Bilinga, a coastal suburb, is immediately adjacent to the western edge of Coolangatta. Its inland boundary is the New South Wales border, and over half its area is taken up with the Coolangatta airport. The name is thought to have been derived from the Yugambeh Aboriginal word for bats, and it was approved as a place name in 1918.
