Meaning & History
Kirra is a beach-side suburb on the Gold Coast in Queensland which has been popular with holidaymakers since the early 20th century. The name of the suburb is believed to be an Indigenous name, however the specific language and meaning are unknown. It was possibly derived from the Yuggera language in which kaiyar means "white cockatoo" or the Kabi language, in which kirran means "fire". It may also have been named after the boomerang.
