Burleigh Heads History and Nature Walks

Beautiful Burleigh Heads has been a popular holiday destination from as far back as 1883 when the first Tourist hotel opened its doors overlooking the ocean. A lot has changed since then so join us for a guided History and Nature Walk at Burleigh Heads. Along the walk you will view old photos from the early 1900s, hear about the life and times of the early settlers and learn about the natural history of the area.
