Advancetown is a small outer locality of City of Gold Coast in South East Queensland, Australia. It is situated in the Gold Coast hinterland. At the 2011 Census the population was 352.
The area first attracted timber-cutters in the 1870s because of the abundant supply of good quality timber. In 1881 David Yuan established at saw mill and European settlement began. A small settlement sprang up as a rest point for the bullock teams hauling timber to the railway at Nerang. As late as the 1930s, there were still up to 24 bullock teams operating in the area.
