Residential and commercial development
in Coomera has rapidly expanded in the
past decade, as the suburb becomes home
to a lot more than just Dreamworld.
Coomera has long been earmarked by the
Gold Coast City Council and the State
Government for a new satellite growth
suburb of the Gold Coast, similar in
many ways to Robina.
The area is separated into Coomera to
the east and Upper Coomera to the west
of the M1 respectively. The suburbs are
very different from each other and this
is reflected in the median house prices.
Coomera lies on the opposite side of the
Coomera River to Sanctuary Cove and Hope
Island, and as such offers substantial
opportunities for waterfront living,
with a marina already in place. The
suburb also has excellent access to and
from the Pacific Motorway.
Some of the newer developments on the
Coomera precinct include the canal
estate of Coomera Waters Village and
Resort. The estate has a 17 hectare
lake, 70 berth marina and direct
Broadwater access, and recreational
facilities. River Links is another
estate in the area where the lots vary
in size from 300 square metres to 1,642
square metres. Also more than half the
estate is committed to open space park
land and waterways.
The Coomera train station and a number
of schools already service the area and
major infrastructure - such as the
Coomera New Town Centre - is being
implemented. Coomera's population is
expected to multiply to about 80,000
over the next 20 years as the area
develops into a self-sufficient town
