The northern boundary of the area runs from the southern Nerang Riverbank to the Gold Coasts Arts Centre. It then continues south, bordering the present day Village High Road, alongside Benowa. The locality of Sorrento is within the Southern section of the Suburb of Bundall.

Bundall is also the home of the Bundall Iceland Ice Rink, home of the Bartercard Gold Coast Blue Tongues[1] ice hockey club, Queensland's only team in the Australian Ice Hockey League.
