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!

We love this beach. It's so family friendly and easy to get to and the best bit is it is relatively safe.

A great location for families especially on big surf days. Protected and patrolled beach for children but very busy weekends and holidays.

Great spot for a swim 🏊‍♂️ although quite crowded on weekends and holidays, so parking is limited. Has toilet changing rooms and a small kids park. Often see people jumping off the bridge & paddle boarders. Usually has a lifeguard on duty.

Not on the beach where the lifeguards patrol but further inside the creek along parts of Murlong Crescent or Awoonga Ave are ok
