While Ashmore is little bit removed from the hustle and bustle of the main tourism strip, it is still a very central suburb that close to everything. It does not matter if you are heading to the beach or west to the M1 motorway, Ashmore is only a 15-minute drive to almost everything. As a result, it is exceptionally popular with young families and those who are looking for a quieter life. Ashmore is home to more than 12,500 people and there is a strong community feel in the suburb. Numerous parks, gardens, schools and sporting facilities are found in the area, which is a major drawcard for families. Due to its elevated location away from the beach, some of Ashmore finest homes enjoy views over the Gold Coast skyline to the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean or west towards the amazing greenery of the Gold Coast hinterland.
Ashmore is also home to many community organisations including the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra Centre, the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra, Gold Coast City Choir and the Gold Coast Youth Choir.
