Coomera & OxenfordGold Coast Suburb Profile

Coomera is located at the northern part of the Gold Coast and is fast becoming a major urban community. Once known only as home to Dreamworld, the suburb is becoming one of the most sought after in the region.

Coomera is central to both Brisbane and Gold Coast making it ideal for dual city employed families and couples.

Devout boaties and fisherman have easy deep water accessibility as the Coomera River flows out to the Broadwater and Moreton Bay. The lower reaches of the Coomera River are highly developed with the inclusion of a number of canal estates. Further upstream, the land has been cultivated for crop growing, pine tree farming, cattle grazing and dairy farming.
