Once regarded as the best kept secrets on the Gold Coast, Labrador’s first class water facilities and beautiful shore-lined parks have now brought the area very much into the limelight. Centrally located, Labrador provides a beachfront lifestyle with close proximity to Griffith University and Surfers Paradise. The Broadwater has excellent access areas to the water for windsurfing, sailing, para-flying, jet-skiing, boating, fishing and swimming – making this once sleepy suburb a popular retreat for holidaymakers.
Although there is no absolute beachfront property in Labrador, apartments and houses along Marine Parade offer beautiful views over the Broadwater. New developments are slowly moving in providing some excellent quality accommodation apartments for investors and rentals. Just minutes from Helensvale train station and the Pacific Motorway, Labrador is also serviced by Surfside Buslines. No vacant land remains in Labrador, with older homes now being replaced with newer developments. This is providing a significant facelift for the area which continues to grow in popularity.
Within the suburb are several small ‘villages’ such as Chirn Park and Heydon Heights. Too small to be called suburbs in their own right, these areas are becoming popular real estate ‘buys’ due to the appeal of lifestyle cafes, shops and amenities just nearby.
