BundallGold Coast Suburb Profile
Hiding just behind Southport, Bundall is home to a number of the Gold Coast’s major landmarks. The HOTA (formerlly 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.
With the 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 still enjoy the benefits of living just a few short minutes from Surfers Paradise and the CBD.

History of Bundall
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.
