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.
