Access to the Nerang River, the Broadwater and the ocean; Small community with prestegious housing
Chevron Island precinct is a small yet
exclusive residential enclave. Even
though it is not an official suburb of
the Gold Coast, but is rather a part of
Surfers Paradise, the area does have its
own unique identity. Situated in the
middle of the Nerang River, Chevron
Island has clear access to both Surfers
Paradise and Bundall. Also the island
has direct access to the Broadwater,
with the Gold Coast Bridge the only
obstacle to contend with.
There are three very different dwellings
styles that make up the island,
including the older-style, one-storey
houses that date back to the 1960s; the
more modern three and four-storey homes
that are the norm for the island; and
the exclusive absolute riverfront homes
located around the island's perimeter.
The future for Chevron property market appears solid, as the town plan allows buildings in the centre of the island to reach a maximum height of eight to ten levels; this however will be balanced by a greater proportion of the parcel being set aside for landscaping. Cronin Island is situated at the northern tip of Chevron and is another prestige tight-knit community. The island is small and has only one street - Southern Cross Drive - that surrounds a park. As you would expect, the homes are grandiose and exclusive. One of Cronin Island's impressive claims is that it is home to Queensland's first million dollar house sale back in 1983.
