Gold Coast, Queensland
|LGA(s)||Gold Coast City|
Its name is believed to have derived from an Indigenous word of unknown dialect meaning "breaking waves".
Tugun is situated at the junction of the Pacific and Gold Coast highways 7 km north-west of Coolangatta and 96 km south of Brisbane, the state capital. The junction was notoriously traffic-clogged but has improved markedly upon completion of the Tugun Bypass in June 2008. Tugun is a popular holiday destination, with a number of holiday units and motels lining Tugun Beach. Tugun has a number of shops located on its Golden-Four Drive strip.
Off the coast from Tugun is the Gold Coast Desalination Plant. Other landmarks in the suburb include the Tugun Tavern, Tugun Surf Life Saving Club and Flat Rock.
