Why The Property Developers Are Going To Pimpama – Coomera Gold Coast Reasons 4 – 5



In this blog I continue on  from the previous two issues about Pimpama – Coomera “Why The Property Developers Are Going To Pimpama – Coomera Gold Coast” and “Reasons 1 – 3“. If you missed those issues links are provided at the bottom of this blog. As mentioned previously the “early in” property developers have recognised the near insurmountable about of positive data coming out about the Gold Coast – Brisbane corridor  and the “call to develop” was supported by very impressive numbers.


In 2012 the Gold Coast’s economy was worth $24.02bn. It is Australia’s 6th largest city and the largest non-capital city.

Top 11 Key Industries & Driver’s in order of economic contribution:.

  • Retail Trade
  • Construction
  • Health Care and Social Care
  • Accommodation and Food
  • Manufacturing
  • Education and Training
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical
  • Administrative and Support

Tourism is the Gold Coast’s linchpin, contributing 1 dollar of every 5 dollars generated in the Gold Coast economy.
