Worongary is a rural residential area in Gold Coast. The suburb was named after an Aboriginal word that means “flight of a pigeon”, while others say that the name describes an indigenous vine. The residential area of Worongary was first subdivided in 1979, with some properties spread out along ridges. The magnificent views and cool breeze in the area keep the property prices high. The area’s primary school was established in 1993. The suburb is served by the Worongary Village shopping centre, which was opened in 2004. Worongary is also home to the Mudgeeraba Pony Club located at the boundary of Worongary and Mudgeeraba.
