Gold Coast suburbs amongst best in the country to invest

A number of Gold Coast suburbs have popped up on a list of places to invest in Australia, with Burleigh Heads even coming in second.

ME Bank’s top places to invest around the country, which was initially published by Newscorp, takes into account factors such as transport options and coffee shops within the area, to determine which areas are up and coming.

The Gold Coast’s Burleigh Heads came in second place, just behind the Brisbane suburb of Woolloongabba.


It’s understood the light rail extension was monumental in getting Burleigh up the top of the list, as it will better connect the whole area.

Mermaid Beach and Miami also made the list, although a little further back. They fell in the 17th and 18th spots respectively.
