AQUA looks over the southern entrance to the Broadwater, which spans over 19 km and is the connection between the Nerang River and the Pacific Ocean. Fantastic views over Wavebreak Island and the Spit can be seen by all residents.
The entrance of the Nerang River was at Main Beach in the late 19th century but by the 1980s had moved about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) northwards. The Gold Coast Seaway was completed in 1986 to stabilise the location of the Nerang River Entrance.
Towards the northern end of the Broadwater the Pimpama River enters. The Broadwater is very large and contains lots of species of marine life.
