"Cheep for a reason"

Upper Coomera is not Gold Coast living. It's a suburb out next to the freeway to Brisbane. In fact it takes approx 1.5 hrs to get to Gold Coast beaches on a Sunday. Most of that time is queuing the narrow streets out of Coomera.
On the up side there is a local generic concrete precinct with a coles, hungry jacks and brumbys.
Wow.
The crime rate is high as most of the houses are rented to large families with little to do and scarce public transport.
There are no trees. Just roof tops as far as you can see.
It's close to theme parks...
If you like watching TV overlooking a small fenced back yard behind a well locked door. Coomera is your place.
There are much nicer affordable places around the Gold Coast.
Don't be fooled by Coomera's "value for money".

jackd6 But their not really though are they. Same post code, same distance to Brisbane and GC etc. But you are right, Coomera is the nicer pic of both Upper Coomera and Coomera.

"Ghetto"

If I could move out of Coomera as of yesterday, I would. The roughest place I've ever lived. Every day and night l experience the "sights and sounds" of native Coomerans, I.e hoons who are not just in cars, but quad bikes, dirt bikes and motorised deck chairs and motorised eskies (yes really).

The area experiences break ins (granted this IS the Gold Coast) but getting police to the area is very difficult and from my experience, the average call out for assistance has taken an hour. My particular street experiences car accidents from hooning and public displays of domestic disputes.

The two ways to get out of Coomera, Foxwell Road and through Pimpama are chaotic bottlenecks and the single lanes just don't work for an ever-expanding area.

Would not recommend. Unless of course, you like to drive dangerously, or your mode of transport is a deck chair/esky on wheels. You'll likely get away with it around here.
Pros
  • Cheap rent
Cons
  • Rough
  • Ghetto

"Coomera is now our favourite part of the Gold Coast"

We lived in Coomera for many years, absolutely loved the location... Close enough to the beaches to make a trip on a nice sunny day, and far enough to avoid the hustle and bustle. We also found that it's very easy to get to Brisbane when needed since it's only 1 min from the highway north. One of the best schools in the state is in Coomera, so is the local shopping centre. The people here are the BIG Plus... very friendly and considerate.

Also the kids LOVE the fact that it's so close the dreamworld, we walk there on weekends sometimes when they give the local people in Coomera free passes :) They got to see the big brother house too. We fell in love with Coomera, we rented a nice 3 bedroom townhouse here which was very convenient (on Beattie Road)

"The Bronx"

Some parts might be ok. But the little estate behind genesis estate is the roughest place I have ever lived in my life. We left Ipswich for that reason thinking this would be a better place to bring up kids. How wrong was I. It's full of gangsters and bogans. Just like living in the Bronx. Everyone so angry here. People rarely smile. There is a lot of road rage. Also unless you are with Telstra your reption here is pathetic. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!

"Coomera Waters - good but..."

We've lived in three houses (rentals) over three years in Coomera Waters and the area is really nice with few problems, but there is one real PITA about our current address - Rainbow Circuit and this review is to inform people who may consider moving here - or anywhere in Coomera Waters really. Some streets have a real dog problem.

I work from home and I suspect there are around 7 dogs around us almost all left out all day, and the whole area sounds like a dog pound. All our close neighbours for sure have dogs - we don't.

I'm not intolerent of them and the occaisonal bark is no trouble, but because there are so many they all set each other off.

Before you move into a road take a walk round a few times first - some roads are nice and quiet - other echo with with howls and barks all day.

"Disappointing unless you enjoy dirt bikes roaring past at 6am 7 days a week and living in fear of crime"

Have lived on Azure Way for 2 years now and will be moving at the end of lease. Until recently was the only house in a row of 5 not to have been affected by crime from peeping toms, theft, hoons or property damage. Like I said - until recently. We'd hoped the estate would be more built in by now effectively removing the area that dirt bike riders illegally hoon around on - but no :(. Police are a regular sight in this area with new shoe box like townhouses filling in the vacant blocks. There is an AWESOME primary school on Finnegan Way. No shops within walking distance. Public transport stops on Finnegan Way/Foxwell Rd which is again about 2-3kms from our street. Coomera/Upper Coomera itself doesnt even have a local Post Office - you have to go to Oxenford or Helensvale for the nearest one :( Can walk to Coomera train station - about 4 kms away but doable. Have to be wary of walking on the Rd for about 1/2 a km.
