Oxenford is a suburb on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. At the 2006 Census, Oxenford had a population of 9,007.

The suburb is bordered to the north by the Coomera River; the Pacific Motorway forms the eastern boundary. The western edge of the suburb is also bordered by the Coomera River, which can only be crossed via the Coomera River causeway. Theme parks Warner Bros. Movie World and Wet'n'Wild Water World are located within Oxenford's boundaries.

Oxenford has expanded in recent years with the subdivision Studio Village being built in the southern end of the suburb, adjacent to the two major theme parks; the subdivision itself being based around Movie World, with the street names all referring to objects or people within Hollywood and film culture.
