Gateway to Southwestern Australia

Bunbury is the gateway to the Southwest region of Western Australia, one of the world’s biodiversity hot spots and a wildly beautiful place. Climb over the ancient rocks of the Granite Skywalk. Uncover curious animals and rare plant species found nowhere else on earth. Or just have a glass of merlot—the rich variety of soil in nearby Margaret River makes this a wine-diversity hot spot as well.

Keep a lookout for wild bottlenose dolphins right off the shores of stunning Koombana Bay. Or visit one of Bunbury’s highlights the Dolphin Discovery Centre, where you can swim with them, book an eco-cruise around them, or stay on the beach and wade into the middle of them. And for surfers, the area is known internationally as one of the best big-wave surfing locations on earth.

Should you prefer an out-of-water experience, there’s Wardandi Memorial Park for insight into Bunbury’s Aboriginal culture and history. And Bunbury Regional Art Galleries, housed in an old pink convent, for indigenous Noongar art.

Back Beach is the perfect place to stroll along with your toes in the surf, to do some sunbathing, go for a swim, or simply site back, relax, and watch the sun sink into the turquoise blue water.
