Suburb Profile

Bilinga is a quaint beachside suburb on the southern end of the Gold Coast. Located a stones throw from the Gold Coast Airport, staying in Bilinga means you can hop straight off a flight and into paradise without any hassle. Just around the bend from this area you’ll find the world famous stretch of beaches in Coolangatta, including Kirra, Greenmount and Snapper Rocks.

Bilinga was located on the Nerang-Tweed Railway line and, after the Crown Land auctions, a rail siding was approved for the site in 1919.

By 1923 the nucleus of settlement had formed when Percy Henzel opened a general store near the rail siding.

By the late 1920s, the new coastal motor road improved access to the area for holiday makers and residents.
