If it's daylight, it's packed! Tallebudgera Creek is very popular for a swim. Salt water and tidal, you can swim across to the other side and walk around a very scenic point, Burleigh Headlands National Park.

Great for a stroll - you can fish, fish watch, bird watch, and people watch. There are always those out on kayaks and the like in the calm blue waters.The elevated board walk portion is a great place to avoid the sand of the beach.

Tallebudgera is a great place for family days out. Great fishing, swimming, beaches, picnicking and walks. A hidden gem! really a special part of Queensland's Gold Coast near Surfers Paradise. Must visit spot!
