Burnett Heads to Oaks Beach

"Southern gateway to the Great Barrier Reef"
Walk to the marina from any point along the coastal pathway or simply enjoy the fantastic views of the Burnett River

Burnett Heads Lighthouse
Take in the historical significance of the South Head Lighthouse- originally built in 1873, retired in 1971 and relocated in one piece for preservation to Lighthouse Park. The new Burnett Heads Lighthouse is one of two Australian Cospas Sarat satellite ground receiver stations.

The Burnett Heritage Trail winds from Oaks Beach via the former Burnett Heads Pilot Station Reserve, to take in both the original South Head Lighthouse and the new taller, automatic Lighthouse. This walk showcases the significant role that our region played in maritime progression. En route you may wish to stop for a while and enjoy the South Head Parklands sports and recreation hub.
