Location: 43km to Surfers Paradise
Northern Gold Coast, approximately 43km from Surfers Paradise
Access to Pacific Motorway; positioned between Brisbane and the Gold Coast; large homes; extensive parkland
Straddling the Pacific Motorway, the
northern Gold Coast suburb of Ormeau is
well known for its sprawling homes and
beautiful countryside. In keeping with
the surroundings, developers in the area
have continued the theme of acreage
living through their residential
projects. The fact that no more new
acreage subdivisions are allowed for
Ormeau has added value to existing
properties and meant that land being
resold is generally not on the market
for very long.
Jacobs Ridge is a new estate located to the east of the Pacific Motorway, offering a semi-rural location and views across farmland. Winding walkways, bicycle trails and a feature park that includes a multi-purpose sports course are features of this suburb.
Meanwhile, Ormeau Hills is a master planned community which offers more than a standard size block in the middle of suburbia. With wide tree-lined streets, this residential development has a backdrop of parkland, bushland and rolling hills with panoramic views in all directions, including to Stradbroke Island. Established Ormeau homes on large blocks surround the local shopping village and are made primarily of brick and tile.
The shopping village, the Ormeau Centre, has the essential shops - grocery store, chemist, post office, etc. - but more elaborate retail facilities are outside the suburb. The only school in the suburb is the non-mainstream Toogoolawa School, but there are numerous schools in surrounding suburbs such as Coomera and Oxenford
