Carrara Suburb Profile
The name Carrara comes from an Aboriginal word ‘Karara’ meaning ‘long flat’. Located on the southern bank of the Nerang River east of Nerang, the Carrara area was originally part of the Manchester Cotton Company’s cotton plantation established in the first part of the 1860s.
Carrara is the hub of 6 golf courses, making it a golfer’s utopia!
