Streets in Hope island

  • Hope Island is a suburb on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. At the 2011 Census, Hope Island had a population of 8,483. Hope Island is close to both the Gold Coast beaches and Brisbane city. The area was named after colonial aristocrat Captain Louis Hope, who was granted approximately 1,800 acres (7.3 km2) of land at the mouth of the Coomera River in recognition of his contribution in developing the sugar industry in Queensland. After arriving in Moreton Bay in 1848, Hope spent the next 20 years building sugar plantations on the edge of Moreton Bay. The development of a sugar plantation called ‘Rockholm’ on the Island was largely undertaken by the Grimes Family. By the twentieth century, the sugar and arrowroot plantation had passed into the hands of the Sheehan and Davidson families. Hope himself never actually lived in the suburb of Hope Island, preferring to live in Ormiston on the edge of Moreton Bay. Hope Island is positioned on the northern Gold Coast. It is a short distance from the Pacific Motorway. Hope Island has a marina, shops, restaurants, theme parks, schools and three golf courses within close proximity. Hope Island is home to the upmarket Hope Island Resort and Sanctuary Cove. Community facilities include a harbour front dining/shopping precinct, deep water mooring facilities and luxury housing. Hope Island is currently undergoing major strategic planning by developers, together with the Gold Coast City Council, who advocate mixed use (that is, parallel commercial and residential development).
