world over for the surf breaks. This is a hotspot for surfers although it is also considered as a great destination for family holidaymakers. Burleigh Heads has several other attractions apart from the beach and this makes it a highly recommended destination for a family holiday.
At the centre of Burleigh Heads is the most famous James Street, which is a small city in itself and this where you will find most hotels, restaurants, and cafes. James Street is also the shopping district. But of course, you have not flown across half the world to simply amble on James Street; so what else does Burleigh Heads has to offer?
Burleigh Heads has the Miami Beach in the north and the Tallebudgera Creek and Palm Beach in the south. For Australians, this is the place for weekend barbeques, lots of surfing, and cricket on the beach. You can visit the beaches in Burleigh Heads to soak in the sun, lay there lazily while watching a beach cricket session in progress or just venture out for a thrilling session of body boarding and surfing. The beaches here are quite safe for swimming as well.
The hottest attraction for families is the Burleigh Head National Park, which offers great views of the Burleigh Head coast and the forest area. It is a great place for hiking, walking or jogging. If you are looking for something different then head straight for the Tweed Vocano, which has not been active in almost 3 million years but has led to the formation of Burleigh headland.
Burleigh Heads also offers several types of accommodation for families like self-service apartments, sea facing resorts, and hotels. Once you are in Burleigh Heads, you would only wish that your holiday lasts forever!
