Mundingburra is a residential suburb four km south-west of central Townsville. Its southern boundary is the Ross River, and its eastern boundary is the main road between central Townsville and the Ross River bridge. The road is lined with motels.

Mundingburra was named when an area between the motels strip and Wood Street was subdivided in 1877. It was mostly rural land, with the Rising Sun hotel (1875) on Ross River Road near Charters Towers Road. A rural primary school was opened just east of the hotel in 1884 and an Anglican church was opened just east of the hotel in 1902.
