Bulimba Balmoral Hawthorne

Updated on October 24, 2013

Bulimba, Balmoral & Hawthorne

Bulimba, Balmoral & Hawthorne form one of the most picturesque parts of Brisbane with Morningside to the South. Bulimba is now a trendy suburb as it is close to Brisbane City Centre by car and a quick ferry ride to Newfarm, with the ferry terminal right next to Newfarm Park.

The main street of Bulimba is Oxford Street. Oxford street is home to many modern cafe's and shops and even has a Cineplex cinema. Oxford street is not all shops though. It has the large "Bulimba Memorial Park" fairly well central in the street. The park offers a scenic open space and breaks up the retail and cafe aspect of Bulimba. At the end of Oxford Street is the Jetty opening on to the Brisbane River and the ferry terminal to take you across the river to Newfarm or to the City, Southbank or any other river destination.

St John's Bulimba

St John The Baptist Church is also in Oxford Street Bulimba. It is an Anglican church situated in the heart of Bulimba between the cafe's. St Johns gives a nice break to the cafe's and shops. St Johns was built in September 1888, Only 30 years after the settlement of Brisbane.

If you are a regular church goer or lucky enough to be at St Johns on a Sunday before church starts you will hear the St John's Church Bell. The bell is from the ship SS MAHENO blown ashore on Fraser Island, off the Queensland coast.

Bulimba barracks is well known as as army cadet training area. It is the home to cadets from 12 ACU and 161 Aviation Detachment. While it is not a very large barracks, it is right on the Brisbane river with access for ships.

There has been some talk about the site redevelopment as it is well sought after land. The land is owned by the Australian defense force and to date the barracks are safe from becoming townhouses.
