Boaties Eye Safe Harbour at Serenity Cove

THE $500 million waterfront community Serenity Cove is making life a breeze for boaties eyeing an exclusive residence in the Gold Coast’s booming north with the opening of the city’s newest navigation lock.

The Serenity Cove lock connecting Lake Serenity with Saltwater Creek was completed last year at a cost of $5 million.

Construction was completed well ahead of the launch early this year of Serenity Cove, a luxury waterfront enclave that will ultimately comprise a mix of 143 vacant land lots, townhomes, freestanding homes and apartments when completed.

Central to the project will be a mini-marina with a stunning 3800sqm retail and dining precinct fronting Lake Serenity.

The lock provides direct ocean access to homes on Lake Serenity where more than $15 million in sales have been secured in the first stage boutique land release comprising 48 generous sized lots.

Colliers International National Director of Residential Project Marketing, Tony Hymus, said waterfront land was proving popular among the early buyers of the first stage.

“The lock has definitely been a winner among some of the true boaties looking to drop an anchor at Serenity Cove,” Mr Hymus said.

“Hope Island is home to a very strong boating community and Serenity Cove is perfectly located to take advantage of some of the best waterways in south-east Queensland.”

Serenity Cove is located about 1.6km metres upstream from Coombabah Creek which feeds directly into the southern arm of the Coomera River and into the Southport Broadwater.

The navigation lock can accommodate boats up to 15 metres long and 4 metres wide, and with a draft of up to 1.5 metres.

Dan Draper, General Manager Urban at Golding Contractors, said the lock is state-of-the-art and has the ability to transfer a vessel between gates in an average of five minutes.

“The design has been specifically crafted for leisure vessels with ease of use an important part of the process,” he said.

Bordering Oyster Cove and Hope Island Resort, Serenity Cove is considered the final piece of the Hope Island masterplan and will bring to life a new marine hub featuring luxury homes and designer apartments with water views.

More than a third of the Serenity Cove site, or about 27ha, is dedicated as a nature reserve while a further 10ha will become parkland. Just 19ha of Serenity Cove will be developed.

Serenity Cove is being undertaken by SDSC, a joint-venture partnership between two of Malaysia’s largest developers, Sime Darby and Brunsfield International Group. The partners have spent approximately $25 million in civil works, including the lock.

Colliers International has been engaged to market the project. Lots in the first stage are priced from $475,000.

The Serenity Cove Sales Centre, at Helensvale Drive, is open seven days a week from 10am to 4pm.
