Step into a coastal forest and wildlife habitat

This place, Burleigh Heads is so very special. It is not uncommon to see cars give way to an Australian Brush Turkey that has wandered inquisitively from within the southern headland parklands. This unique habitat is also home to flying foxes, gliders, sea eagles and over 50 other bird species. The Ocean View walking track delivers you to the southern side where you can cool off in the Tallebudgera Creek and along the way, you can see the Lace Monitor community shading under mangrove trees. The possum community includes 3 possum varieties and echidnas are also found in this habitat.

This parkland is quite diverse, with fringing mangroves along the creek, and windswept tussock grassland, open forest, rainforest and coastal vegetation around the headland. On the tracks you move between rainforest, eucalypt forest, brush box, ironbark, bloodwood and forest red gum trees.
