Burrum Heads offers the ultimate in beachfront tranquillity while its calm blue waters provide excellent opportunities for fishing, canoeing, boating and safe swimming. Burrum Heads is nestled in the southern entrance of the mouth of the Burrum River with views across to Hervey Bay and the top end of Fraser Island. Pitch the tent or park the caravan at one of two waterfront caravan parks or rent one of the many holiday houses. The waterways are teaming with marine life, while more than 90 species of birds inhabit the area. Fishing is Burrum Heads’ main attraction. The Burrum River’s extensive sand flats, channels and mangrove-lined banks create perfect conditions for fishing, crabbing and prawning. Bordering Burrum Heads is the Burrum Coast National Park, with mangrove-lined riverbanks, wallum heath with spectacular wildflowers and tea tree-dominated swamps.
