"a little slice of heaven!"

i saw my house in august 2014 and bought it immediately....i just got very lucky. i love the area as it is so quiet and not densely populated. i plan to see my days out here, although hopefully not for at least, 2 more decades +. i thank God every morning for this lovely place and my lovely home! there are 2 of us and my children stay over very 3 weeks. the beautiful beaches are not far and some even have shade, plus you have the choice of 2 50mtr swimming pools....first thing i looked up as i swim for exercise!

"BEAUTIFUL, QUIET, PICTURESQUE"

I just want to say how delighted I have been with my choice to settle in Kawana Forest when we emigrated 4 years ago. We picked this suburb because it was handy to Pacific Lutheran School, where we wanted our boys to attend. The rainforest here is just beautiful, and tracks and cycle paths are easily accessible, including an easy walk to the reservoir and Green Belt countryside.
Its a safe place to live, and now the Kawana Way is complete, it is easily accessible to the Bruce and Sunshine Motorway.
What I also love about this estate is that unlike many other suburbs, there will only be 400+ houses here and will not be extended. I get lost when I drive to other sprawling suburbs, where all the streets look the same!
There is a nice mix here, including retired couples, professional couples, and of course families, which makes for a nice environment and hats off to the residents who run the Residents Association which includes regular get togethers and providers of information.
You cant go far wrong with picking Kawana Forest as a place to live!

"Scribbly Gum - what a gem of a street !!"

Quandong Street is great, but Scribbly Gum Drive is just awesome. Sure if you want to slum it, go to Quandong Street. If you want to live in Kawana Forrest Heights, then go to Scribbly Gum Drive. It can't be beat.
