The Gold Coast is a great place to live, we moved here 2005 and we have never looked back. A lot of suburbs have pockets in them that are great for families. I think you need to narrow it down a bit by looking at the schools that might best suit your children and where you will be working. TSS and St Hilda’s are two very popular private schools up here but with All Saints probably being one of the most sought after. The areas you have mentioned are very different and varied. Some have a very strong rental presence which in some of these areas is not good. Do you want to be near the beach or Broadwater? Live in a house or complex? I have a few areas I particularly like but without a stronger idea of your family’s needs it hard to say. If you let me know what you would like to be close to I'll let you know my thoughts. Hope this helps.
I personally love Robina and the surrounding areas, cant go wrong, great schools, shopping, transport, medical, uni, day-care and a great place to bring up the family. I have lived, worked and raised my family here after leaving Sydney 12 years ago and have not looked back. Good luck with it all.

Hi Marie, thank you for your reply. Robina is one of the areas we are now seriously considering. It seems to tick all the boxes. We're also looking at nearby mudgeereba as another option. We'll be house hunting soon and hope to find something in those areas close to schools. Thanks for your feedback, it's much appreciated.
MUDGEERABA for sure, it is super quiet with good land space when compared to Robina.
Close to M1 which means you can be at south or north GC within 20mins.
Also Mudgee has lots of parks and walks in the area.
There are many greats schools (public and private) in the area.
