Reedy Creek is a suburb in the City of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.[2] In the 2016 census, Reedy Creek had a population of 6,659 people.[1]

Geography[]

Located in the hinterland towards the southern end of the city, Reedy Creek is a developing residential area.

The suburb is bounded to the north-east by the Pacific Motorway (M1), to the east by Old Coach Road, then follows the ridgeline around to the north-west and then loosely follows Eden Valley Road back to the M1.[3]

The elevation rises from 10 metres (33 ft) above sea level in the north of the suburb to over 190 metres (620 ft) in the south of the suburb at the end of Abbey Ridge Road. Reedy Creek rises in the south of the suburb and flows through it, exiting it to the north-east under the M1 into Varsity Lakes.[3]

The land use is predominantly residential with the school facilities in the north of the suburb closer to the M1. Due to the hilly terrain and the creeks that flow through it, there is some undeveloped land.[3]
