A suburb of Gold Coast in Queensland, Helensvale is situated 60 kilometres from Brisbane and 18 kilometres from Surfer’s Paradise. Developed in the 1980s, the suburb is surrounded by parkland and borders Coombabah Lake to the east. Aside from growing close to a satellite city with various conveniences made available for its residents, Helensvale is also projected to further evolve into a transport hub in the next few years. The Helensvale Railway Station at Westfield Helensvale currently links Pacific Motorway and Gold Coast Highway, two of the most significant road routes in Gold Coast. Plans to make the suburb the terminus of the north end of the Gold Coast Rapid Transit is also on the way. Current and proposed routes of the Surfside Buslines also connect the suburb with the rest of the Gold Coast area.
