Situated two and half hours drive south of Perth, Bunbury offers visitors a host of experiences with natural attractions, water activities, culture, entertainment and recreation all at your fingertips.
Surrounded by water with the ocean, bay and inlet all within easy reach, Bunbury makes the perfect holiday spot for canoeing, rafting and kayaking.
Snorkelling and diving are also popular pastimes in Bunbury with the Lena Dive Wreck a big favourite. Apprehended by the Australian Navy in 2002 for illegal fishing the Lena was sunk three nautical miles off the coast the next year. Now the wreckage is home to an abundance of marine life.
Stretching 1.8 kilometres the Bunbury Jetty is a popular spot to drop in a line with fisherman visiting the jetty daily in the hopes of catching an evening feast. Here you may even be lucky enough to see a pod of bottlenose dolphins frolicking in the waters.
Koombana Bay is home to over 100 bottlenose dolphins and the Dolphin Discovery Centre in Bunbury is committed to the research, education and conservation of these remarkable mammals. The four storey centre offers an amazing experience for young and old with interactive activities on each level including in the shallow waters out the front of the building where you can stand knee deep as the dolphins swim past an arms length away.
