Burleigh Heads parking

Parking rules and regulations for Burleigh Heads exist to improve the management of parking in the area. They are a result of findings from the ParkInCentre Schemes trial. The aim of the scheme is to increase vehicle turnover and accessibility within the centre to ensure customers, residents and visitors find it easier to park. This includes the introduction of variable pricing - we review the price of metered parking four times a year, and adjust the price up or down (in increments of 20 cents) to better manage demand.

Parking measures and charges in Burleigh Heads apply every day from 9am to 5pm, including on public holidays.

Free parking

  • There are over 430 free and untimed spaces along the beachfront between First Avenue and Kelly Avenue.
  • Parking in Justins Park Carpark is free. You can park there for a maximum of three hours between 9am and 5pm. Parking is unrestricted outside these hours.
  • Timed parking (free, parking for a maximum of three hours) is available along the Esplanade from First Avenue to Gold Coast Highway, and on Goodwin Terrace From Rudd Park to Burleigh Headland.

Changes are coming to the way parking is managed in the Burleigh Heads Village and beachfront. For more information visit Local area parking changes.
