Pacific Pines

Pacific Pines is a family focused, Stockland planned residential community and is nestled amongst 68ha of green space that ranges from manicured parks and recreational areas to natural bushland. Gently undulating terrain gives a great selection of views from coastline to the quiet natural beauty of national forest.

Pacific Pines offers a convenient and relaxed lifestyle. This relatively new suburb is an ideal location for both work and play being only 80kms from Brisbane and a short 15kms from the Broadwater and Gold Coast surf beaches.

The retail heart of this community is the Pacific Pines town centre with the family friendly Tavern Cut ‘N’ Grind Caf√© and essential services such as Woolworths, Medical Centre and Chemist that cater to local’s everyday needs. There are many more convenience stores and include a 7-11 Service Station and Zaraffa’s Drive through Coffee.  It is also located close to two of the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks; Movie World and Wet ‘n’ Wild, with Dreamworld only a short drive away.

Originally part of Gaven, Pacific Pines, became a separate suburb in 2003. Its neighbouring suburbs are Gaven, Oxenford, Maudsland, Helensvale and Arundel.
