Interesting facts about Tugun
Tugun is a beachside suburb of the City of the Gold Coast, in the state of Queensland, Australia. Its name is believed to have derived from an Indigenous word of unknown dialect meaning "breaking waves".
Tugun is situated at the junction of the Pacific and Gold Coast highways 7 km north-west of Coolangatta and 96 km south of Brisbane, the state capital. The junction is notoriously traffic-clogged, however this situation will likely change upon completion of the Tugun Bypass by June 2008. Tugun is a popular holiday destination, with a number of holiday units and motels lining Tugun Beach. Tugun has many shops located on its Golden-Four Drive strip.
Locals fondly call Tugun, Tugz (pronounced choo-gs) and it is widely considered a 'friendly' beach, in the sense that non-local surfers are welcomed by the local surf-goers. Its post code is 4224.
It's joined to its neighbouring suburbs of Currumbin and Bilinga via the Gold Coast Oceanway.
