Whilst this industry is all but gone, state government legislation ensures the wetlands will remain an undeveloped "Green Space" (See Qld Plan).HistoryThe name Bli Bli is believed to be derived from the Kabi word bilai meaning sheoak tree (Casuarina glauca).Bli Bli Provisional School opened on 2 April 1901, becoming a State School in 1909.The first Bli Bli Post Office opened by March 1903 (a receiving office had been open from 1898) and closed in 1954. The current Bli Bli Post Office opened on 1 October 1987.In March 1973, Bli Bli Castle was opened. The Norman/medieval-style castle was built as a tourist attraction.
