Emerald Lakes is centrally located in the Gold Coast region. The estuarine lake is fed brackish water from the Nerang River and is therefore, free from freshwater ‘weed’. The sailing area has a north/south aspect and the adjacent large open parklands provide mostly uninterrupted air flow.

"The main public lake is connected to the Nerang RIver via a 1650 mm pipe which takes water from the river at the top of the tide. The pipe is located in the NW corner of the lake and was tunnel-bored under the Nerang Broadbeach road. Water also enters and exits the lake via six box culverts in the SE corner of the main lake. This system creates water circulation and exchanges the total volume of the lake every 24 days, ensuring the the water quality." (Reprinted from E.L Community Bulletin Issue 17, July 2018)
