Location Description

Nerang lies between the ocean and the mountains and between Brisbane and the Gold Coast and sits on the river that carries its name.

It was settled in 1863 and its name is said to come from the Aboriginal term meaning 'little'. Today Nerang and nearby Carrara are far from little, as they move towards their destiny and become busy commercial and retail centres of the Gold Coast.


The Hinze Dam is 600 metres long and holds 163,500 mega litres of water. Apart from its practical use in supplying the growing Gold Cost region with fresh water, it's a popular picnic spot.

At the Gold Coast War Museum, you can see tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery, firearms, and memorabilia from every war in which Australia has played a part.


Shopping can be done locally at the Nerang River Plaza or further afield at one of the larger centres such as Australia Fair, Southport.

There are some restaurants locally, mostly of the takeaway variety. More choice can be found at Southport and Chevron Island.

The nearest cinema is the Nerang Cinema Complex located in Earle Plaza, Cnr Price and White St’s. With larger complex’s located at Australia Fair, Southport and Robina Town Centre, Robina.
