    Walk the coast.
    This is a must do walk when in Burleigh. This walk is equipped for all ages prams walkers and offers great views of the coastline. Keep your eye open for the whales and enjoy. The walkway is well maintained and is closed when winds and rain is expected. Listen to the birds watch for wildlife and read about the local aboriginal communities

    A lovely stroll
    We decided,with no notice, to visit this national park. The parking areas approaching were packed, but we got a spot right at the top of the dead end street next to the park. Good information board with the various walks explained. We did a mixture of the walks, great views, beautiful views and lots of birds to listen to. We'll worth the visit. Very accessible paths, especially the coastal track one

    Easy walk for kids
    Walked to the 2nd lookout from the Northern carpark. The free carpark closest to the starting point so we used the paid parking on Goodwin Terrace, 90c per 30 mins, and the inspectors were out checking! My 4yo and 6yo managed the walk just fine, including over 100 steps. The first lookout is pretty obstructed by trees so we continued up the hill to the 2nd. People come here for whale watching but it was too overcast for us to see much.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The lower track around the entire park is an easy walk with plenty of room for hikers and cyclists. The pathways are very well maintained and access to the various vantage points was easy. Everything is signposted and easy to find.

Small as far as National Parks are concerned.
Nice views from several vantage points.
Limited wildlife.
Living within five minutes we have made this our daily walk.
Different walks with differing exercise potential.
Gets a bit crowded on the weekends, week days are better value.

We had a very pleasant walk in this park. Starting at the Burleigh Heads side, we walked along Oceanview Track to Tallebudgera Creek and then returned via lower track on the Rainforest Circuit. Paused for a while to watch whales which was a bonus. Well maintained and bitumen so easy walking.

A lovely walk from Burleigh Heads to Palm Beach (and back) - very scenic and shadey in parts. Plenty of lizards to see along the track. We stopped off at Palm Beach to take in the scenery and water activities.

I started my walk by the creek then I went up to the lookout. The views are worth the walk. It is quiet steep. Then I came back down the same way and continued around the coastline to the Burleigh Heads entrance. This is a nice way to spend a couple of hours.

Short nice walk along the coast with beautiful views. Carparks available and makes it very accessible. View the tall buildings of surfer's paradise from afar. Easy walk for most.

It took us a while to figure out where is the place to park. We eventually parked at the parking lot at the junction of Hayle St & Goodwin Terrace. We did the Ocean View Lookout track and covered the circuit in about an hour. Very nice and leisurely walk and with fantastic view of the place.
