Creek to Creek – Coast to Hinterland

“The true heart of the Southern Gold Coast”

Ray White Palm Beach’s sales and property management consultants are predominantly active in the suburbs of Palm Beach, Elanora, Currumbin, Currumbin Waters, Currumbin Valley, Tallebudgera, Tallebudgera Valley and Tugun.

The area is somewhat distinct from the rest of the Gold Coast in character and atmosphere; some locals say “light years away from the hustle and bustle of the areas more famous Surfers Paradise”. Be that true or not the area is certainly vastly different in terms of natural ecological landmarks; boasting two of the Gold Coast three natural waterways (Tallebudgera Creek and Currumbin Creek) and two of the Gold Coasts most stunning and picturesque rural valleys (Tallebudgera Valley and Currumbin Valley.

These suburbs comprise approximately 22,000 private occupied dwellings and a population of approximately 60,000 people. This area is growing steadily in population at a rate of approximately 5% pa. The Palm Beach area is located along a 12 kilometre beachside strip between Burleigh Heads and Coolangatta and is on the doorstop of Coolangatta International Airport. Brisbane International Airport is only one hour’s drive to the north.

“Outstanding environmental features”

The area boasts a number of significant environmental landmarks.
To the east, Palm Beach and Currumbin Beach combine to provide over 12 kilometres of pristine beachfront to the Pacific Ocean.
The northern and southern boundaries of the precinct are marked by Tallebudgera Creek and Currumbin Creek respectively; two of the Gold Coasts most environmentally significant and beautiful natural waterways.

To the West Tallebudgera and Currumbin Valleys dominate the landmass as it rises to the mountains culminating in the magnificent hinterlands. A trip through either valley takes in picturesque rainforests and wonderful Australian bushlands.

“Diverse housing options”

The area perhaps more than any other suburb on the Gold Coast provides housing opportunities to suit all tastes and budgets. On the beach you will find multi million dollar mansions. Just a short walk from these homes are affordable units from under $350,000.

The Valleys provides a variety of property, from hobby farms to million dollar plus acreage retreats.

Located between the extremes of beach and hinterland is a huge variety of modern residences; many on canal or lakefronts, all in delightful tree-lined suburbs.
