Looking out at the crystal blue Indian Ocean, the port city of Bunbury is one of Western Australia's most popular tourist destinations, situated 175 kilometres (109 mi) south of the capital, Perth. Although central to the commerce of the South West, Bunbury is known for its laid-back lifestyle. Bunbury has all of the postcard-worthy features WA has to offer – pristine beaches, crystal clear oceans and cloudless blue skies. With the best of both worlds, it has the feel of a great country town with all of the luxuries of a modern metropolis. There's so much to see and do within the town itself, all year round.
Bunbury's cappuccino strip gives you the perfect way to start any day: with a good cup of coffee. For more tantalising food and drink, you can head out to the beautiful Ferguson Valley for its world class restaurants, wineries and breweries. For the experience of a lifetime, visit the Dolphin Discovery Centre, where you can experience friendly dolphins up close in the wild. After a day of sun and sights, why not add to the fun with a visit to the Bunbury Bowling Club. For the wild at heart, the high-octane sights, sounds and smells of Bunbury Speedway are at your disposal.
The region is home to some of the best music and arts festivals in the country. The annual Groovin' The Moo (GTM) festival brings the world's best bands, and crowds from across Australia, to Bunbury for an exciting weekend. For visual art and photography lovers, the Dardanup Art Spectacular is a popular event that hosts a series of exhibitions and competitions over the course of a month each year. As well as festivals and feature events, Bunbury is home to some great restaurants, pubs, bars and clubs that you can enjoy every night of the year.
