Indigenous Australians possessed the zone of Burleigh Heads for a large number of years before European settlement. The Indigenous clan were known as the Kombumerri group, who had named the zone 'Jellurgal'. In 1840, James Warner was appointed to overview the coastline close Moreton Bay. Warner named the headlands close Tallebudgera Creek, 'Stout Head' in view of its monstrous appearance. Decades later the name was adjusted to the more respectable spelling of 'Burleigh Heads' and was announced a town hold by the Queensland Government in 1871.
