98 - Nerang / Nerang Creek / Narang Creek / Nerang Creek Township

Nerang Creek post office, 8 km west south west of Southport opened on 1 January 1866. It was renamed Narang Creek during that year before reverting back to Nerang Creek in 1869. The post office was closed and moved to the nearby Nerang Creek Township where it opened on 17 February 1874. The post office name reverted back to Nerang Creek in 1875 and in 1877 was changed to Nerang. However, the Nerang datestamp was not issued until some time in the early 1900s
