Developed by the Delfin Land Lease, Varsity Lakes is a structured, well organised community of the Gold Coast. The housing estates are built surrounding the 80ha Lake Orr with the majority of the dwellings relatively new. Waterfront homes have become very popular for families with a quarter of the suburb’s population under the age of 15.
There is a free-to-join community website for Varsity Lakes residents that provides a business directory and community news. Conveniently situated close to Miami Beach and the Pacific Motorway it is only a short drive to most facilities and attractions of the Gold Coast for those fortunate enough to live here.
Varsity Lakes was originally a wetland known as Stephens Swamp, named for former Brisbane mayor and owner of the area Thomas Stephens in the 1860s. He improved the area with drains, discharging the water into nearby Tallebudgera Creek. It was not until the 1980s that Stephens began to be suburbanised with the formation of Silverbank Lake.
By the 1990s residential development had spread across half of Stephens. The suburb was renamed Varsity Lakes in 2003 to present the area with more of an upmarket image and disassociate itself with the lower socio-economic reputation attached to the name Stephens.
