Worongary and Tallai

Worongary and Tallai are adjoining rural/residential districts in the Gold Coast hinterland, immediately north and west of Mudgeeraba and 10 km west of Mermaid Beach.

Worongary is the more populous of the two, and it was a railway stopping place on the South Coast railway line (1903). It is thought that its name was derived from an Aboriginal word describing an indigenous vine or the flight of a pigeon. The Worongary Creek drains into the lakes in Clear Island Waters.
