When it comes to urban living with a relaxed attitude, Chevron Island’s village is the place to be. 

Uniquely located between the suburbs of Surfers Paradise and Bundall but separated by the waters of the Nerang River, Chevron’s charm comes through its connection to the surrounding suburbs whilst still seeming worlds away.

And now, a new luxury tower is set to take centre stage in the sought after suburb with Aniko's Orama.

Orama, which means "vision" in Ancient Greek, is a 21-storey tower that will offer 102 luxury residences. The development's unparalleled location next to the water and just a few steps away from the heart of the Gold Coast – Surfers Paradise – gives residents not only unparalelled views but also a remarkable amount of privacy.

Despite its proximity to Surfers Paradise, Chevron Island is a quiet residential suburb that's perfect for people who want to live near the beach without the noise and crowds of a busy tourist destination.

And with the newly developed Green Bridge linking residents to Surfers Paradise, Chevron Island is also a key extension of the Arts and Culture Precinct, headquartered at the famed Home of The Art (HOTA).

Orama residents will be able to enjoy a host of fine dining restaurants, eateries, and cafes just a short stroll away. Places like Fu Manchu Oriental, Bottega Italian Restaurant, and Palette Restaurant offer a range of dining options for discerning palates.

Located at 12-16 Weemala Street, Orama sits just off from the main drag of Chevron Island, with Thomas Drive featuring a crop of boutique retailers amongst the offerings as well as the Colin Sweeny Art Gallery, Chevron Island’s fishing platform and Chevron’s Rowing Club also sitting amongst the wealth of amenity surrounding the residences.

Other nearby destinations for shopping, dining, and world-class entertainment include Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Capri on Via Roma, and The Star Casino.

And with easy access to public transport, major shopping centres, and entertainment venues, Chevron Island is a central location that's perfect for busy urbanites.

Chevron Island is also only a short walk from some of the Gold Coast's most popular beaches, such as Surfers Paradise Beach, Broadbeach, and Burleigh Heads. This makes it the perfect location for those who want to enjoy the sun, sand, and surf without having to travel far from home.
