About Burnett Heads

Sail back in time and visit the old Burnett Heads Lighthouse which dates back to 1873 and is recognised by the National Trust as an important part of Australia’s maritime history.

The mighty Burnett River, which measures some 435km long, flows out to sea at Burnett Heads which is also home to an historic lighthouse. Taken out of service in 1972, the lighthouse was moved to its present site next to Burnett Heads Hall and is a poignant reminder of maritime history in the region, as well as a great subject for photographs. You’ll also find a café and clothing shop, a few good pubs and some small stores to choose from in Burnett heads which is home to hotel/motels and self-contained accommodation.
