Biggera Waters

Biggera Waters, on the Gold Coast, is a residential suburb with some canal estates. It is 5 km north of Southport and looks out over Broadwater to the southern end of South Stradbroke Island. It was named after the Biggera Creek, a short stream with headwaters at the back of Labrador. The name is thought to have been derived from an Aboriginal word referring to the red ironbark tree. Before being developed for residential purposes the locality was known as Anglers Paradise, which is now part of the adjoining suburb of Runaway Bay.
