Bulleen is located opposite Heidelberg between the Yarra River and the Eastern Freeway.
Frederic Unwin derived the name Bulleen from a Yarra billabong. Applied initially to his 1841 Special Survey, it was also the original name for the Shire of Doncaster and Templestowe. The district’s proximity to Melbourne and its rural nature attracted John and Sunday Reed, whose farm Heide, established in 1934, was frequented by artists like Sidney Nolan and Joy Hester. The area remained rural until after World War ll when housing began to replace dairy farms and orchards.
Bulleen has Melbourne’s third highest rate of home-ownership and has attracted many Italian-born residents, whose Veneto Club opened there in 1973.
The Bulleen billabongs were an important territory for the Manna Gum people for approximately 5,000 years. Generations had lived on the river flats when wild fish and ducks were abundant. Bolin was the largest lake/billabong in the area and was a significant ritual meeting place for aborigines where numerous corroborees were held either by the billabong or on the hills. The first Bulleen Post Office opened on 1 April 1952, was named Bulleen West in 1960 and closed in 1976. Bulleen South office opened in 1959, was renamed Bulleen in 1960 and again named Bulleen South in 1969 when the current Bulleen office opened.
Bulleen had a drive-in theatre for over thirty years.
On Bulleen’s northern border is the Yarra River, which adjoins parklands, including Banksia Park with its bike paths and picnic facilities. Adjacent to Banksia Park is the newly refurbished Heide Museum of Modern Art. Other important reserves include the Bulleen Park sporting ground and, approximately in the centre of the suburb, Yarraleen and Morris Williams reserves, which offer an adventure playground and open space. To the west of Bulleen Road is the Yarra Flats Park, with bike tracks, walking tracks, picnic tables, shelter, wood barbeques, birdlife, billabongs and views of the Yarra River. Yarra Flats Park adjoins Bulleen and Banksia Parks. The Bulleen Park complex has a number of grounds suitable for Australian Rules football, cricket and soccer, as well as an archery range and model aeroplane club.
