Bulimba

With features reminiscent of an old fishing town, the quaint riverside suburbs of Bulimba and Hawthorne combine village charm with contemporary elegance. Oxford Street pulses during the day with designer clad mums and bubs spending time between shopping in the eclectic boutiques and enjoying cappuccinos in the chic cafes.

The elaborate timber grandstand in Bulimba Memorial Park is as endearing as the old-style heritage ferry terminal that stands by the river to welcome visitors and the historic sandstone Bulimba House, built in 1850, proudly watches over the hilly streets.

Bulimba and Hawthorne are also home to classic old cinemas, art galleries, book stores, alfresco eateries and beautifully renovated Queenslanders, making this former sugar cane and pineapple growing district a great place to visit and explore.

Bulimba: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Oxford Street Bulimba


Embracing Brisbane's sun-filled outdoor lifestyle, Bulimba is a sprawling precinct home to quiet leafy streets and green spaces perfect for picnicking. At the heart of this laid back precinct is Oxford Street, which leads you past a vibrant assortment of shops, cafes, homeware and fashion stores down to a tranquil riverside setting, where CityCats and ferries come and go.

Take a stroll along Oxford Street to discover bustling breakfast bars, boutiques brimming with treasures and local institutions like the Balmoral Cineplex cinemas, where you can still see a movie for less than $10.

Bulimba Memorial Park


Take a close look at the sprawling weeping figs on trendy Bulimba's Oxford Street: they are what's left of a living tribute to serviceman killed in action in WWI. The trees, planted between 1919 and 1923, flanked three sides of the memorial park, dedicated in November 1919. Name plaques were once attached.

A wrought iron arch bearing the words 'Memorial Park' presents a formal gateway to the park and a lectern-like concrete pillar bears a brass memorial plaque to the soldiers, sailors and nurses of Bulimba who enlisted.

Local fundraising also enabled the park's two-storeyed grandstand to be built, in 1923, as a further memorial. Its architect is thought to have been GMH Addison who designed the ferry terminal building at the end of Oxford Street. The 4.6ha park is a popular place for family outings, picnickers and sport year-round.

Newstead Park Memorials


Newstead Park, on Brisbane River, conceals many stories-including its part in WWI. A memorial trophy cannon unveiled near the rotunda in 1922 caused controversy: an alderman suggested it was an 'emblem of evil' and that the money would be better spent supporting returned servicemen. The cannon was removed in the 1950s, donated to the 9th Battalion-and made way for the Australian American Memorial, one of only two such memorials in Australia, attesting to Brisbane's importance in the Allied victory in the South-West Pacific.

The grounds of Newstead House, Brisbane's oldest surviving residence, also hosted fundraising efforts during WWI. A dolls' carnival in 1917 was a special drawcard, raising money to send 'comforts' to the troops in the trenches, specifically the 25th Battalion.

Newstead House was occupied by the US Army from 1942 through to the end of WWII. The grounds reflect the American occupation and hold memorials to the Australian Navy Corvettes, submariners and Vietnam veterans.

Newstead House


Historic Newstead House is Brisbane's best-known heritage site open for public inspection, offering a number of unique experiences befitting Brisbane's oldest domestic dwelling. The building, dating from 1846, has evolved from a simple Colonial Georgian cottage into the quintessential homestead of today - a style of architecture that draws as its inspiration the bungalow found on the Indian sub-continent.

Brisbane Powerhouse


Nestled on the beautiful banks of Brisbane River (beside New Farm Park) the former power station has become a distinct landmark, both as a stunning industrial creation and as a hub for everything creative.

The Brisbane City Council New Farm Powerhouse was designed by Brisbane City Council Tramway architect, Roy Rusden Ogg. At its peak in the post-war years it supplied electricity for the largest tram network in the southern hemisphere. As trams were replaced by buses, it was decommissioned in 1971.

The redeveloped Brisbane Powerhouse was designed by Brisbane City Council architect Peter Roy and was opened on 10 May, 2000 by Lord Mayor Jim Soorley. Seven years later the building underwent a further stage of development, re-opening on 6 June 2007 by Lord Mayor Campbell Newman with increased audience capacities, restaurant and bar facilities as well as functions and conference spaces.

Brisbane Powerhouse boasts a flexible 400 - 700 seat 'end on' stage theatre, an intimate 200 seat apron stage theatre, an 800 viewer open platform, two restaurants, conference and rehearsal rooms and offices.

Brisbane Powerhouse is a not-for-profit organisation owned and supported by the Brisbane City Council.

Bulimba: Events

Hawthorne Twighlight Markets


Almost 30 years ago an idea was born that was to change Brisbane. Foodie, commentator and city doyenne Jan Power decided to forge the first Farmers Markets, putting pay to her passion for fresh produce, and her commitment supporting farmers and their livelihoods.

The first Jan Powers Farmers Markets came to colourful and loud life at the Brisbane Powerhouse site; and today, almost a full generation later, Brisbane is a city indelibly inked with love for Farmers Markets.

Jan singularly pushed City regulations again and again to sow the seed of Farmers Markets, and educate Brisbane of the provenance of their food. Now, there is a Jan Powers Farmers Markets every single Saturday somewhere in Brisbane, a market on Sundays in Mitchelton, and a weekly City Markets in Reddacliff Place that attracts some 5,000 city workers and residents!
