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.
