Gold Coast Suburb Profile - Ashmore

Ashmore is a popular, older and well established suburb built on rolling hills and surrounded by elderly trees. Due to its elevated location, some Ashmore homes can enjoy views to the beach and ocean and back towards the Hinterland.

Ashmore is just that little bit removed from the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast yet it is so opportunely centered near the beach, shopping centres, CBD, retail precincts and M1 and rail links.

The suburb definitely has a strong community feel which is concentrated on family life which is seen in the numerous parks, gardens, schools and sporting facilities. There is also a large amount of older residents in the area, which is helped by the great retirement facilities located in Ashmore.

The strong sense of community is present in Ashmore as you drive the streets you are privy to the many Community Centres and sporting grounds. The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra Centre is located on Community Drive and is home to the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra, Gold Coast City Choir, Youth Choir, Banana Blenders and Rhapsody Music.
