This suburb is nestled in between the busy streets of Olslen Avenue, Smith Street, Southport Nerang Rd and the Pacific Motorway. The area is a mix of residential and industrial land, in close proximity of all that the Gold Coast has to offer. The Molendinar name comes from a farm owned by George Hope called Molendinar Burn, which was inspired by a stream that ran through his town of birth, Glasgow (https://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/thegoldcoast/molendinar-history-2656.html).
In 1891, a train station was built on Hope’s land, the Molendinar station. The remains of this history are preserved in the Ernest Junction Railway Tunnel on Ashmore Rd (https://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/documents/mp/heritage-maps-molendinar.pdf).
Other amenities in the area include the Lynne Richardson Community Centre (https://lynnerichardsoncommunitycentre.com/), which was dedicated by the Gold Coast City Council in 2012.
