its neighbour Arundel, the suburb of
Parkwood rolls out across the low hills
west of Southport and is surrounded by
fantastic golf courses. Both Parkwood
and Arundel are potential key
residential growth areas that benefit
from easy access to the Pacific
Motorway, Helensvale Rail Station,
Griffith University and the Broadwater.
Parkwood is a popular address for tenants and, as a result, has attracted many investors. The area has become a student hot spot -- the university is only five minutes drive -- and is also popular with hospital workers, who have an easy, 15-minute commute to the Gold Coast Hospital. Nevertheless, the area's popularity has put pressure on owner-occupiers, who have to compete with students and tenants for parking spaces.
There is very little new land available in Parkwood and what does exist is generally sold as part of house-and-land packages by developers. There are major shopping centres in nearby Arundel and Molendinar. Parkwood is home to the Parkwood International Golf Course and the Gold Coast Country Club is just across the Coombabah Creek in Gaven
