Schotia Island RBC

About our Residential Body Corporate

Like the other RBC’s, Schtoia Island is named after a botanic genus.  The schotia genus was named for Richard van der Schot by Jacquin who was the director of the Imperial Gardens at Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna. Van der Schot was his head gardener there. The genus originates from Africa. In south-east Queensland the species occurs as Schotia brachypetala which is sometimes referred to as the Drunk Parrot Tree due to the popularity of the fermenting nectar-rich flowers.

Schotia Island occupies an eastern extremity of Sanctuary Cove and encompasses Harbour 4 and an island within it commonly referred to as Mike Gore Island, after the original developer of Sanctuary Cove. The Schotia Island is accessed via a bridge off the eastern end of the Parkway.

The Schotia Island has 113 lots under a Group Title Plan first registered in 2003.

Nearly four hectares of public parks stretch throughout the centre of the Schotia Island starting with Paul Toose Park to the north. Justice Paul Toose drafted the original Sanctuary Cove Resort Act. Then next is Schotia Park North and Schotia Park South which terminates at the southern end of the island at an elevated outlook called the “The Turret”. Vistas can be enjoyed from this outlook toward Surfers Paradise and to the hinterland. Schotia Park North has a public petangue facility where a group of enthusiasts gather to socialise and play on Tuesday afternoons. New players are warmly welcomed.

All the residences within Schotia Island are freestanding houses, which either overlook the foreshore or the parks. The residences are primarily accessed off a peripheral road called The Circle that follows the profile of the islands foreshore. Public reserves are interspersed between the houses to provide outlooks and relaxation areas to the water’s edge.

The Schotia Island body corporate committee encourages any feedback and support from residents. The Chair maintains a list of email addresses of residents who are interested in receiving occasional information. All residents are emailed annually to ask whether they wish to receive these emails.

The Committee Chair can be contacted on or by using the contact form below.
