burleigh sunset

 

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.
