Burns is joining the Queensland Cup side on a one-year deal.
Love Rugby League broke the news of Burns’ move last week.
Wynnum Manly CEO Hanan Laban said the former Cowboys and Panthers playmaker wants to win a premiership before he retires.
“The last thing he wants to do before finishing playing football is win a title,” Laban told The Courier-Mail.
“Wynnum Manly is considered one of the premier clubs of the competition so we are very disappointed with not making the play-offs this season.
“We recognised the fact that we needed to recruit a player like Travis to provide a new energy and give us every chance of getting back in the top four next year.”
