Clear Island Waters

Clear Island Waters, an upmarket residential suburb on the Gold Coast, is immediately west of Mermaid Waters, north of Robina and south-west of Surfers Paradise. It was named after a rural track, Clear Island Road, which ran from Merrimac and turned north through Mermaid Waters to Miami Keys. The transformation of the rural wetlands to canal estates in the early 1990s has obliterated most of the track, and the surviving section in the west has been renamed Boowaggan Road, Merrimac.
