Coolangatta is Queensland’s most southerly coastal town. Located on the border, near its twin town of Tweed Heads, Coolangatta is approximately 100 kilometres south of Brisbane and is the perfect spot to enjoy a relaxed coastal lifestyle with the excitement of Surfers Paradise only 30 minutes away.
The Coolangatta region boasts three pristine beaches – Coolangatta, Greenmount and Rainbow Bay. Patrolled by two surf clubs, these are the Gold Coast’s only north facing beaches and are popular for swimming and surfing. In addition, the famous surfing beaches of Kirra, Snapper and Duranbah are only minutes away. Offering safe sandy beaches, access to major shopping centres and world class licensed sporting and recreational clubs, Coolangatta often lures visitors back permanently.
The astute buyer has a diverse range of housing to choose from, including luxury high rise apartments with spectacular ocean views and older three storey walk-ups and duplexes. Due to many of the houses in the area dating back to the 1960’s, the area has seen much in the way of renovations, extensions and even demolitions making way for new dwellings. There have been some newly constructed high-rise developments, including Essence, Ocean Blue and Reflections, which are all taking shape. Residents have good access to medical facilities, schools and retiree services.
The area is also well known for its weekly markets providing shoppers with an opportunity to purchase handmade local arts and crafts, a wide variety of fresh produce and delicious food. With the exception of Coolangatta Primary School, educational requirements are serviced by neighbouring suburbs. Local transport to and around Coolangatta consists mainly of buses or private motor car, with the nearest rail service at Robina. Road access to the north and south is easy, by following Coolangatta Rd to the Pacific Highway.
Tucked between Coolangatta, Tweed Heads and Bilinga, Kirra is one of the fastest growing suburbs on the Gold Coast. Services and facilities are all nearby for the convenience of residents and holidaymakers, including shopping centres, specialty shops, Coolangatta Airport and schools.
Kirra is also home to the famous Kirra Surf Life Saving Club, not to mention beautiful beaches. Units are a dominant feature of the Kirra property market, making this suburb the perfect place to buy for investment reasons. With continued redevelopment of existing unit blocks, it is not surprising to find that no vacant land remains in Kirra. Buyers looking to settle in Kirra will have to opt for one of the many established units and holiday apartments on offer, or one of the few houses available in the area. Among the qualities which attract buyers to Kirra are its seaside lifestyle and village surroundings.
