Tallebudgera Creek is a large creek on the Gold Coast which runs from the Springbrook Plateau in the west through Tallebudgera Valley to the southern slopes of Burleigh Mountain at Burleigh Heads and the Pacific Ocean in the east. Its water catchment is narrow at about 30 kilometres (19 mi) in length.
Tallebudgera Creek is known for good fishing, and its name even translates in indigenous language to "good fishing". Bream, flathead, whiting and the bull shark are common species that are found in the creek.
As well as the main creek there is an extensive canal system, whose shores boast some of the Gold Coast's best housing. It is one of the Gold Coast's three main canal and creek systems, alongside the slightly smaller Currumbin Creek to the south and the much larger Nerang River to the north.
The Tallebudgera Creek Dam was constructed on the creek in the 1950s.
