Helensvale is a suburb on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia and was named after Helena White. At the 2011 Census, Helensvale had a population of 15,987. [1 ]
In the next five years, Helensvale is expected to develop further as a transport hub, with the current linking of the
Gold Coast Highway and Pacific Motorway, the two most important road routes on the Gold Coast with Helensvale Railway Station at Westfield Helensvale. This will develop further with Helensvale being the terminus of the northern end of the Gold Coast Rapid Transit plan. Many current and planned Surfside bus routes also connect Helensvale with the rest of the Gold Coast.
Helensvale was the first integrated suburb built on the hinterland fringe of the Gold Coast, and welcomed its first residents in the 1980s with a shopping centre, primary and secondary state schools, golf course, parks and a bowls club.
Sport and recreation [ edit ]
A number of well-known sporting teams represent the local area, including the
Helensvale Hornets is the local rugby league club who play home games at Robert Dalley Park.
