Beside the river, with colonial cottages, good coffee, bookstores, bars, fine food and an art-house cinema, Bulimba is a place where anyone would be lucky to live. Four kilometres from the city and with all of the amenities you could ever need, it’s clear why Bulimba suits young and established professionals.

With a mix of heritage style and contemporary elegance, Oxford Street is Bulimbas main shopping, eating and meeting strip. The whole village is pet and family friendly: theres a dog park at the end of Addison Avenue and great playgrounds at Bulimba Memorial Park on Oxford Street and Bulimba Riverside Park (with views over to the woolstores of Teneriffe).

Life is cooler here – in both senses of the word. Bulimba is bordered on two sides by the Brisbane River, so afternoon breezes regularly chase the summer heat away. The homes here take advantage of the river-aspect, with the majority of homes having broad verandahs, balconies and bay windows.

Renovated Queenslanders, colonial and post-war cottages and a few boutique apartment blocks all line the streets of Bulimba, nestled behind large jacaranda and fig trees. Bulimba has everything you need for a great lifestyle – food, shopping, entertainment and fun for the entire family – all without leaving its leafy streets. Sure, you might have to force yourself to leave to go to work on Monday, but you will always be happy to come home to Bulimba.
