The possibilities of a unique location
At one of the narrowest points separating riverbank and coastline on the Gold Coast, Rivea stands as a nexus for the region’s most alluring lifestyle possibilities.

Across from the Gold Coast’s upscale Isle of Capri neighbourhood, the gap between the winding Nerang River and the nearby ocean comes to one of its narrowest points. At this juncture between the beachfront and the waterways, the Rivea apartments create the rare possibility of experiencing both coastal and riverside lifestyles within a panorama that encompasses all of the region’s varied landscape, from shoreline to skyline and, in the distance, the richly forested hills of the Gold Coast Hinterland.
Next stop, Surfers Paradise
Rivea’s location makes for more than just an idyllic getaway. It’s also within striking distance of Surfers’ Paradise, the heart of the Gold Coast—Australia’s largest city outside of the state capitals. This makes it easy to choose as a year-round home, offering ample opportunities for work and education.
Surfers itself gives you plenty of urban entertainment and convenience. Countless restaurants and shops are easily accessible via the G:link light rail line running right past Rivea’s front entrance. A high-speed rail project planned as part of Queensland’s preparations for the 2032 Olympics will even bring Brisbane within commuting range, cutting the train ride there to just 20 minutes.
A life of rich and varied opportunity
For those with the leisure to explore its possibilities to the fullest, life at Rivea can be truly extraordinary. Morning beach walks are likely to become a treasured routine, perhaps with a stop to grab a coffee along the way. Shop for life’s necessities (and frivolities) at the opulent Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, less than ten minutes’ drive away or 15 minutes by light rail. And along the riverside, try kayaking or a river cruise, or simply relax in the comfort of Rivea’s own infinity pool by the water’s edge.
For pure entertainment, the buzzing Cavill Avenue district and nearby waterfront are the perfect setting for drinks and dinner after work or a day at the beach, at venues like the spectacular Seascape Restaurant with its ocean views, or the lively Brazilian Flame Bar & Grill. And when you’ve got a taste for adventure further afield, take a road trip to some of the hinterland’s natural wonders, such as the rainforests of Tamborine Mountain, which hosts not only a natural park but a picturesque golf club amid lush hills.
Whatever life you imagine, you’ll find a way to live it at Rivea.
