Wide variety of homes available in famous beach surroundings
Heads is recognised as an excellent
location for beach and nature
activities, and as such has enforced its
reputation among home owners who are
interested in these pastimes. Like its
sister suburb, Burleigh Waters, Burleigh
Heads has a wide variety of property,
including older houses, new and
renovated houses, and an increasing
number of high-rise and mid-rise
Waterfront views are found throughout
the area, particularly in apartment
complexes and from prestige areas on the
hill above the heads. This area is
becoming an increasingly popular holiday
destination and is attracting younger
and more metropolitan clientele.
The suburb offers residents and holiday-makers the conveniences of city living in a relaxed environment. Locals have access to all the attractions of the tourist strip, plus the Burleigh Koala Park, Burleigh Heads National Park, Gold Coast Burleigh Golf Club and sports complex and an Aussie Rules Football Club. Retail facilities can be found in the Burleigh Town Marketplace and at two of the Coast's largest shopping centres, Robina Shopping Centre and Pacific Fair, which are only minutes away.
In addition, Burleigh has a large inland lake that offers excellent fishing and the opportunity to take part in a range of water sports including kayaking and water skiing. Burleigh Heads National Park and Tallebudgera Creek are located at the south end of the beach, and has a walking circuit with abundant wildlife. There are also a range of sporting clubs including two surf lifesaving clubs, the Burleigh Bear Rugby League Club and the Burleigh Boomers AFL Club.
The growing number of families in the area is well catered for with both private and public schools, including the Marymount Catholic College, Caningeraba Primary School and Burleigh Heads Primary School.
