Laying claim to some of Brisbane’s highly prized riverside, Bulimba packs a real punch when it comes to suburban living. Bordered on two sides by the Brisbane River and within easy reach of the city, Bulimba has established a lifestyle that keeps locals local and has Brisbanites popping by for a taste of the good life.
Family and pet-friendly, the village along Oxford Street is the main eating and meeting hub, with curbside cafés, bakeries, boutique shopping and an arthouse cinema. Come nightfall the select bars and pubs become the focal point. The village’s enduring charm and neighbourly vibe cements the area’s reputation for being a suburb that enjoys a laid-back, yet elegant, lifestyle.
Steps away from the village is heritage-listed Bulimba Memorial Park, home to the local football club and a popular haunt for picnickers and families who love taking advantage of the playground and shade of the big fig trees. Come game time, seats in the historic grandstand are highly prized. If it’s water views and a cooling breeze you’re after, Riverside Park and Vic Lucas Park are the go-to parklands for weekend barbeques and waterside walking trails.
Streets lined with beautiful jacarandas and fig trees go hand in hand with renovated Queenslanders and colonial cottages with wrap around verandahs and bay windows – all exuding a charm of quiet suburban living. More recently though, boutique apartments have been constructed, capitalising on views or, at the very least, glimpses of the river.
All of this charm aside, Bulimba also comes out on top when it comes to location. It is moments from the Brisbane CBD – which can easily be accessed by two ferry services, the CityCat and CityFerry – and a quick 15-minute commute to the airport. It really is no surprise that once in locals tend to stay for the long haul.
With not too many reasons to leave, and every reason to stay, Bulimba is where people go for a relaxed lifestyle with all the conveniences.
