The Robina/Varsity Business Alliance (RBA) is the result of key businesses in the Robina/Varsity precinct coming together to provide a strong voice for the area and the businesses that operate within its boundaries.

RBA aims to solidify Robina/Varsity the primary Queensland hub for smart business, innovation, technology, education, health and economic development, thereby creating thousands of new jobs.

On behalf of all central Gold Coast City businesses, the alliance will facilitate activation of key developments in Robina/Varsity, such as City Park – an activated green heart for the city adjacent to Cbus Super Stadium modelled on the world’s great parks and incorporating sports, recreation, hotel and conference facilities.

The RBA also encourages a future connection of light rail to Robina (The Robina Link) and the connection of Varsity Lakes rail station to Gold Coast Airport.
