Bulimba and Hawthorne
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.
