Climb the Skypoint Observation Deck

Just a 6-minute drive from Dorsett Gold Coast is the iconic Skypoint Observation Deck. Towering 270m tall, it takes you 77 floors above the ground. At the top, you’re greeted with a 360-degree panoramic view of the coast and beyond - along with the highest bistro and bar on the Gold Coast.

For those after something a little more adventurous, the SkyPoint Climb doesn’t fail to deliver. Head outside on floor 77 to take part in the highest external climb in Australia, ascending to the Eagles Nest at the top of the building. The SkyPoint Twilight Climb is by far the best if you want to watch the sunset over the ocean in style.

Burleigh Head National Park

The Gold Coast is home to some of the most beautiful National Parks in the state. The nearby Burleigh Head National Park, less than a 20-minute drive from the hotel, has a well-renowned, scenic oceanview walk that is sure to be a highlight of your stay.

The track hugs the coastline and starts at the southern end of Burleigh Heads, wrapping around the rocky headland and reaching Tallebudgera Creek on the other side. With two walking tracks to choose from, there is ample opportunity to explore a world of eucalyptus trees, bush rainforests and beautiful secluded beaches. Take the time to stop and marvel at the tumbled masses of six-sided basalt columns or sit back and relax on Echo Beach. With a number of lookout points along the way, there are many places to take a breather and capture some beautiful scenic shots.

Burleigh Hill is the ideal location to catch sunset (we suggest packing a blanket and picnic!) and where you will find many locals and tourists alike settling in to enjoy the evening with drinks and snacks. It truly is a magical setting!
