Coomera is a suburb of the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. At the 2011 Census, Coomera had a population of 8,793. The name Coomera comes from the Aboriginal word for fern.
Coomera has long been earmarked as a new satellite growth suburb, similar in many ways to Robina. With Australia’s biggest and most popular theme park, Dreamworld and location of the Big Brother Australia house, and plans for a TAFE, a university campus and Queensland’s biggest shopping centre around the existing station, Coomera has been predicted to grow considerably beyond its present size.
Coomera has seen significant residential development including Coomera Waters which is a master planned community encompassing a 2,500 lot harbour, canal and dry land estate over 375 hectares of land located on the northern side of the north arm of the Coomera River, directly opposite Sanctuary Cove on Hope Island.
Other residential developments currently under construction include Beacon Heights, Big Sky, Coomera Downs, Coomera Parklands Stage II, Coomera Waters, Genesis, Lily Rise and Nautical Edge.
