The Gold Coast is a vibrant coastal city in the south-east corner of Queensland, approximately 66 kilometres south of Brisbane and immediately north of the border with N.S.W. With 57 kilometres of coastline and beyond, vast, sub-tropical rainforests with breathtaking scenery it is an amazing place to live. Now with a population of over 600,000 people, the Gold Coast has become the sixth largest city in Australia.
Mudgeeraba is a pretty, historic village which skirts the fringes of the Gold Coast and sits at the foot of the Gold Coast Hinterland – known as “the green behind the gold”, it is approximately 12 kilometres inland from the coast. Mudgeeraba is divided from the eastern side of the Gold Coast by the M1 (Pacific Motorway) just a few minutes’ drive from the huge commercial centre that is Robina, but having not lost its feeling of “country”, it encapsulates the feeling of being a million miles away from the hustle bustle of city life.
Mudgeeraba covers an area of about 1317 hectares or around 13 square kilometres (3254 acres) and has a recorded a population of 13,624 (at the 2016 Australian Census).
69% of people living in Mudgeeraba were born in Australia. The other top responses for country of birth were New Zealand 8.5%, England 6.1%, South Africa 1.7%, Scotland 0.7%, Germany 0.7%.
