Palm BeachGold Coast Suburb Profile
This southern beach side suburb has managed to remain that little bit out of the way of the Gold Coast and delightfully less developed than some of its neighbouring suburbs.
With excellent surf and a beautiful stretch of coast Palm Beach is very popular for surfers up and down the coast. The picnic facilities down by the beach make for a great spot for families and can be quite busy on weekends and holidays.
Close to the CBD and other main attractions of the Gold Coast, Palm Beach is an ideal living location with a range of home styles to choose from. On the seaward side of the Gold Coast Highway are oceanfront homes ranging from the modest to the extravagance of the suburb’s own millionaire’s row on Jefferson Lane. On the inland side of the Highway water-front homes are available in the canal estates.
The area is very popular with young families for its relaxed atmosphere with close proximity to major shopping, beaches and the increasing cafe culture.
