Aura is a new master-planned community located on the Sunshine Coast. It is Australia’s largest master-planned community (in single ownership), and also the largest 6-star Green Star community. The estate will eventually host business and enterprise hubs, schools, a university, retirement and aged care options, sporting and cultural centres, endless recreation parks, an extensive transport network, and conservation areas.
Over 20,000 new homes will be built in Aura, and the display village is showcasing 40 different home designs by 24 different builders, meaning residents will have their choice of home.
OCTOBER 2020: Construction on the estate continues, with new stages being released periodically. A new release within the estate is the Baringa Townhomes, which are two, three and four-bedroom townhouses sitting close to the heart of the estate. The Aura Business Park is also under construction. The business park will accommodate a range of uses including light industry and manufacturing, bulky goods and showrooms, commercial office space, storage and warehousing, research and development, and indoor sports and recreation.
Aura is in a great location. Beyond the fact that the estate itself is essentially self-sufficient (with schools and many companies now settled within the estate bounds), the estate sits just under half an hour from Mooloolaba and Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. Australia Zoo, one of the best zoos in the world, is roughly 25 minutes away and Bribie Island is only a little further in the opposite direction. Brisbane is just over an hour away via the M1 (if you’re driving), although you could also use the extensive bus and train networks to get down there if you wanted to.
Residents have access to a number of communal facilities throughout the estate. This includes 10 parks and playgrounds, which cover everything from dog parks to state-of-the-art play zones. There are also extensive picnic shelters and BBQ areas throughout most of the parks. The estate has a number of community programs that residents can sign up to (run clubs, informal art classes, etc).
