Pastry and Coffee


For a delightful breakfast or brunch experience, head to Paddock Bakery. This charming spot is renowned for its artisanal pastries, freshly brewed coffee, and relaxed ambiance. Don't miss their signature dishes and delectable baked goods like seasonal-flavoured cruffins, creme brulee doughnuts, and jumbo gooey-centred cookies. Another one of Burleigh's culinary gems is Miami Marketta, a lively market offering a diverse range of international cuisines. From mouthwatering street food to gourmet delights, this foodie hub is perfect for a flavourful evening out when you don’t feel like cooking or when you have a crowd of eclectic tastes to please.



For a sunny day out of retail therapy, make your way to James Street. This bustling thoroughfare features trendy boutiques, designer stores, art galleries, and lifestyle shops. Overhaul your wardrobe to complement your new sleek seaside neighbourhood with a shopping spree at the likes of Saint Harlowe, The Freedom State, Dore Burleigh, and Kivari. Contemporary surf brand Rhythm will have you dressed the part during your downtime days spent by the beach. Complete your new look with Emte’s range of signature accessories and luxe leather goods; and add your own personal touches to your prize home with the help of the chic homewares collections at Miso Miso, Emporium on James, and Maison & Maison.


Get to know your local area better from those who have been calling Burleigh home for centuries before you. Delve into the rich Indigenous heritage of the region at Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre. It’s Gold Coast's only dedicated Aboriginal cultural centre and is fully owned and operated by the local Aboriginal community. Experience guided tours along a picturesque beachside rainforest walkway, listen to traditional storytelling about the Dreamtime giant Jabreen who stood guard over Burleigh, and explore art exhibitions and cultural workshops for an insight into the area's ancient past and spiritual significance.


On weekends, join the lively atmosphere of locals stocking up on fresh produce and vitamin D at the Village Markets. This bustling event showcases local artisans, musicians, food vendors, and handmade crafts on Sundays. It's a fantastic opportunity to mingle with your fellow neighbours, discover unique treasures, and immerse yourself in the community vibe. For a relaxed afternoon with stunning views, you can’t go past Burleigh Pavilion. This beachfront venue is a favourite among locals for its laidback atmosphere, refreshing drinks, and beachside dining. 

Burleigh Beach


Burleigh Beach is sure to call your name from sunrise to sunset when you live locally. Early mornings are the perfect time for a refreshing swim that will wake you up and invigorate you for the day ahead. Stop by to catch some waves during the mid-morning hours or early afternoons when the surf conditions are optimal and the crowds are smaller; opt to squeeze in a relaxing picnic lunch on the beach between surfs. Just because the sun is going down doesn’t mean it’s time to call it a day: take a leisurely stroll along Burleigh Beach’s shoreline at sunset for breathtaking views and serene moments.


Just being in Burleigh is a relaxing experience, however, if you want to take your Zen vibe to the next level, a bathhouse is the place to go. For ultimate relaxation, treat yourself to a spa day at Greenhouse Bathhouse. Indulge in soothing treatments, therapeutic massages, and wellness rituals amidst a tranquil setting. It's the perfect way to unwind and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. 

Alternatively, just roll out of bed and enjoy the serenity of your Mater Prize Home. The calming colour palette throughout, light-drenched and spacious interior, and glistening pool views from almost every angle on the main floor have a way of leaving you feeling relaxed and stress-free from morning to night.
