Coombabah borders the Coomera River and the tidal wetlands known as Coombabah Lakes Nature Reserve. It is a family orientated suburb with an abundance of parks, wildlife and easy river access. The word Coombabah translates to meaning home of the turtles.
There are many dry lots in Coombabah, but most are just a short walk to Coombabah Creek, however, there are also a lot of lake and riverfront homes. Lining the creek there are homes used by holiday makers 40 to 50 years ago. These same holiday makers have returned to enjoy their uninterrupted views of the estuary and fantastic positioning and live in retirement.
