Terms and Conditions for Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre

Terms and Conditions

Trading as Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre 

What to Expect on a Jellurgal Tour 

  1. Park features 

Within Burleigh Head National Park, you will see a range of environments, flora  and fauna on display. The tracks take you from eucalypt forest to pandanus groves,  grasslands and rainforest areas as well as weaving along the ocean shoreline and  beaches. 

On your tour you may see koalas high up in the trees, lizards such as water dragons and bluetongues scurrying through the leaves, birds of prey flying above the  mountain and from the lookouts you may even glimpse humpback whales  migrating in winter. 

  1. What to bring 

We recommend flat shoes suitable for walking, a hat, sunscreen and a bottle of  water for the walking track tour. 

You may want to bring swimming attire and towels for a swim at the picturesque  Tallebudgera Creek after the tour. A lifeguard-patrolled beach is located a short  walk from the centre. 

  1. Wheelchair and pram accessibility 

The Oceanview track offers limited wheelchair and pram assisted access.

4. Suitability for children 

Pram assisted access is possible on the Oceanview track. The track is suitable for  most children aged 3 and up. You will be required to keep within arm's reach of  small children at all times and be wary of uneven tracks, unstable ground or steep  drop offs. 

  1. Difficulty 

The Oceanview track makes its way along the coastline leading from Tallebudgera  Creek around to Burleigh Point.

The track is 1.2km one-way and a 'Grade 2' walk, meaning that the track is a  hardened surface with gentle hill sections and occasional steps. No bushwalking  experience is required and wheelchair assisted and pram assisted access is possible. 

  1. Weather and changes to the tour 

The Gold Coast averages 245 days of clear and sunny weather throughout the year  and maintains a warm sub-tropical climate during most seasons with an average  of 20-28°C in summer and 11-21°C in winter. Walking Jellurgal in summer  months can be quite warm but the rainforest areas can offer a cool escape. Our  guides will monitor the heat conditions and alter the tour accordingly if required. 

At the very top of Jellurgal, large hexagonal columns of rock and boulders can be  seen scattered down the slope. The movement of these boulders is an ongoing  natural geological process and there is at times a risk of rockfall during severe  weather. For the safety of visitors, the state government Department of  Environment and Science will sometimes close a section of the Oceanview  walking track during periods of increased risk. This can be before, during or after  conditions of high winds, high rainfall, low temperature or fire. If this section of  track is closed, your Jellurgal tour will be altered to avoid this area. 

  1. Looking after Jellurgal 

The 'Dreaming Mountain', Jellurgal, is a beautiful place and we would like to keep  it that way. We ask that you help protect the area by: 

  • leaving all plants and animals undisturbed, please do not feed the wildife leaving pets at home 
  • taking your rubbish away with you 
  • staying on the designated tracks
