About Banora Point
Banora Point is a relatively new area, covering about 12 square kilometres, and is located south of South Tweed Heads, east of Terranora, and adjoins the Tweed River. The elevated areas offer views of the ocean, hinterland and district.
Demand for properties on the elevated East Banora Point peninsula has increased in recent years. This is due to the ocean and coastline views offered from many homes and the peaceful living offered due to only one main road providing access to most homes.
The established area of Oxley Cove is a boaties paradise, offering water/canal front living with easy access to the ocean via the Tweed River.
Most popular amongst young families with children, the Banora Point area offers a wide range of public and private schools as well as a variety of child care centres. It is also popular with retirees, who prefer to live in the level section adjacent to Leisure and Darlington Drives, due to easy walking access to shops, medical services and Club Banora. There are several retirement villages and cluster-housing developments in this vicinity.
To the west of the established section of Banora Point are the newest areas of Banora Waters and Flame Tree Park. Here you will find homes built from 2001 onward, many of which are larger family homes with swimming pools.
Banora Point has experienced vast growth over the past two decades, with the population totalling just under 12,000 in the 2001 census.
