    Default Pacific Pines or Coomera?

    Hi all!
    We are relocating to the Gold Coast in a few weeks. Need advice on the best places to live. We will be renting for a while and thinking either Pacific Pines of Coomera. Would love some insider knowledge or recommendations for any other family friendly suburbs!

    Well first you should ask yourself some questions...

    1. Do you like round-a-bouts?
    2. Do you have to do school pick ups or drop offs?
    A) Will it be public or private?
    3. Do you want a loooooong line of traffic or a looooooooooooong line of traffic?
    4. Do you require the use of public transport that actually gets you somewhere?
    5. Do you need shops within walking distance?

    Annnnd, in my opinion, the final question...

    6. How would you like to be stereo-typed? (That is over and above the usual 'Gold Coast' stereotype).


    (Actually the first q should be do you *really really really* have to move?)

    lol. I'm used to loooooooong lines of traffic where I am so that's not too much of a bother. What kind of "stereotyping" will i experience?? Whats the usual Gold Coast stereotype?? (I'm oblivious to this obviously) We don't have to move we want to.

    I live in Pac Pines and I love it! Family friendly, quiet, modern and a sense of community. Coomera doesn't have the greatest of reputations but it isn't as bad as it can be made out to be. I would pick Pac Pines over Coomera any day though

    Upper Coomera is better than Coomera, I would go Upper Coomera over Pac Pines :-)
