BIMER (pronounced “Beamer”) is an aboriginal name for Moreton Bay Fig. This magnificent tree is a distinctive part of Brisbane’s flora; and their huge crowns provided shelter for this region’s earliest inhabitants – the aborigines. It is therefore considered to be an appropriate symbol for our Club.

The aim of the Club is to provide a sheltering umbrella for motivated people with an interest in Bonsai, and to develop and enjoy their hobby/art with other enthusiasts. The Fig is also an excellent species for Bonsai cultivation by both beginners and experienced Bonsai hobbyists alike.

The Bimer Club meets once a month in Chermside West.  Please see the Contact Us page for meeting details or to get in touch with us.
