Our neighborhood:

Residential, with small shopping centre 5 mins by car. There is a beautiful beach 5 mins by car. We are 20 mins from Byron Bay and 30 mins from Tweed Heads (Gold Coast International Airport). 3 mins from motorway. (Brisbane 11/2 to 2 hrs)

With kilometres of sandy beaches, eleven flora and fauna reserves and the well know Ocean Shores Golf Club it offers many opportunities for sports and relaxation. The reserves are a haven for a variety of wildlife, including birds such as cranes, herons, swamp pigeons, kites, goshawks and many others. The large colony of fruit bats makes a spectacular sight at sunset as they fly out to the surrounding forests to feed. The town's lookout has spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding area, and is a great spot to take in the district outlook.

The town has a cross-section of population, with a number enjoying their retirement and their proximity to the golf club, whilst many young families have bought or built their dream homes on the lush and hilly settings. Artists, writers, performers and craftspeople find the quiet settings conducive to work, whilst keen surfers and swimmers enjoy the proximity to the beach. A modern shopping centre plus medical centre, pharmacy, tavern, restaurants and school cater to residents and visitors.
