Description

Bulleen is an inner eastern suburb in Melbourne, Australia, 13 km north-east of the Melbourne central business district. Its local government area is the City of Manningham. At the 2016 Census, Bulleen had a population of 10,873. # History ## Pre European settlement 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 the aborigines, where numerous corroborees were held either by the billabong or on the hills. But by 1841, manager and protector of the aborigines William Thomas received different orders. ## Post-European settlement In 1841 Frederic Unwin, a Sydney solicitor, purchased 5,120 acres, or eight square miles of land, including all of the present suburb of Bulleen.The land was purchased from the Crown for one pound an acre under the terms of the short-lived Special Survey regulations. The area was sometimes known as Unwin's Special Survey. The first Bulleen Post Office opened on 1 April 1952, was renamed 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. # Weather # Things to do 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 Heide Museum of Modern Art. Other important reserves include the Bulleen Park sporting grounds and approximately in the centre of the suburb, Yarraleen and Morris Williams reserves, which offer an adventure playground and general open space. To the west of Bulleen Road is the Yarra Flats Park, with bike tracks, walking tracks, picnic tables, shelter, wood barbecues, birdlife, wild berries, 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. The Yarraleen Cricket Club, which plays in the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association, is located in the Bulleen Park pavilions at the rear of the complex.
