Posted in Location & Attractions @ Nov 7th 2015 1:48pm - By Administrator

Ever heard of the term Biophilia Hypothesis? It is the term that suggests that we are instinctively urged to seek connection with other forms of life. That’s why if you have been wondering why you want to be with nature almost all the time, it is because it is etched in ourselves as human beings to be amongst other living things.

If you’ve been craving to be with nature lately, you can do it and be extremely satisfied on your trip to Burleigh Heads.   
Just 90 kilometres south of Brisbane is where you’ll find the entrance to a famous Gold Coast landmark called Burleigh Heads National Park. With its exact starting point at Goodwin Terrace, you’ll uncover tons of treasures in the guise of nature’s bests such as eucalypt forest, rainforest, tussock grassland, pandanus groves, mangroves, coastal heath, creeks, rocky foreshore, and beaches.

During the whale watching season, you can even catch sight of humpback whales playing in the coastal waters—the park is an ideal place to watch them. There are also the white bellied sea eagles in ridge updrafts and birdwing butterflies on site so there’s always something to watch out of in this park.  

Although camping is not allowed in the park, there’s a council picnic area and toilets near its northern entrance so you can eat and have fun with your mates amidst nature.  

Graded walking tracks are located in specific areas that will give you easy access to the best features of the park. Classified according to the Australian standards, the trekking paths here are in Class 3, meaning that though the tracks are well defined with gentle slopes and slight inclines, medium level of fitness is required for this and ankle supporting footwear is a must for a comfortable walk.

Take the Oceanview walk and for 30 minutes you’ll trek along the coastline that leads to the rocky headland from Tallebudgera Creek to Burleigh Heads towndship in the southern edge.

Then take the Rainforest circuit, a 45 minute average walking time, and you’ll be led to where there’s a wonderful spot for watching whales, or even simply appreciating the pristine and calming ocean.
