About Bunbury

Bunbury is not known internationally as a must-see destination - but it should be. It provides a bio-diversity playground for anyone who visits. Travel in any direction and you will be encapsulated by its beauty and completely spoilt for choice when it comes to things to do and see. Take the scenic route to Perth just an hour and a half up the road and explore the bustling capital of Western Australia. Or travel south to immerse yourself in everything the world-famous Margaret River Region has to offer. If you don’t fancy taking a trip, stay in Bunbury to see the wild but friendly bottlenose dolphins who base their home at your local beach.

Bunbury and the surrounding region offers everything you want, and boasts pristine white beaches, award-winning wineries and waterfront restaurants. There is a diverse range of outdoor activities available from action packed water sports and mountain biking to relaxing walks through picturesque nature trails.
