Owner / Manager

Everything in The Gardens at Bullimah relates back to the gardens.

This is a family garden stretching across approximately twenty five acres (or 10 hectares ) of ex-farm land which has required many, many years of loving work to restore the soil and growing conditions.

The Gardens at Bullimah is nestled between rolling farmlands and an Old School Site. The old school site once housed the local school house which was surrounded in its own delightful garden of the time.

When we first arrived we noticed jonquils and other spring bulbs, a reminder of a happy school garden, popping up in our own developing gardens. We loved the giant Morten Bay Figs and old Pines that we knew could tell stories of bygone school days and it helped to inspire us to create a little of our own history.

Our garden spaces have been beautifully designed by ‘Patrick O’Neil Designs’.

Patrick studied Garden Design at the prestigious English Gardening School in Chelsea, under the tutelage of prominent English gardening doyen Rosemary Alexander.

Patrick’s designs in The Gardens at Bullimah fuse timeless materials and classic styling with contemporary approaches to ecological planting design. His work is a reflection of where our family heart lies.
Not long after purchasing the property we noticed a cleared section of bushland that remained green throughout summer. After some initial clearing, a small, rectangular and largely rotted wooden well was discovered. Our children found and collected fragments of china, pottery, and many small coloured bottles from the area around the well. After some discussion with long-term residents of the Lake Powell area, it was discovered that in the early 1900’s, Chinese workers who had come south to work on the Elleker to Nornalup Railway line, had camped around the area. They became known for the small market gardens they grew to supplement their specific food requirements. The land now known as Bullimah (meaning ‘a piece or place of heaven’) had its gardening history born in those hard working immigrants. We feel it is an honour to be able to recreate the use of some of this land for the production of fresh and healthy produce that we can share with you.

We have called our stunning reception venue ‘POTTER’S WELL’ in honour of the first gardeners of Bullimah.

The name just seems to fit perfectly.

The first house we built is where our children’s childhood memories were made. That house has since been replaced with the beautiful Bullimah Homestead where you and your wedding party can enjoy some simple elegance.
