About Clear Island Waters

Clear Island Waters is a suburb of the City of Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Clear Island Waters had a population of 4,120 people.

The suburb is a mid-to-high socioeconomic residential area surrounding the artificial canals of Clear Island Lake and Boobegan Creek.[citation needed]

The area that is now Clear Island Waters was a dairy community in the south and rural wetlands in the north in the early stages of the 20th century.[citation needed]

The suburb began to build a reputation as an exclusive and upper class area in 1967 when property developer Bruce Small, who became Gold Coast Mayor later that year, convinced a group of wealthy golfers to purchase his 92-acre landholding at Cypress Gardens for $43,240 to build the Surfers Paradise Golf Club.

In 1976, a group of Gold Coast-based Italian families established the Italo-Australian Club on a block of land adjacent to the Surfers Paradise Golf Club and the venture led to an influx of Italian families moving to the suburb. In 1986, St Vincent's aPrimary School relocated from Surfers Paradise to Clear Island Waters and the Sacred Heart Parish Church was opened next to the primary school after the parish priest Dr Owen Oxenham initiated the move.

Developers began to take a keen interest in the suburb in the early 1990s when approval was gained to build multiple canal estates known as Island Quay, Rhode Island and Santa Cruz. The clientele then transformed from mostly successful business people to more lawyers and medical professionals in the decades that followed.

In the 2011 census, Clear Island Waters recorded a population of 3,986 people, 52.6% female and 47.4% male. The median age of the Clear Island Waters population was 49 years, 12 years above the national median of 37. 56.7% of people living in Clear Island Waters were born in Australia.
