Helensvale is a booming suburb nestled perfectly in South East Queensland between two booming cities. Helensvale is an established community with all of the infrastructure and facilities already in place. Established and welcoming its first residents in the 1980's, Helensvale has continued to welcome many new facilities including the Helensvale Library, Helensvale community Centre, Westfield Shopping Centre plus the neighbouring theme parks are a huge draw card for our community.
The primary and high schools are very sought after with many families moving into Helensvale for their children to attend. The Helensvale State School runs a Prep-Year 6 program including a special education unit. It opened in 1984 with an initial enrolment of 238 students and now has approximately 1100 students. The high school opened in 1990 and now caters for approximately 2500 students in years 7-12. The high school runs an excellence program for many different academic and specialty subjects including sports.
Helensvale caters for all age groups with many sporting programs available. Helensvale is built around the local golf course which provides course frontage to many homes. Club Helensvale is the place to be if you are a keen lawn bowler. The cricket ground is located in the heart of Helensvale with practice nets and onsite club house, home to the Helensvale Hawks. We benefit from two football fields one is located next to Helensvale High School and is home to the Helensvale Hogs (Rugby Union) and the second one is in Monterey Keys home to the Helensvale Hornets (Rugby League). Helensvale swimming club meets at the Helensvale Swimming pool where swimming lessons are also available in the inside heated pool.

The addition of Westfield Shopping Centre in 2005 saw our little community well and truly placed on the map. A casual 15 minute drive will see you at some of the many waterways the Gold Coast has on offer.
