Burleigh HeadsGold Coast Suburb Profile

South from the bustling suburbs of Surfers and Broadbeach lies the family friendly suburb of Burleigh Heads. Known for its laid back atmosphere, Burleigh is home to the Gold Coast’s best beaches, stacks of family friendly areas including local markets, BBQ and picnic areas along the beachfront promenade, and a beautiful national park with walking trails.

The beachy and relaxed environment is one that is much loved by locals in general as well as those who call Burleigh home, making it a very popular weekend and holiday spot. Stretching from the Miami Headland to Tallebudgera, Burleigh was recently honoured as the Gold Coast’s best beach in 2012, however due to “The Point”, Burleigh has always been a popular surfing destination, and is even home to the Burleigh Breaka Pro surfing champs.

Burleigh isn’t just a sleepy town though, head west and you’ll find a major shopping district and industrial hub, with numerous manufacturing, mechanical, wholesale and engineering business.
