  • Have lived on the coast 25 yrs and finally went to check it out. Lots of locals were running this track but not me. A few well made paths looping around this small Nat Park, not too steep, nice view f...  more »
  • As the walk to this lookout is near the beach, parking can be a bit of an issue on beach days. It's quite an easy walk and there were others doing it while we were there. Apart from the views we saw m...  more »

  • A nice little walk around / over the headland depending on your walking ability. If your not so physically able, the walk around is lovely and relaxed with alot of plant life and views of the ocean. If you are able to , I recommend going over the top , because the views toward Burleigh or toward tallebudgera are excellent.
  • Was just about to give up on the trip to Burleigh National Park because of the rather heavy showers but soooooo glad we hadn’t!!!!! The view was phenomenal. We didn’t get to complete the Rainforest track tour of the Burleigh but I would recommend it!
  • Tumgum Lookout is on one of the three walking tracks between Tallebudgera Creek and south end of Burleigh Heads. Take the track over the top of Big Burleigh (no car access). Well maintained walking track, but in some places there are 2 or 3 steps so not good for wheelchairs or prams (the low track that doesn't go up to the high lookout is more suitable, and has a lovely spot where you can sit and watch the waves rolling in to Burleigh Heads beach. The lower track is a shorter and cooler way to walk round to Tallebudgera). There is a koala colony on Big Burleigh but I haven't spotted one there any of the many times I have walked the tracks. You will see and hear scrub turkeys as there are plenty of them in the national park on Big Burleigh. As inviting as the waters of Tallebudgera Creek may look from the walkways it is not safe to swim in the creek due to the strong current; there is good swimming at Burleigh Heads beach (patrolled beach) and the beach south of the creek also has a patrolled area. In case you are wondering there is a Little Burleigh at the northern end of Burleigh Heads beach. It is smaller, doesn't have as much vegetation on it, and has an unmanned weather station. It is a lovely walk from Big Burleigh to Little Burleigh - if you have the the time, as it is a long beach - along the way you will see Burleigh Heads-Mowbray Park surf life savers, and North Burleigh surf life savers - each end of the beach.
  • Great bush walk, amazing views. Would recommend if you're in the area
  • The place has beautiful oceanic view. Ideal for watching sunsets and sun risings.
