Burleigh Waters Accommodation
Queensland holidays along the Gold Coast are popular choices for many travellers. Choosing Burleigh Waters holiday rentals instead of a hotel makes a holiday more relaxing and enjoyable. Most rentals are larger homes with spacious floor plans. Some rest along the many canals in the area while others are only walking distance to the nearby beaches. Manicured landscapes and towering trees provide nice surroundings for a holiday home.
Why Choose Burleigh Waters?
This community is small and residential. Only about an hour's drive southeast of Brisbane, Burleigh Waters is within driving distance of most Gold Coast attractions. The farthest point from the ocean is less than three kilometers, a distance easily walked. Surrounded by canals and lakes such as Pelican, Burleigh, and Swan, visitors are sure to find boating and fishing opportunities abound.
Burleigh Head National Park
This seaside park is for travellers seeking a rugged, natural experience. There are no facilities or cleared trails, but guests are welcome to bring picnic meals and explore the bush. Located on a headland, this park's environments range from rocky foreshore to rainforest. While exploring in the bush, it's not uncommon to be greeted by wildlife and whales frequent the water during season.
Tallebudgera Tourist Park
This tranquil, conservation park features ample walking trails ranging from easy to challenging. The abundant wildlife found here make this a 'great park for families.' Visitors will enjoy various water sports including canoeing, kayaking, boating, and skiing, as well as, swimming and windsurfing. There are plentiful areas for fishing as well.
David Fleay's Wildlife Park
This park is really more of a zoo providing natural habitat enclosures for its many animals. There are lizards, snakes, crocodiles, birds, and gliders. Several native Australian species like kangaroos, tree kangaroos, wombats, platypus, and koalas call this park home. To enhance their experience, kids ages 8 - 14 can participate in a workshop where they learn 'How to be a Wildlife Ranger.' Kids will learn to care for the animals by feeding and handling them and cleaning their enclosures.
For a different approach to history, consider visiting Paradise Country where the past comes to life every day. Home to goats, sheep, cows, kangaroos, horses, koalas, and donkeys this attraction is much like a farm. Watch as sheep dogs herd cattle to and fro before witnessing a sheep shearing. Visitors will enjoy gold fossicking, or gold panning, and opal mining, where hidden treasures wait. All miners and panners leave with something.
Holiday Living At Its Finest
Choosing a holiday rental for Gold Coast accommodation has many advantages. Guests will save money on meals by using the fully equipped kitchen. Visitors will enjoy peaceful, restful nights due to lack of nearby neighbors and separate sleeping quarters. Private yards and pools keep children safe. There are no crowds or lines at a private rental. Choosing holiday rentals makes for a more relaxing, enjoyable holiday.
