NRL star Corey Thompson splashes $1.13million on a stunning Gold Coast beach house with partner Lily Walker
NRL star Corey Thompson has purchased a gorgeous beach house in the Gold Coast for a cool $1.13 million.
The Gold Coast Titans winger, 31, bought the recently renovated four-bedroom, two-bathroom property with his partner, physiotherapist Lily Walker.
The home sits at Biggera Waters some 70kms south of Brisbane, and was sold to the couple by an NRL superfan and Titans supporter, reports The Gold Coast Bulletin.

‘The seller is one of the Titans’ biggest fans,’ said Adam Phillis of Phillis Real Estate, who handled the sale.
‘He was over the moon to see his property go to Corey Thompson.’
Corey, a Queenslander, has been playing for the Titans since 2020 and recently sold a property in the Gold Coast suburb of Pimpana.
The new purchase brings Corey and Lily much closer to the beach – but it was the beautiful pool and Bali Hut the property has which helped seal the deal.

‘It was the pool that got us over the line. The house is also beautifully renovated – everything is brand new and white with the original timber floors,’ he told the publication.
There’s a tropical, resort mood to the single storey cottage, both inside and out.
Air-conditioned throughout, the high ceilings and open-plan help to create a relaxed mood while a large outdoor area makes it perfect for entertaining guests.
