Hope IslandGold Coast Suburb Profile

One of the most sought-after canal frontage suburbs on the Gold Coast affectionately termed the North Shore. It is an up market northern Gold Coast suburb due to the beauty of the area and its deep water mooring potential and high mast accessibility. Perfect for any yachting or super boat or luxury cruiser enthusiast.

The area is being developed under a specific control plan that foresees a population growth and cap to 18 000. Residents enjoy resort style living in the gated communities of the area, with quiet tree-lined streets. 

These estates promote a sense of small town community and comfortable living. Still on the island are the older, more established areas of Santa Barbara and Boykambil. The prestigeous Sanctuary Cove is also location in Hope Island.
