Starting from the car park off Goodwin Terrace, Burleigh Heads, this walk takes you on a circuit in the Burleigh Head National Park, visiting a couple of beaches and lookouts along the way. Prepared to be blown away by the amazing views over the headland and the Coral Sea, with a chance of seeing a gorgeous whale breach through the water. You’ll be passing by Echo Beach and other swimming areas as you hike on the Oceanview Track, so pack your swimmers and enjoy the lovely waters of Coral Sea. Kookaburras, king parrots and noisy pittas are among the bird species you can spot in the area along with the fellow brushturkeys of Australia. Savor the views and be patient as you observe the waters from the Tumgun and Jebbribillum lookouts to increase your chance of seeing a humpback in the air. There is a restaurant nearby for you to refuel your energy, grab something you can consume at the lookout(without littering ofc) to help you spend time there. The undulating wide tracks are perfectly suitable for small children as well, so don’t hesitate to bring your whole family for a lovely coastal trip together. Try to avoid peak hours and weekends as the track is quite popular amongst runner groups and tourists. Remember to keep an eye out for snakes along the track. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
