Overview

Bimbimbi House was built in the 1940s in the small fishing village of Bermagui on the far south coast, between Batemans Bay and Merimbula.

The meaning of the word Bimbimbi is “land of many birds” which is very appropriate here. With river frontage, it is set on 2.7 hectares (6.5 acres), approximately 1 acre of established gardens, inspired by Victorian landscape designer Edna Walling.

One of the area’s gracious original timber farmhouses, the timber and stone were milled and quarried from the site. The main fire place was built on its back of stone found on the property and this was installed by using block and tackle. Another of the features of Bimbimbi are the magnificent front doors and many of the front pained windows that came from the old Beechworth Hospital and Courthouse which were built in the early eighteen hundreds.The house sits comfortably into the terraced gardens which are Edna Walling influenced. Each level is divided by stone walls that were once again obtained from the property.

It was once a working B & B, whose guests have included actor Billy Connolly, singer Jimmy Little and artist Ken Done. In its history it has been the accommodation chosen by the Governor-General whilst conducting formalities locally. More regular visitors are lyrebirds, wallabies and king parrots.

As a home, it would happily accommodate two families. The main house of 530 square metres (57 squares) has five bedrooms and three bathrooms and its neighbouring cottage, two bedrooms and one bathroom with kitchen.

Bimbimbi House faces north to Mt Dromedary and overlooks rolling pasture, spotted gums and the Bermagui River. It is only a couple of minutes from town.

Bimbimbi represents the true "Gentleman’s Residence" in a sunny garden setting promoting peace and privacy.
