The suburb of Merrimac is an eclectic fusion of acreage, nurseries, market gardens and paddocks, combined with a mixture of residential properties. Close to the Pacific Motorway, Robina Town Centre and schools, Merrimac remains more affordable than most other Gold Coast locations. A mix of Residential A housing enclaves and acreage properties gives Merrimac a semi-rural feel, even though it is encroached by heavily developed areas.
The wide-open spaces of Merrimac are more than likely to remain untouched, as they provide flood-mitigation benefits to the area. There are a large number of golf courses and sport facilities in the area. With rolling hills and flat plains, homes in Merrimac’s elevated positions enjoy sweeping views across the coast to the Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach skyline.
Although this suburb has historically been a popular locality for rental properties, its affordability has seen increasing numbers of first and second home buyers move into the area.
