Living in Bulimba
Living in Bulimba means having the Brisbane river right at your doorstep. The suburb has a strong village atmosphere with all the trees, the river and the quiet vibe. On the right side of the river is the lively city of Brisbane just 20 minutes away from Bulimba. You can also take the CityCat to get to the city. Many of the residents consider Bulimba as an “inner-city island.” With the river in between, residents enjoy the best of both worlds, proximity and separation.
Most properties in the suburb have their own terrace, balcony, verandah or bay window that gives people a beautiful view of the city skyline and the river. During the summer, residents and visitors are still able to stroll around with the breeze from the river pushing the heat away.
