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.
Helensvale has been planned to develop as a
transport hub. The Gold Coast Highway and Pacific
Motorway, the two most important road routes on
the Gold Coast, link here.
Helensvale includes a railway station and bus
interchange. An extension to the G:link light rail
system is proposed to terminate at Helensvale
station. It would operate to the current terminus at
Gold Coast University Hospital and then via the
existing line to Southport, Surfers Paradise and
Broadbeach. The extension is expected to open
before the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
