If you prefer to stay on land, take a stroll over the bridge that crosses over the creek at the coast and explore the Burleigh Heads National Park. Here you can immerse yourself in lush rainforests and discover the Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Keep an eye out for resident koalas along the way.

Tallebudgera Creek Beach is undoubtedly one of the safest swimming beaches for young children – the waters here are calm, turquoise, and tropical which allows parents to safely swim with their young children without having to brace for the next wave to hit them. For the surfers though, the more exposed beach break has fairly consistent surf, especially in the winter months.

And for golfers, the picturesque Tallebudgera 18-hole golf course is a must visit.
