About Varsity Lakes
Varsity Lakes is a suburb of the City of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. This suburb was originally known as Stephens, but in 2002, Stephens, Andrews and a section of Robina were amalgamated to form the new suburb of Varsity Lakes. The 2011 census reported a population of 14,366 for the area.
In 1873 Thomas Blacket Stephens purchased 6980 acres of the Gold Coast hinterland and would name the area Merrimac Estate. In 1981 the Minister for Environment, Valuation and Administrative Services renamed the area Stephens after Thomas Blacket. In 1999 the area between Stephens and Robina was purchased by Delfin Lend Lease and development on the area named Varsity Lakes began. Man made lakes named Lake Orr and Lake Azzura were created and residential development followed. The success of the newly created area resulted in the suburbs Stephens, Andrews and some parts of Robina joining together in 2002 to become a new suburb named Varsity Lakes.
