Clagiraba is 25 kilometres (16 mi) west of Surfers Paradise in the Gold Coast's hinterland.
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 (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.
At the 2011 Australian Census the suburb recorded a population of 561.
