Living in Hope Island

If you win the first prize of this draw, the Gold Coast will be your new home! Hope Island is found at the northern end of the Gold Coast. It is a quiet suburb that is located near the country’s finest beaches, championship golf courses, fun theme parks, and premier shopping outlets.

Before it became a luxury residential community, Hope Island was a place filled with sugar cane farms. There are two main marinas in Hope Island, the first is Hope Island Resort Marina and the second is Hope Harbour Marina.

For your shopping needs, you can go to the Hope Island Resort shopping village. Here you will find many cosy cafes, boutique shops, and restaurants. The resort also has a world class golf course and golf club. This 6,500m Par 72 golf course was designed by Peter Thompson, a renowned British architect. Hope Island’s golf course has 5-star facilities and consistently ranks as one of Australia’s Top Ten Resort Courses.

If you need food items or random merchandise, head to the Marina Quays Market Village. The market is open from Tuesday to Saturday. When you visit, you will find art pieces, crafts, home accessories and local produce.

The Best of the Gold Coast at Your Fingertips

Living in Hope Island means that everything that the Gold Coast has to offer is within your reach!

For a day out with the family, you can go to any of Australia’s premier theme parks, such as Wet N Wild, Australian Outback Spectacular, Movie World, Dreamworld and Whitewater World. All of these are only 15 minutes away from Hope Island.

If you want a night out, you can also try Pacific Fair or Jupiter’s Casino for premium entertainment. These two venues are only 40 minutes away.

For a fun day in the sun, drive to the nearest beach, Paradise Point. The calm waters of Paradise Point make it perfect for swimming. There are also gourmet delis and cafes in the area.

If you want to go out for watersports, drive for half an hour to Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach. These places also have great beach-side restaurants where you can relax while you watch the waves crash on the shore.

Another beach to try out is the Main Beach. Here you can enjoy the sand and relatively calm blue waters. Main Beach is where the Gold Coast 600 Motorsport is held every year in October.

Living in Hope Island is also convenient if you take domestic and international flights on a regular basis, because the Brisbane Airport is only an hour away.
