If you love good art and the ocean, you’ll love Sean Scott – he is one of Australia’s most well known photographers and has a gallery located on James Street in Burleigh Heads. The gallery is open 7 days a week and stocks a large range of his artwork. Whether you are looking for a unique memento of your Gold Coast holiday or just want to be able to have one of his stunning photographs in your house, you’ll find something to love.
No budget is too big or small as they offer everything from photos in high definition on glass down to small canvas art prints – you’ll find it all – or just spend some time wandering around admiring his skills.
The 2018 Burleigh Pro is fast approaching. This four day event will run between January 25th-28th and attracts some of the best surfers in the world. Competitors here are battling it out for points to get into the World Surf League Qualifying Series – so you know the competition will be fierce.
Burleigh Heads is the best spot to watch all the action as the headland acts like a natural amphitheatre – it does get busy though so make sure you get there early or be prepared to walk a little. Bring a blanket, a picnic and settle under a tree to watch all the action.
Holidays are for doing something different, so why not take a jewellery class with The Jewellery Studio. Not only do the sell beautiful hand crafted pieces, they also run small workshops and private classes.
You’ll walk away with a beautiful piece or two you’ve created yourself and the memories to match. Classes are by appointment only, so if this sounds like something you want to do you’ll want to reach out early to make sure they have room for you. For more information head to their website and send them a quick email: http://thejewellerystudio.com.au/
Sunsets at Burleigh Headland are not something you want to miss while you’re here. So why not do as the locals do, grab some fish and chips from one of the local shops – grab a spot on the headland and enjoy the sunset to the sound of the lorikeets.
It is a popular spot on the weekends, so if you want a bit more quiet – head there on a week day evening for a little more privacy as you take in the views of the entire Gold Coast coastline.
