Bundall is bounded by the Slayter Road to the north (), Bundall Road to the east (), Nerang River to the south-east and south (), and an unnamed canal from the Nerang River to the south-west and west ().
Sorrento is a neighbourhood within the south of Bundall (). It takes its name from a canal real estate development on the Nerang River that created 800 waterfront blocks and 400 "dry" blocks. The northernmost part of the suburb near the canals is also used for housing. There are commercial buildings to the north of Ashmore Road and the west of Bundall Road. The centre of the suburb provides a range of civic infrastructure including Southport Racecourse (with naming rights as Aquis Park ) and associated businesses and the Benowa Effluent re-pump station, part of the city's sewage and recycled water infrastructure ().
The name Bundall is from the Aboriginal word for a species of prickly vine. The area was originally settled by British landowner Edmund Henry Price in 1862. He established the Bundall sugarcane plantation. The sugarcane was crushed at the Benowa sugar mill. Subsequently, the land was used for dairy farming, until it was developed for urban use.
Bundall Provisional School opened on 21 September 1885. It was renamed Benowa Provisional School in November 1900. On 1 January 1909 it became Benowa State School.
In 1965 a group of Greek residents of the Gold Coast formed the Greek Orthodox Community of St Anna (Gold Coast and Districts) with the ambition of establishing a Greek Orthodox Church. In 1978, the first St Anna Greek Orthodox Church was built on land donated by Greek entrepreneur Peter Vaggelas to fulfill a pledge that his wife Betty had made to St Anna during the difficult birth of their daughter. The present St Anna's Church at 31A Crombie Avenue was built on land donated by Jim Raptis, President of the Greek Community.
