Bunbury: Escape the City Craze

Located 175 kilometres south of Perth, Bunbury is the perfect retreat for city dwellers. That is not to say that the holiday destination does not have a great deal of hustle and bustle on its own. While there is plenty to do to keep visitors and residents alike busy, the vibe throughout Bunbury is relaxed. This town is known as the City of Three Waters and is surrounded by the Indian Ocean, Koombana Bay and Leschenault Inlet. As such, much of the livelihood of the area is focused on the water. The area itself is expanding rapidly, and with the large population increase, new developments, brand-new construction houses and fantastic hotel and rental options abound.

Dive with Dolphins

Bunbury is extremely well-known for its high population of friendly dolphins. From the shore of Koombana Bay, visitors have the perfect setting to watch the dolphins frolic about in the water. Conversely, there is little better way to experience the gentle creatures than to get in the water with them. Guide-led swim tours offer an invaluable way to interact with the marine life while seeing some of Bunbury's off-land sites. Scenic dolphin cruises are also a great way to explore the bay. Check out the Dolphin Discovery Centre in Bunbury for interactive exhibits, great information about dolphins and much, much more.

Cultural Diversity

Bunbury's high value on culture sets this holiday destination apart from similar towns. There are numerous art galleries throughout Bunbury, with one of the most popular being Bunbury Regional Art Galleries. This gallery is one of the only Class A art galleries in the western portion of Australia and houses a great diversity of artwork. For art of another type, admire the architecture of the city. There are a great number of historically significant buildings, with some dating back to the mid 1800s. Some of the most well-known structures include the post office, a museum, a hotel and one of the oldest churches in Western Australia. Throughout the city, there are places to see artwork being made, and there are public artworks throughout Bunbury.

Commune with Nature

Marvel at the breathtaking scenery that surrounds Bunbury by travelling up to the Marlston Hill Lookout Tower. The tower provides 360-degree views and is a fantastic place from which to watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean. Below, the beaches are picturesque. Long stretches of white sand pair with sparkling azure waters. Back Beach has lovely rock formations and steady surfs. The beach is great for experienced swimmers and for water sports. Hungry Hollow Beach is much calmer and includes a reef right off the coast, so bring along snorkelling or diving gear. One of the must-sees in this town, however, is Mangrove Cove. Here, a long boardwalk makes it possible for visitors to walk near 25,000-year-old Leschenault mangroves. There is a high wildlife population in the area, includes many species of bird.

As specified the house was sparkling clean and Julie had gone above and beyond with personal touches. With a very convenient location, just a short stroll to the main street for a meal or general shopping, we can't wait to get back to Bunbury to stay here again. Thank you for your hospitality Julie.

The mattresses were exceptionally comfortable and the living areas were really great. It was so relaxing having a BBQ and sitting by the dining table with the large backyard. We had some awesome matches of table tennis too. It was close enough to the city and when we caught a cab out is was only just over $10. Really can't recommend this house enough. Cheers to Dayle.
