A BETTER LIFESTYLE
The Northern Gold Coast region encompassing Labrador, Parkwood, Arundel, Biggera Waters, Runaway Bay, Hollywell, Coombabah, Paradise Point, Helensvale, Gaven, Monterey Keys, Hope Island, Sanctuary Cove, Oxenford and Coomera – is just simply superb and ideally located South of Brisbane and North of Surfers Paradise with easy commuter access to both. Indeed a delightful place to live, work and play.
There are many beach / broadwater locations ideally suited for swimming / family picnics / watersport, or simply enjoying the outdoors.
Currently the sixth largest city in Australia and one of the fastest growing regions for the past 30 years, the Gold Coast has a population of 507,439* which swells by an average of 100,000 visitors on any one day. The growth rate is approximately 6% per annum.
Perhaps one of the best climates on earth! With an average of 300 days of sunshine each year, this subtropical climate is perfect for just about everyone to enjoy all that the city has to offer. The average summer temperatures are between 19-29 degrees Celsius and in winter between 9-21 degrees Celsius.
The Gold Coast is linked to Brisbane by rail. Four stations with ample parking are conveniently located at Ormeau, Coomera, Helensvale and Nerang for commuting residents. Local transport includes a bus service and a large taxi fleet.
