About Kooralbyn and Beaudesert

Kooralbyn Valley

The Kooralbyn Valley is home of the once famous Copperhead Golf Competition and this still thriving community recorded a population of 1372 in 2011.

With the gorgeous Gold Coast beaches to the East, Brisbane City to the North, Kyogle, Casino and Lismore to the South and Boonah, Ipswich and Aratula to the West, nothing is much more than an hour drive away from this great location in the heart of the Scenic Rim and the Gold Coast Hinterland. A perfect spot to enjoy a rural lifestyle on town water while still being close enough to the City or coast for work and play.

Our lovely village includes a great local shopping centre with; Doctor, Chemist, Foodworks, Cafe, Takeaway, Pub and local service station. There is an International School and "The Kooralbyn Resort" which is now under new management and is in the process of being refurnished and renovated along with the famous Kooralbyn Golf Course. If it is the larger supermarket, specialty shops or more schools you are after, Beaudesert has, along with many others; Coles, Woolworths, Target, Mitre 10, Primary Schools, High Schools and Daycares and is only a short 20 minute drive from Kooralbyn.

Kooralbyn has an abundance of wildlife including; Kangaroos, wallabies, possums, bandicoots, lorrikeets, king parrots, owls and plenty more. Wildlife, fresh clean air, your own space, less noise and the millions of stars visible from your own home are just some of the benefits of living in a rural location.
