Access to modern waterfront living has entrenched Burleigh Water’s popularity with owner-occupiers attracted to a relaxed beachfront lifestyle with access to good infrastructure. With pristine surfing beaches at adjacent Burleigh Heads and proximity to modern conveniences, Burleigh Waters draws buyers of all ages and budgets. The homes in Burleigh Waters that are closer to the beach are considered older than those further inland. This has resulted in many properties in this area being renovated. In general Burleigh Waters is a mixture of homes that are brand new, 5 years or even 25 years old.
The suburb offers residents and holiday-makers the conveniences of city living in a relaxed environment. Locals have access to all the attractions of the tourist strip, plus the Burleigh Koala Park, Burleigh Heads National Park, Gold Coast Burleigh Golf Club and sports complex and an Aussie Rules Football Club. Retail facilities can be found in the Burleigh Town Marketplace and at two of the Coast’s largest shopping centres, Robina Shopping Centre and Pacific Fair, which are only minutes away.
In addition, Burleigh has a large inland lake that offers excellent fishing and the opportunity to take part in a range of water sports including kayaking and water skiing. Burleigh Heads National Park and Tallebudgera Creek are located at the south end of the beach, and has a walking circuit with wildlife. There are also a range of sporting clubs including two surf lifesaving clubs, the Burleigh Bear Rugby League Club and the Burleigh Boomers AFL Club. The growing number of families in the area is well catered for with both private and public schools, including the Marymount Catholic College and Caningeraba Primary School.
