Terms and Conditions for Online Bookings

What to Expect on a Jellurgal Tour

1. Park features

Within Burleigh Head National Park, you will see a range of environments, flora and fauna on display. The tracks take you from eucalypt forest to pandanus groves, grasslands and rainforest areas as well as weaving along the ocean shoreline and beaches.

On your tour you may see koalas high up in the trees, lizards such as water dragons and bluetongues scurrying through the leaves, birds of prey flying above the mountain and from the lookouts you may even glimpse humpback whales migrating in winter.

2. What to bring

We recommend flat shoes suitable for walking, a hat, sunscreen and a bottle of water for the walking track tour.

You may want to bring swimming attire and towels for a swim at the picturesque Tallebudgera Creek after the tour. A lifeguard-patrolled beach is located a short walk from the centre.

3. Wheelchair and pram accessibility

The Oceanview track offers limited wheelchair and pram assisted access.

4. Suitability for children

Pram assisted access is possible on the Oceanview track. The track is suitable for most children aged 3 and up. You will be required to keep within arm's reach of small children at all times and be wary of uneven tracks, unstable ground or steep drop offs. 

5. Difficulty

The Oceanview track makes its way along the coastline leading from Tallebudgera Creek around to Burleigh Point. 

The track is 1.2km one-way and a 'Grade 2' walk, meaning that the track is a hardened surface with gentle hill sections and occasional steps. No bushwalking experience is required and wheelchair assisted and pram assisted access is possible.

6. Weather and changes to the tour

The Gold Coast averages 245 days of clear and sunny weather throughout the year and maintains a warm sub-tropical climate during most seasons with an average of 20-28°C in summer and 11-21°C in winter. Walking Jellurgal in summer months can be quite warm but the rainforest areas can offer a cool escape. Our guides will monitor the heat conditions and alter the tour accordingly if required.

At the very top of Jellurgal, large hexagonal columns of rock and boulders can be seen scattered down the slope. The movement of these boulders is an ongoing natural geological process and there is at times a risk of rockfall during severe weather. For the safety of visitors, the state government Department of Environment and Science will sometimes close a section of the Oceanview walking track during periods of increased risk. This can be before, during or after conditions of high winds, high rainfall, low temperature or fire. If this section of track is closed, your Jellurgal tour will be altered to avoid this area.

7. Looking after Jellurgal

The 'Dreaming Mountain', Jellurgal, is a beautiful place and we would like to keep it that way. We ask that you help protect the area by:

  • leaving all plants and animals undisturbed, please do not feed the wildife
  • leaving pets at home
  • taking your rubbish away with you
  • staying on the designated tracks
