BundallGold Coast Suburb Profile

Located in between Southport, Surfers Paradise and Benowa, Bundall is home to a number of the Gold Coast’s major landmarks.  The HOTA (formerly The Arts Centre Gold Coast) and the City Council Chambers reside there along with the Gold Coast Turf Club, the site of the annual Magic Millions Carnival. A new Cultural Precinct is also currently being developed in Evendale Parklands alongside the Arts Centre. 

Encompassed within Bundall is the smaller suburb of Sorrento, both of which are considered by Gold Coast residents to be a desirable and upmarket part of the coast, for good reason too.

With a network of manmade canals, the area is home to several exclusive waterfront properties that sell for millions. Those who make their home on the canals also enjoy the benefits of living just a few short minutes from Surfers Paradise, Chevron Island, Broadbeach Waters and the CBD.

History of Bundall

The name 'Bundall' originally came from the Aboriginal word for a species of prickly vine. The area was used for sugar cane farming as early as 1864 but as sugar growing was transferred to the northern coasts of Australia dairy farming moved in until the 1950s. As most of the area was wetlands survey work began in the 1960s and by the mid-70s the Sorrento and Bundall Waters canal estates were complete.
