The largest city outside of Perth, Bunbury is the gateway to the South West and centre of commerce for the region.
A modern city with all variety of businesses a city needs, Bunbury may not be large by world standards but provides the vibrancy of a city with the relaxed, laid-back air of a prosperous country town.
Set upon a picturesque estuary where it meets the ocean, Bunbury is bounded on two sides by water, and on the others by farmland and bush, providing a variety of picturesque and attractive settings. Bunbury is also an ideal base from which to head out to the Ferguson Valley, Donnybrook, Capel and Australind.
The Marlston Waterfront precinct is a quite new esplanade featuring bars, restaurants and cafes overlooking beautiful Koombana Bay, while one of the popular shopping and cafe strips is Victoria Street.
