By Guest Styler | 31st May 2018

Boasting an impressive mixture of restaurants, cafes, beauty salons and boutiques to its name, it’s easy to see why Bulimba is one of the most enviable suburbs in Brisbane.

We took it upon ourselves to get better acquainted with some of the local businesses in the area.

Thousand Island Dressing

For more than a decade, Thousand Island Dressing has been the one-stop-shop for finding unique accessories in Brisbane. The store is big on stocking Australian made, including many local designs that can’t be found anywhere else.

With new stock arriving weekly, Fiera Boutique stocks an impressive range of homewares, gifts ideas, jewellery and clothing. The store’s point of difference is their people. Olga has been welcoming the Bulimba community to the store since opening 13 years ago. Showcasing the work of Australian designers, Fiera also prides themselves on giving back to the local community, including schools and The Hope Foundation.

The lifestyle in Bulimba just keeps getting better. It’s a destination in itself; a family-friendly village where people come to visit and don’t want to leave.

Sam Patterson, CEO of Duke Realty is all too familiar with the draw cards for buying property in the centrally-located suburb.

“Bulimba is only gaining in popularity while managing to retain its charm and character. It’s no wonder it ranks as one of Brisbane’s most desirable pockets,” he says.
