"Beautiful Banora Point, a lovely place to live"

Banora is a lovely place for families to live. There is a choice of schools, private and NSW Ed department and all have good reputations. Close by is Southern Cross university, which offers a good range of courses There are TAFE campuses in Kingscliff and Coolangatta.
Banora has a two supermarkets Coles and BiLo, a medical centre and numerous speciality stores. Newly renovated and extended Tweed City shopping centre has all major stores, movie theatres, banks and a large food court.
Banora point is a short drive from Kingscliff where you can indulge in great coffee or enjoy beautiful beaches. It is a short ten minute drive into Coolangatta which has even better beaches, restaurants and shopping. Our family has lived in Banora for ten years and love it.

"Highly recommended Banora is a lovely place to live"

Banora is a great place to live, relaxed, safe and quiet. I highly recommend it to families, retirees, professional couples anyone who enjoys beaches, lovely walks, coffee shops and shopping and sport.
There are good gyms, golf courses and sporting clubs nearby. Only 10 minutes to Coolangatta airport which has lots of domestic and international flights daily.

"I'm feeling sorry for my old mate who lives here."

My mate has a great house, though in Brit terms I'd call it a bungalow with a great view; its on acres of land with loads of sheds.
He's a farmer and misses his land and stock and this outer urban living is not suiting him.

When I visit its like the lost souls who live round here, secure on their expensive acreage, just wishing they were somewhere else. No amount of money and a good view can make up for being in the wrong place. You might look out over Tweed Heads and the lower Gold Coast and feel smug but you'd all be better living in Brisbane or Sydney - no matter how many BMWs and AUDIs you've got in the sweep round drive.

"Flametree Park"

The mobile phone reception from all but Telstra is poor, if you see people in their driveways on the phone you will know why!!

"Banora Point is in NSW NOT QLD!!!"

Since when has Banora Point been in QLD? Banora Point is actually located in the state of NSW just south-west of Tweed Heads on the NSW side of the NSW/QLD border.

The integrity of this site is jeopardised by such a stupid mistake. Although I am pleased that SOME streets in Banora Point mentioned on this site DO have NSW after them.

Tate Brownlee
Tate Brownlee Great place for a relaxed lifestyle, with amazing beaches, shops, alfresco dining, schools and short distance to the Gold Coast, Byron Bay and commutable distance to Brisbane. Perfect area for retirees with plenty of clubs, shops, and hospitals close by. Could not be a better place for families with excellent education, a great sense of community and plenty of parklands, reserves (including Mount Warning), and play areas (both coastal and parklands). One of the best median temperatures all year round. If you are thinking of selling, buying or renting I look forward to hearing from you.
