Clagiraba is a suburb of Gold Coast City, Queensland, Australia approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast's hinterland. At the 2011 Australian Census the suburb recorded a population of 561.
It is nestled between Mount Nathan and Witheren and also encompasses the southern end of Tamborine Mountain. Though zoned rural, it is a comparatively short (10-15 minute) drive to more populous suburbs such as Nerang, Oxenford and Pacific Pines. It is approximately a 30 minute drive to many of the Gold Coast region's beach destinations such as Surfers Paradise, Main Beach and the Spit.
Clagiraba is named from Clagiraba Creek, a tributary of the Coomera River. The name Clagiraba is derived from the indigenous name 'Kalagareebah' meaning young or single men's ground. This was a region where young indigenous men were taken during their initiation ceremony.
