Mudgeeraba & TallaiGold Coast Suburb Profile

Close to the Gold Coast yet set back on the bush covered hills that mark the start of the Hinterland, Mudgeeraba is the ‘green behind the gold’ of the coast. If you’re looking for an escape from the city life then you’ll find it here amid the native wildlife, rainforest and stunning waterfalls that characterise the Hinterland.

The area maintains a village feel and offers lovely rural, family type homes with many located on small acreages. The neighbouring suburb of Tallai sits atop the rolling hills with Mudgeeraba to share in the panoramic views of the hinterland and the golden glitz of the Coast. Located close to the M1 and Hinze Dam, and the suburbs of Robina and Merrimac, Mudgeeraba and Tallai residents enjoy the best of both worlds as they make use of the hustle and bustle of city life only to retreat to their rolling hills and tranquillity.

Mudgeeraba Show

The Mudgeeraba Show originally began as a small Fete & Flower Show over 80 years ago to raise money for improvements to the town’s Memorial Hall. Over the years the event has become an agricultural show that’s grown into a two day event with horse shows, handicrafts, exhibits, cooking and preserves, pet parades, wood-chopping, ute muster, cattle, sheep, showbags, rides and so much more. Held in July each year the Mudgeeraba Show is a great family attraction for locals and visitors alike.

Mudgeeraba was initially a cattle-run taken up back in 1852 with farm selections beginning in the late 1860s. Timber harvesting was also popular and by the 1900s there were 3 sawmills in the area as well as several dairy farms. 

Many of the older colonial houses still stand throughout Mudgeeraba and the stories of the old local dairy farmers have be recorded in a book ‘Dairies and daydreams; the Mudgeeraba story’, by Robyn Burrows.
