"Coomera the new Logan"

Upper Coomera is close to a few fast food chains, Woolworths and the motor way. It's about an hours drive to the Gold Coast beaches during a buisy weekend. Most of that time is trying to get out of the overdeveloped narrow streets of Coomera. There are no trees, only roof tops as far as you can see.
The only thing to do is to watch TV overlooking your small back yard behind a well locked door.
It's a great spot for investors to rent out to large renting families.
It's a depressing suburb.
You may as well live in Logan.
Pros
  • Great for families
Cons
  • Public transport not good at all, i know we got the trains st. but no bus!
  • Needs a higher Police presence.
  • Highway traffic

"Extremely contrasting areas, do your research"

Upper Coomera has drastically different areas to live in, some are extremely quiet and serene such as Highland Reserve and Reserve Rise with friendly people. We walk every evening after dark and hear nothing more than quiet music and voices if anything. Shopping is a breeze with so many choices within a 10 min drive. The schools are great other than UCSC which has developed a bad reputation. If one leaves for work before 7am there is no problem with traffic, things get a little hectic around school drop off time but that happens everywhere. Basically one should do their research when moving here, every suburb has it's good and bad areas, that's city life.
Pros
  • In between Brisbane and Gold Coast (work either)
  • Lots of developments happening
  • Great for families
  • New area. Everything is looks clean.
  • Range of living options (apartments, houses, canal living, gated estates, housing commision etc)
Cons
  • Public Transport could be better

"Great for young families!"

Upper coomera is a very large suburb, parts I would prefer not to live, but most areas are good and I have found it to be a great place to live. Public transport is excellent with a bus running fairly regularly all day off the main streets in my part of upper coomera, that takes you to the theme parks and helensvale Westfield and train station. My local shops (at the bottom of mt tambourine) are small, personal and the people lovely.. There is a small Coles, florist, hairdresser. Bakery, newsagent, subway, coffee shop, chemist, bottle shop, pizza/pasta shop, chicken takeaway, beauty shop, laundromat, Chinese takeaway, bank and several ATMs. There are plenty of both primary and high schools (public and private) in the area as well as quality daycare centres. There is a wonderful park and community centre nearby that operates lots of fitness classes, particularly stroller/mums and bubs classes. My area is surprisingly well kept by council also. The new library/community centre and public pool are amazing facilities!

"Upper Coomera is like..."

Upper Coomera is like the Harlem of the Gold Coast worst thing I ever did was move here too many hoons and dogs barking non stop and the local Council don't care, and I can see why because no one else does either. What a dump.
Pros
  • Lots of developments happening
Cons
  • Too many dogs barking non stop and too noisy
  • Public Transport could be better
  • Graffiti

"Probably the best in Northern Gold Coast"

Have lived here for a few years and really like it. Despite being absolutely packed to the rafters, it retains a somewhat "small town" feel to it, particularly in the old southern parts on the river. Lots of places to eat out and many many supermarkets to choose from. Loads of schools as well and, depending on where in the suburb you live, its is usually well serviced by public transport. Being a large and diverse suburb, some parts are very expensive and snobby whilst others are quite rundown and crime ridden.
Pros
  • Range of living options (apartments, houses, canal living, gated estates, housing commision etc)
  • Lots of shopping options
  • In between Brisbane and Gold Coast (work either)
  • Lots of developments happening
  • Great for families

"Close to everything: The Coast without compromise!"

Upper Coomera truly is the place to live for dual city residents, being conveniently located just down the highway from Brisbane but still close enough to enjoy the Gold Coast's renowned lifestyle. Good schools (both public and private) are located conveniently within the suburb as are a large array of shopping and dining options. The exit from the pacific highway can be a bit of a nightmare, particularly on school holidays as traffic banks up to get into Dreamworld, however I'd recommend taking the Pimpama exit and using Old Coach Road to avoid the traffic. A new community centre is currently under construction which will include a council library and pool. There are many medical facilities and doctor's practices throughout the suburb, and more childcare centres than you can poke a stick at! Overall, a great Gold Coast suburb that's hard to fault. I wouldn't live anywhere else!

"A nice place BUT..."

I have lived here for 4 years now, it used to be a very quite safe place that was ideal for my children to grow up. In the past 18 months the crime rate has sky rocketed with the local shopping centre being targeted by break and enters and some hoons destroying property and attacking children on buses. This area needs a strong police presence to stop some of the young folk running a muck and to bring back the safe place it once was. Other than the saftey aspects of this area it is a relativley nice place to live.

"Affordable living with diversity where everything is at your door step"

Situated within the "northern growth corridor" Upper Coomera continues to be one of the most sought after areas on the Gold Coast for families and investors alike due its its affordability, location and the vast diversity of residential living available... from semi acreage homesteads, secure townhouse living, riverfront homes to contemporary modern masterpieces your friends will envy. With 6 local innovative public and private schools, 3 shopping centres, public transport at your door, moments away from 3 theme parks and just minutes to the M1, Westfield Shopping Centre, Coomera Train Station and the proposed site for the Coomera Town Centre, everything is here. At the northern and newly developed end of Upper Coomera you will find The Coomera City Centre which currently consists of approx. 20 shops including medical centre, pool shop, Woolworths, newsagents will soon welcome Aldi, family tavern and a Masters hardware (bunnings competitor). The new service station and KFC has just opened near the new McDonalds and Subway stores. Estates to consider here are The Retreat offering stylish contemporary living by master builders, Sommerton Ridge where homes are built for the large family with blocks averaging 900sqm block and friendly neighbourly smiles are everywhere and Coomera Springs offering lakeside living which is another Stockland project boasting designer homes, the near new smart, digitally-rich Coomera Springs Primary School and an array of walking trails, nature reserves and playgrounds. Highland Reserve being another stockland project also boasts a near new high tech school and elevated and flat blocks around the lake and waterways. For buyers wishing to enter the property market, now is the time to snap up a bargain. Every area has something different to offer so Upper Coomera is perfectly suited to all tastes and budgets.

"Upper Coomera -- its gonna boom, love the area :)"

Been living here in Upper Coomera for 1.5 years now, we bought a house; lovely area, quiet and lots of open spaces. 5 minutes to Coomera train station, 40 minutes to Brisbane and 20 minutes to the coast, new developments popping up everywhere. New Servo (BP) and KFC planned for next year next to the newly opened Mcdonalds right next the the woolworths. Coomera town centre will also be great addition to the area once its completed.

"UC used to be good"

well we lived there for about 4 years, when we just got there it was a great quiet out of city suburb close to theme parks half way between GC and Brissy, short drive to Mt Tamborine and etc. but now with population growth and migration, the area is not as quiet as it used to be. its a great place for an average family with kids. the round about at the north band side of exit 54 is still a killer in the morning and afternoon peak with 20 - 25 mins wait sometimes to get to it. however Projection for new shops and road expansion as well as great interest from developers in the area, i guess will change the equations again within the next 5 years. so if you looking for a place to buy an investment property i would say UC but for living i personally do not recommend it.

"young family who loves the area"

when we bought our first home here we felt as if it was so far from "everything" but it was what we could afford.

After living here a very short time I soon realised that "everything" was ALOT closer than I thought. 12 minutes drive to Nerang. 5 minutes to Westfield Helensvale. Our favourite beach 10 minutes away. Lots of great parks and areas for families. Lit walkways of a night time for walking. Talk of the new Westfield going in.

Another major Pro is that my partner is in construction and can be based in gold coast onee week then brisbane the next. We are in the middle of Gold Coast and Brisbane, so now, it doesnt concern him where he is.

"Coomera Springs - Ideal family Lifestyle"

We have lived in Coomera Springs for two years, and have found it to be a fantastic family neighbourhood. Where do I start - we have like minded neighbours who watch our house, our kids and the neighbourhood (peace of mind!! - You know who you are), we have a great local primary school which we WALK our children to each day (and close to CAC where they will go to highschool). The Woolworths complex down the road is very handy for full grocery shops or forgotten items (unfortunately I have to call in their everyday!! (and I recomend the Chinese for Friday night take out)). It is the ideal location, close enough for my husband to travel to Brisbane every day for work, yet we still have the luxury of living on the Coast (Paradise). The most impressive and comforting thing about where we are now, is how happy our kids are. We have lived in three locations and this is by far the happiest and most settled they have been. We are 5 minutes from the oval where nearly every day we walk to play on the equipment, walk the dog and kick the ball. We walk 10 min down the road at least twice a week to the lake where we feed the ducks (3 families this year of ducklings) and eels (argh!), and the BBQ's in the parks have hosted many a Sunday afternoon sausage sizzle. The area and parks are fabulous for riding and scooters, it's a great place to live and a great pace for families!!

OB Hi there and thanks for your positive and encouraging comment... We are thinking of moving from Brisbane to Coomera Springs, just as a live style change. I have three primary school kids, do you have any school children? I would be interested in your opinion about the local schools. Also, are there any other parks for kids apart the one at the lake, many thanks

"A lovely place to live!"

Since moving to Upper Coomera in 2008, we have really grown into the community and love the peace and quiet of the area, its centrally located between Brisbane and Gold Coast and is close to all amenities. We love the leafy feel of the area and its peaceful; away from the busy roads. We live in Macdonald Ave, which is elevated with some great views. Great neighbours that are always so friendly! Great community feel with a place to bring up your family.

Coomera Springs in Upper Coomera is the most fabulous place to raise a family. Close to 3 schools, 3 daycare centres, Woolworths, medical centres, everything is within minutes. The estate is beautifully maintained, so green and spacious. Highly recommend this area to buy into and live.

"A safe clean and green area within very close range of the hustle and bustle"

What a great area. In particular the area around the lake is a real hidden gem. You feel like you could be a million miles away, but have all the amenities within minutes. This must be one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas so close to the Gold Coast.

Perfect for families, and water sports enthusiasts. From the lake to the ocean is a beautiful 25 minute cruise in a boat. And there are a number of restaurants to moor at along the way.

SE Queenslands hidden gem.

"Prime Location - "affordable living on the Gold Coast""

So many options, whether it be a townhouse, duplex, home, acreage or luxury living and prices starting from around $230,000 for a townhouse. There are a number of estates in Upper Coomera some of the main ones are Coomera Springs, Highland Reserve, Sommerton Ridge, Reserve Rise, The Views and The Landings all of which house quality & prices are slightly higher. Over the past 2 years more & more owner occupiers are purchasing here. Boasting 6 schools, 2 supermarkets, 2 petrol stations, 3 medical centres, swim school, local tavern, and an abundance of specilty shops. A very accessible suburb positioned on the M1 approx 80 minutes drive to the Sunshine Coast 25 Minutes drive to Surfers and 45 minutes to Brisbane city depending on traffic delays. 2 minutes to the train station which will get you to Brisbane airport in approx 1hr 20 mins. I have a young family and would definitely recommend investing in an annual pass to either Dreamworld, Movieworld or wet'n'wild, just keep an eye out for their specials (around $100 per year for unlimited entry). Goodluck in find your home. If you are looking to purchase a home in Upper Coomera email me Brad Daniels at L.J. Hooker on [email protected] with your requirements and i will look on your behalf.

"Central to all- Shops, Coast, Schools, Hinterland, Employment"

This town has really started to shine, new shops and facilities popping up everywhere, housing ranges to suit all people and budgets, river still has fish as we catch them weekly for a bbq, great for boating, bbq, picnics, good schools, all new supermarkets with good parking. Helensvale Homeworld has all the home shops, AMART, good cafes. Sanctuary Cove close for boating, lunch, golf, recreation centre.
Can catch the train to Brisbane from Coomera easily, and Gold Coast Airport is about 30 min away for cost effective flying interstate and overseas.
We can easily take a day trip to the hinterland and up to Mt Tamborine for lunch.
Have seen a lot of improvements and this is the next mini city. New Westfields being built and major shops near Dreamworld.

"A suburb on the up and up"

Upper Coomera is a suburb that's attracting some great young families. In the outer area of the Gold Coast, it's still affordable for families just starting out and yet close enough to all the conveniences of the Coast. Only 15 minutes drive to the beach and 15 minutes drive to the hinterland, Upper Coomera has got a lot going for it. It has a great school with a Kindy to 12 program and enough retail opportunities to make life incredibly easy. There are lovely parks and some very family friendly housing developments that have been built in recent years. All in all, it's a suburb that's going the right way to being one of the Gold Coasts' most livable.
