Gold Coast Australia So Much More Than Surfers Paradise

Hope Island Gold Coast

Hope Island IS Gold Coast Lifestyle!

Hope Island (HI) is at the northern end of Australia’s Gold Coast.  Right next door to the prestigious Sanctuary Cove.

It is an area still very much “under development”, but is certainly taking shape.  

The area was originally sugar cane farms and is being transformed into luxury residential and holiday accommodation in secure gated communities that are based around canals, the Coomera River and resort style golf course.

This is what Gold Coast lifestyle is all about!

Holiday rentals and accommodation options include:

Boat at Hope Island Marina Gold Coast Australia
Boat in the marina
  • 4½ star boutique hotel
  • luxury villas
  • apartments
  • houses

Hope Island Resort (HIR) comprises of several large exclusive residential communities based around the marina waterways and golf courses.

Azzura Greens offers different styling to HIR but has a clubhouse, facilities, golf course and to complete the lifestyle of the rich and famous, Azzura Tennis Academy (was Pat Cash Tennis Academy) provides great opportunities to sharpen your tennis game!

The convenient shopping village means you can pick up your holiday needs without having to go too far and enjoy great relaxed restaurants or cafés including the Boardwalk Tavern and Red Rock.

The marina boasts super yacht berths as well as regular berths.

As usual in the Gold Coast you will be spoilt by the great golf and sporting facilities – anyone for tennis?

Hope Island Shopping Village

and Marina

Pretty much all the facilities you’d expect in a top holiday destination.

Many of the properties for rent come with their own Golf Buggy to get you around on some of the private roads.

Buggies are so cool!

It is one of those places that once you see it, or experience it, you are going to want to move here.

Beach Information

Hope Island has no beaches. There is a small river beach at Santa Barbara.

Closest beach on the Broadwater is Paradise Point.  At Paradise Point there is a swimming enclosure for safe swimming in the Broadwater.  Also a great café strip with some excellent little gourmet deli's and cafés.

Best beach by boat would be the pristine beaches at South Stradbroke Island – usually you have them all to yourself!

Broadwater beaches at Paradise Point, Labrador or Southport are within about 20 to 25 minutes drive.

Drive to Main Beach for some ocean beach and surf fun. Main Beach is the closest ocean beach and will take about 30 to 35 minutes by car.
