Tallebudgera is best known for its sparkling creek which is framed by the Burleigh Heads National Park on one side and Palm Beach on the other. Tallebudgera Creek is the focal point for any visit to Tallebudgera where the lifestyle is all about camping, swimming, picnicking, kayaking and a spot of fishing or two.

So popular is the campground here that generations of families return each summer to claim their favourite spot at the Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park which is perched on the edge of this estuary. Tallebudgera Creek offers a protected beach area suitable for all kinds of active water sports such as stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking. The creek is a popular, calm water place for families.

Surfing

While the waters in the creek are renowned for their relative calm, those seeking surf need only walk to nearby Tallebudgera Beach for a few waves.

Swimming

Tallebudgera Creek is known for its calm waters making it an ideal place for families with young kids to come and enjoy the ocean waters. Make sure you swim between the red and yellow flags which indicate that the beach is patrolled. Tallebudgera Creek has a patrolled lifeguard tower at Gold Coast Highway at Tallebudgera Creek (beach side). The tower is patrolled between 8am and 5pm every day from November to April.
