Upper Coomera is a fast growing community at the northern end of the Gold Coast and is one of the city’s strongest growth areas. Upper Coomera has a mix of residential land development as well as pastoral land for dairy and cattle farming and crop growing. Coomera Waters, an integrated residential community equipped with a man made lake and 70-berth marina is currently being developed in the area.

Central to both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Coomera is increasingly popular among dual city employed couples and families.
