Nestled between the Tallebudgera and Currumbin Creeks and with an array of parkland and natural reserves, the suburb of Elanora offers a recreational playground for the large number of families who occupy the area. Fifty eight per cent of households in Elanora consist of families and the 10 to 19 age group is predominant in the suburb. This is reflected in the significant number of educational facilities on offer. Elanora Primary and Elanora High Schools are within the suburb’s boundaries and a significant number of other private and public schools are nearby.
Elanora features some of the southern coast’s newest residential estates including the mixed density Lakewoods, which is around 13 years old, and the more recent Highland Green subdivision. Where possible, mature trees have been retained during the development of these estates and, together with natural parklands and Golf Courses, add to the natural feel of this ‘green pocket’ of the Coast.
Hilltop, lakefront and riverfront homes are obviously the most sought after, which is reflected in higher prices at these locations. In particular, houses on Doubleview Drive are of a very high quality and offer remarkable outlooks over Palm Beach and south to Currumbin Beach. The suburb enjoys quick and easy access to the Gold Coast Highway and the Pacific Motorway and local buses regular service the area. Retail facilities are conveniently located at The Pines Shopping Centre and 19th Avenue Shopping Centre.
