"Stop closing the jetties you w***ers"

Bunbury is not a tourist destination. It is for the sports nuts, the rich with boats to more off the once fishing and crabbing jetties and dont forget the meth atticts. Rated 1 star because there isn't the option for less

"Bunbury a work in progress."

Moved here with my young family 19 yrs ago from the Eastern states. For the first 6 months I cried every day that I had made a huge mistake.. Bunbury is not like any other town.. at the time there were roster systems for petrol, which to an out sider who didnt know the lay of the land was like following a treasure map, that always sent you to where the treasure HAD been the week before. But since then I have fallen in love with Bunbury and its quirks ways. Although I do miss the extended hours trading. Im happy to say that in 19yrs I have only been back to Vic 3 times to visit family, I make them come to beautiful Bunbury to visit me...

"Large city with further growth expected"

Bunbury is 175 kms south of Perth and is the third largest city in WA. Bunbury is a port city and apart from the farming and timber industries in the area, Bunbury also has a large administrative area. Tourism is big in the area and the town profits from the influx of tourists each year. The town is well serviced by bus and train links to Perth daily and local bus services for travel around town, school and special services. Bunbury has large shopping centres offering supermarkets, department stores, boutique and specialty stores. There are many restaurants and take away food outlets as well as the popular fast food chains. Take your choice of schools here with both state and private primary and secondary schools as well as preschools and daycare centres. Sport is big in Bunbury with many playing fields, swimming pools and indoor recreation venues. There are all kinds of sporting clubs and associations covering many sports. Bunbury has a large and fast growing population and many new housing sub divisions are being opened up as the town spreads. Prices for homes have risen dramatically in the past few years and rental prices are also reflecting this growth.

"A spread out town with plenty of water access. Don't miss the dolphins."

Bunbury is in a rather unusual situation in that it is has water on three sides of the township. As could possibly be expected in this area, there is a natural attraction for dolphins to laze around waiting to be noticed. They are abundant in this area and often found in Koombana Bay.

Also in abundance are the native birds, tourtoise and wildlife. You do not have to travel far to see any of these attractions and if you live there you will get to make many acquaintances with the local animals.

There is so much coastline that you do not have to go very far to be able to throw in a line. As with most coastal towns and cities the fishing is excellent.

In Spring time the countryside changes as the wild flowers of the west come out in abundance. Western Australia is known for its wild flowers and there are some truly magnificent sites to see.

If you are into walking, you won't be disappointed in the number of parks that you can walk through or ride through.

Bunbury is a great destination for either summer holidays for for weekends away from Perth. Many Perth residents will slip down to Bunbury for a long weekend.
