Bulimba is a suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queesnsland, Australia. It is located 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) north-east of the CBD, on the southern bank of the Brisbane River, and borders Balmoral, East Brisbane, Hawthorne, and Morningside. The 2011 Australian Census recorded a population of 5,941 in the suburb however in 2015, the ABS Data Summary records Bulimba having 7,009 residents.
Bulimba is reportedly a Turrubal word used by the Coorparoo clan meaning 'place of the magpie lark'. The same word is the origin of the nearby Bulimba Creek, and of the Bulimba Reach on which the suburb is located.
Bulimba was originally inhabited by the Turrubal people, who have lived in the area for at least 20,000 years.
In the 1820s Bulimba was called Toogoolawah and was settled as a farming district, with residential subdivision commencing in the 1880s land boom. 
In 1885, the first bicycle (Safety Cycle) was built in Queensland by Reginald Blunt of Bulimba and proudly raced on by Brisbane cyclist Peter Dowd. 
Until around 1910 the area on the opposite (north) side of the Brisbane River was also called Bulimba, that area since being called Teneriffe or New Farm.
The Bulimba Memorial park is heritage listed, and was purchased in 1904 by the Balmoral Shire Council and named 'Jamieson Park' after the early Bulimba resident Robert Jamieson who originally donated approximately four hectares of land. In honour of the World War One servicemen lost in the conflict, the name of the park was changed to the Bulimba Memorial Park on 4 November 1919, trees were planted, and an honour board was mounted. Each tree was dedicated to a Bulimba serviceman, and labeled with plaques. The plaques and many of the trees are no longer there, however the Brisbane City Council and Bulimba District Historical Society are currently working on a project to replace the honour board, and plaques for those servicemen who bravely fought. 
At the end of the war, Bulimba took part in the social housing project by constructing five ANZAC cottages. The ANZAC Cottage Trust was established to assist widows and servicemen who were under financial hardship. The timber cottages were built on donated land and constructed by volunteer labour. 
Bulimba resident, Frederick Dickson (son of Queensland Premier Sir James Dickson), was best known for his position as acting judge in the Queensland Industrial Court in 1916. Frederick ordered the reinstatement and reimbursement of wages for a Queensland worker, which resulted in becoming Queensland's first dismissal case. He was also known for his involvement with the Bulimba Sailing Club.  
Bulimba State School was built in 1938. It was designed by architect Gilbert Robert Beveridge to accommodate 512 students.
Until 2015, the suburb was home to several Army Cadet Units – 12 ACU and 161 Aviation Detachment at Bulimba Barracks on Apollo Road. The Australian Government Department of Defence announced the sale of the Bulimba Barracks in March 2015 and since this time, the Brisbane City Council has engaged in consultation with the community and have amended the City Plan to support future green space initiatives along the river, housing development, and infrastructure upgrades. The Bulimba Barracks Master Plan was published in November 2015.
