Great walking track to experience this beautiful headland. Majestic trees, wildlife and glorious vistas make this a delightful journey. It's an easy walk and can get busy, but a must do for every visitor.

We have been to Surfers many times and try and do different activities each visit. This was our first time at Burleigh Heads and the walks were great. We ended on the beach at the rockpools and the whole family loved it.

Nice and comfortable hike for young children. Beautiful scenery, good signage and pathway. Great scenery and lookout points. There are spots where the uphill / downhill slope may be strenuous for elderly.

Spend an hour or less to complete an easy walk beside the ocean. Spot some birds and have a great city view
