This is the perfect place for a family gathering. Lots of space to spread out and have a picnic. Ideally located just across the road from the Burleigh Headland. Tip make sure you get there early to get the best spot

Very beautiful, serene, watching the waves, surfers and people in general. Great place to relax. Lack of parking. We caught public transport, picnic and enjoyed.

BBQ's are available with sheltered tables for that picnic, family get together or celebration. Right on the beach with brilliant views and such a clean area with facilities close by and parking! We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon with family, friends, swimming, eating and laughing!

Situated between the village and the ocean provides very good picnic facilities with toilet's. Well cared for by the council this heavily used facility is a asset to Burleigh Heads. Great family spot over the New Year holidays 2016
