Area Profiles

Tugun

Around 19 kilometres from Surfers Paradise, the small suburb of Tugun offers all the natural beauty of the Gold Coast with little of the associated hustle and bustle.

With uninterrupted golden beaches and the highly-renowned Currumbin Oceanway, Tugun has long been an attractive option for holiday-makers and retirees.

However, apart from a limited number of beachside apartments that cater to tourists, the area is largely dominated by families and owner-occupiers attracted by the peaceful beachside community lifestyle.

Tugun’s most expensive streets are located along the beachfront but properties in the elevated micro-suburbs of Tugun Hill and Tugun Heights are also highly sought after, offering sweeping views out across the ocean.

Tugun is within close proximity to the Gold Coast Airport at Cooloongatta and is well serviced by local bus companies. The area will also benefit from the future extension of the electric rail line from Robina to the Gold Coast Airport.

The Tugun bypass, which travels west of the Gold Coast Airport, connects the Stewart Road interchange at Currumbin with the Tweed Heads Bypass just north of Kennedy Drive. The bypass has addressed what was once one of South East Queensland’s worst traffic bottlenecks.

The seven kilometre route separates local traffic from tourist and most heavy vehicle traffic; reduces congestion, travel times and air pollution along the existing highway; and provides opportunities for improved public transport.

Tugun is home to the John Flynn Hospital and a number of excellent associated medical centres and facilities.
