A primarily mixed-use suburb, Molendinar is home to a number of facilities and amenities both within the suburb and neighbouring areas including the Lynn Richardson community centre, numerous local heritage sites including the original Ernest Junction railway tunnel, numerous retail and commercial options both within the suburb and neighbouring borders and countless parks, reserves and green spaces dotted throughout. Molendinar is home to Trinity Lutheran College which is a privately funded school offering primary and secondary education and offers access to additional educational institutions such as Ashmore State School, Nerang State School. Nerang State High School and Keebra Park State High in neighbouring suburbs.
Molendinar’s proximity to several major transport routes including Olsen Avenue, Southport-Nerang Road, Pacific Motorway and the Smith Street Motorway make Molendinar an excellent and convenient commuter suburb. Several options of public transport are available on the border of nearby neighbouring suburbs including the Parkwood East Light Rail Station and bus services along Olsen Avenue in Ashmore.
Until 2003, Molendinar included the locality of Ernest, bounded by Smith Street, Water Drive and Ashmore Road. Ernest, mainly non-residential, was immediately west of Southport on the Gold Coast. Originally much larger, the residential portion has been severed and named Parkwood. Molendinar, to the south of Ernest, is residential, and a substantial part was built in the late 1990s. Under-regarded until then, Molendinar’s proximity to Southport and the Broadwater caused a quickening in house prices.
Neither place name is modern. The South Coast railway had stopping places at both locations, and Ernest Junction was the point of the connecting line to Southport. Both were set among dairy holdings, more or less until the closure of the lines in 1964. The Ernest industrial estate which is built around Export Drive and Production Avenue etc was begun in 1969, and a Housing Commission estate around Bloodwood Drive in Molendinar was built in the 1970s. Those houses were being resold and renovated by 2000.
North of the Commission housing is the Crestwood estate, laid out in the late 1990s, a short distance from Griffith University’s campus on the outskirts of Southport. The Catholic Aquinas secondary and Guardian Angel primary schools are in a similar proximity. Trinity Lutheran secondary and primary schools (2002) are on Molendinar’s southern border. Well set up for private schools, Molendinar’s State facilities are found outside in Southport and Ashmore. Ashmore City drive-in centre is just outside the south-east corner of Molendinar, or residents can drive past there to Southport. Local shopping is found opposite the university at Crestwood Plaza and at Bunnings warehouse.
