Burleigh Heads has long been a favourite with families, and it doesn’t matter how old your kids are, they all love to holiday here!

It’s not just the wonderful, adventure-filled play parks dotted along the grassy strip alongside the beach, Burleigh’s three patrolled beach areas and world famous waves make us a winner for a family holiday with a difference.

Introduce your kids to awesome nature by strolling around Burleigh Heads National Park.  Chances are the odd wild turkey, bearded dragon, osprey or kite might cross your path.  Paddle with your little ones in the calm waters of Burleigh’s best-kept secret, Echo Beach on the edge of Tallebudgera Creek.

Ready to get the adrenalin pumping?  Burleigh Heads is on the direct bus route to Australia’s best theme parks.  Watch dolphins perform, zip down water slides or take in an action packed show.  Kids and adults have so much fun!

Burleigh Heads bohemian shopping precinct, ‘The Village’, is a mecca for shopaholics and coffee lovers alike.  Grab a unique purchase, treat your children to a milkshake, kick back and relax.

But the most adored attraction in Burleigh Heads is our fabulous range of family-friendly accommodation.  Parents love our self-contained units, heated pools, safe environments, friendly staff and the chance to meet other families holidaying on the Coast.
