Gold Coast Suburb Profile - Yatala
Yatala - Stapylton
Superbly positioned in a location of great natural beauty in one of Australia's fastest growing regions, Yatala (on the western side of the M1 Pacific Motorway) and Stapylton (east) was once considered the Gold Coast's 'Ugly Duckling'. That was until the suburb was 'discovered' in the 1970s as a commercial / business / industrial centre conveniently positioned midway between the Brisbane CBD and the Gold Coast. Today the area offers people a much sought-after lifestyle option; the chance to live in a rural setting with business or work close by. The suburb is a master-planned community that offers an appealing, young eco-lifestyle in a green, semi rural environment.
Residential housing options locally are plentiful and varied, ranging from units and affordable estate-style family homes and waterfront property through to lifestyle acreage, golf course mansions and villas.
