Geography

Maudsland is bounded on the west by the Nerang River and by the Gaven Arterial Road to the north. Maudsland Road is the main road to and through the locality. On the east, the locality is adjacent to, but does not include, the Nerang National Park.

History

Maudsland Provisional School opened on 13 October 1879 under head teacher John William Scott and became a state school on 1 January 1909. It closed on 15 April 1963 and its remaining students and its buildings were transferred to Coomera State School. The school grounds were converted to parkland by the Albert Shire Council.

Maudsland was connected to the telephone network in 1924.

Estates

Acreage estates include Huntington Downs and Tuxedo Junction, both off Maudsland Road, one of the busier and important roads in the suburb. There are also non-acreage neighbourhood estates such as Parklake and Riverstone Crossing, and Hungtington Rise is being constructed.

Facilities

There are numerous facilities in Maudsland, including a waste refuse/transfer station and a large park and playground in the estate of Parklake, with a field, barbecue and picnic facilities and play areas.

Just outside the suburb, there is a small village complex called Maudsland Village Shopping Centre. It burnt down in August 2012. There is also a liquor store, tavern and childcare centre in that precinct, next to the burned down shopping complex.

Nearby to the suburb are numerous schools and Westfield Helensvale, a large shopping centre. Also located here is the Helensvale railway station.
