Kirra Suburb Profile

One of the smaller suburbs of the Gold Coast, Kirra is a relaxed little beach suburb that sits conveniently close to Coolangatta and is only minutes from the Gold Coast Airport. Kirra Point, the small, rocky headland separating Kirra Beach from Coolangatta is known to be one of the world’s best surf breaks and attracts surfers from all over the Gold Coast.

There is a quaint little strip of shops that feature a couple of cafes with views out across that beach. Walking paths venture all along the foreshore and connect with the neighbouring suburbs, popular for early morning walks as the sun is rising over the sea.

A perfect little beach haven, Kirra offers residents the peace and tranquillity of a small coastal town with the convenience of living near the Gold Coast city centre.
