Break away in Burleigh Heads

Burleigh Heads is a small suburb of the world renowned Gold Coast region, located approximately 18km from the Queensland-New South Wales border in Australia. This region is best known for its surfing and beach culture, with international holiday makers flocking to Miami Beach, Mermaid Beach, Broad Beach and the world famous Surfers Paradise to ride the numerous world class surf breaks on offer. The area consequently presents a variety of different accommodation options for travellers, ranging from backpacker accommodation to luxury holiday homes.

Things to See and Do in and Around Burleigh Heads

As surfing plays such a large role in Burleigh Heads, it is not surprising that the area is often host to large, extremely popular international surfing events such as the Quicksilver Pro. Depending on their preference, holiday makers can be in the thick of things and watch such events live from the beach; or do as many of the locals do and catch the highlights in the evening whilst relaxing in their holiday villa drinking an ice cold beer.

More adventurous holiday makers can take advantage of the amazing surf in the area and hit the waves themselves, or for those that are new to the idea of surfing, lesson can be organised at one of the many surf schools located in and around Burleigh Heads. Travellers hitting the beach are however, advised to be sun smart and apply sunscreen before leaving their holiday apartment, as it doesn’t take long to become seriously sunburned in Australia.

Getting Away from Water

Although the surf will most definitely play a large role in any holiday at Burleigh Heads, there is much more to this area than just hanging out at the beach. Burleigh Heads and the surrounding region are home to some of the most spectacular national parks in the country. The closest of these national parks is Burleigh Head National Park, which can be reached on foot from most holiday rentals in the area.

Burleigh Heads National Park is located on the coast directly south of the Burleigh Heads Surf Club, and allows adventurous visitors to wander through sub-tropical rainforest and explore the rocky coastline, with lucky holiday makers being treated to a whale sighting during their walk. For holiday makers looking for something more challenging than a meandering walk along the coast however, there is Mt Warning National Park.

Mt Warning National Park, home to Mt Warning, one of the highest peaks in Australia, is located approximately 60km south of Burleigh Heads in New South Wales. Although this may see like a fair distance to travel from Burleigh Heads, it is well worth the trip. Visitors to Mt Warning National Park are treated to a strenuous 4.4km trek through lush rainforest teaming with native Australian animals, concluding at the summit of Mt Warning, which offers amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape.

Many holiday makers generally choose to begin the Mt Warning hike a few hours before sunrise, as it is said that the summit of Mt Warning is the first place in Australia that you can see the sunrise. Travellers interested in undertaking this hike can consequently head south from their Burleigh Heads accommodation extremely early in the morning, or take advantage of the various holiday rentals in the Mt Warning area.

The Ideal Climate for Visitors

The mild sub-tropical climate experienced in Burleigh Heads makes the region a great holiday destination almost year round, with holiday makers generally being treated to sunny 25°C days. As with most areas in Queensland and Northern New South Wales however, Burleigh Heads does have a tendency to quite warm during the summer months, which generally extend from November to January. The area also tends to get the majority of its annual rainfall during this period.

The upside of this however, is that the holiday accommodation is generally a lot cheaper during the summer months. Travellers willing to take a gamble on the weather can therefore secure themselves a very reasonable luxury summer holiday home for a fraction of the ‘in season’ cost.

Home away from home

We had a great 4 days in this beautiful unit with our two Cavaliers. The unit has everything you need and Hayley was very welcoming. The main bed is a king size and extremely comofortable. I would definitely recommend this property - we had a ball.
