Oceanview Walk, Burleigh Head National Park

Enjoy scenic ocean views and discover where ancient volcanic columns meet the sea on this easy walk through Burleigh Head National Park.

Summary

Ancient volcanic columns meet the sea on this easy stroll in Burleigh Head National Park in the heart of the Gold Coast.

The Oceanview track skirts the coastline leading around the rocky headland from the southern edge of Burleigh Heads township to the southern [park entrance near Tallebudgera Creek.

Pack a picnic and relax by the creek at Echo Beach and marvel at the tumbled masses of six sided basalt columns. Spot whales (during winter and spring), white-bellied sea-eagles and birdwing butterflies (in summer).

Allow 30 minutes from the rocky headland at Tallebudgera Creek to walk the track through pandanus groves, tussock grasslands, coastal heath and mangroves to southern Burleigh. You can either return by the same path or via the Rainforest circuit and Tumgun lookout.

For your safety, a section of Oceanview walk may be temporarily closed before, during and after severe weather, due to the increased risk of rock falls. Check Park Alerts for track closures. For your safety, please observe the DANGER boulder fall zone restricted access area sign and remain on the walking track. Access is not permitted to the boulder fields, including Cannon Rock, or the steep slopes between the Oceanview track and the boulder fields—penalties apply.
