Mermaid Waters

Mermaid Waters, immediately west of Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast, is a residential suburb consisting almost entirely of canal estates and associated lakes.

Before the creation of the canal estates the land behind Mermaid Beach was flat grazing space interspersed with swamps that drained into the Little Tallebudgera Creek. The creek was joined by a drain from further inland, meeting each other near Jupiters Casino. An approximate alignment of the drain runs through Mermaid Waters' Lakes Wonderland and Intrepid.
