Couran Cove Island Resort is an Ecotourism island resort on South Stradbroke Island near the Gold Coast. As you take the short ferry ride along the Coomera River, sit back and settle into holiday mode as you pass Sovereign Island's luxury mansions and cruise over the calm Broadwater to your island resort accommodation.

Unique in its waterfront location, Couran Cove Island Resort is surrounded by native bush, rainforest and beautiful beaches. It is the ideal choice for an active family holiday or a quiet island escape for couples and friends. Resort accommodation includes Lodges and Apartments with sweeping Marina & Lagoon views.

Spend your next Gold Coast holiday playing tennis, basketball, lawn bowls, putt putt golf or explore the running tracks across the Island from the calm Broadwater to the Surf Beach. For families, Couran Cove Island Resort offers an island sanctuary where children have the freedom to bike safely with new friends and roam around tracks through the native rainforest spotting Australian wildlife. No cars or roads, just nature's peace and quiet.
