Banora Point well worth a visit

IT'S not their town, but it doesn't stop New Zealanders Clint Ross and Anne Tomsen from singing the praise of Banora Point.

"We love it here," they said.

"Right now back in New Zealand it's cold and wet," Mr Ross said.

"My mother, Clare Hudson lives at Banora Point and I think of myself as being very lucky to have a reason to visit.

"Banora has everything from great eating venues through to clubs and plenty of entertainment right on your doorstep."

Ms Tomsen said the town has "the best of all worlds."

"You get all the benefits of a Gold Coast life without the rat race of the big city," she said.

"The airport is five minutes away, yet so are the best beaches in the world.

"I can shop, eat, get entertained and catch a plane all in one morning," she laughed.

"This really is the good life.

"I can actually see the mountains and green hills of the Murwillumbah region, while smelling a sea breeze.

"I guess as New Zealanders we can really appreciate what others might take for granted.

"Not us."

"I think the people who live at Banora Point have a charmed and magical existence," Ms Tomsen said.

"It's great for older people to settle, too.

"They have everything they need and it's really layback as well.

"We only have two days left before we fly home.

"We are going to make the most of the beauty and sunshine."
