Arundel is a Gold Coast suburb, immediately west of Labrador and generally 5 km north-west of Southport. The suburb, which began in the mid-1980s and was officially named in 1989, has grown mostly as a series of large housing estates. It is believed that the name came from a property fronting the Brisbane-Labrador Road with 'Arundel' on an arch over the driveway. The owner of the property was Dr Wallace Arthur Arundel Mackey.
