Just 25 minutes to the world-famous Gold Coast and 32 minutes to Brisbane. Gainsborough Greens is close to the best of everything that typifies a Queensland lifestyle.
Here are our top five picks for what is creating a buzz in the 4209 neighbourhood and its surrounds.
1. GREAT GOLF
The Gainsborough Greens Golf Course is one of the most cherished on the Gold Coast. Despite its lofty status, the 18 holes suit both social and professional golfers alike. The course is not so difficult that it deters high-handicappers but the exacting layout makes for a challenging day out for even the more experienced golfer.
2. BEST ON WATER
There is a reason the Gold Coast City Marina is Australia’s most awarded marina & shipyard in the Southern Hemisphere. The world-class facilities comprise everything a water lover could need, from jet skis to superyachts, the marina showcases the best of the boating industry. Recently refurbed it is also home to restaurants and bars.
3. NATURE & NURTURE
Keen walkers and hikers flock to the Pimpama region for all grades of nature trails. The 8 km Greenway within the Gainsborough Green community is a tree-lined walking and cycling trail, while further afield the Southern Moreton Bay National Park and the Jacobs Well Nature Reserve offer more strenuous alternatives.
4. LOCAL FAVE
Cafe culture and everyday convenience combine at Pimpama Junction. One Little Tree Café is a local fave, known for the quality coffee and kid-friendly vibe.
5. THE WORLDS
Australia’s adrenalin junkie nirvana is a mere 10 minute drive from Gainsborough Greens. If roller coasters and waterslides are your idea of fun then you can’t get a town closer to Dreamworld, Wet n Wild and Movie World
