Just 90 minutes from Perth, Bunbury is one of the state’s largest regional cities, and the central hub of the Geographe region. Although the city oozes a cosmopolitan atmosphere, with street art and funky cafes dominating the CBD, it’s the stunning coastline, waterways and resident dolphins that will take you by surprise.

Bunbury is a great place to take a break from your journey through Australia’s South West. There are great accommodation options and plenty of unique things to do.

Surrounded on three sides by water, it’s the land side that gives Bunbury its little bit of country charm.

To the north, sitting in the foothills en route from Perth, is Harvey. The scenery is lovely here, dotted with orchards, dairy farms, natural bush and a couple of huge dams.

One of the most amazing towns of the Geographe region is Collie. A mining town with loads of history, it’s near Wellington National Park, where stunning waterways, natural swimming pools, white-water rafting, walking
and mountain biking trails draw outdoor enthusiasts.

The historic Dardanup sits to the east of Bunbury. A quaint small town with fifteen heritage sites, it acts as the gateway of the Ferguson Valley, a sub-region of the Geographe Wine Region that is fast becoming known for its food and wine, ranging from great to superb.

Further south is Donnybrook, another idyllic little town situated in the midst of orchard and wine country. Capel is found to the south of Bunbury, on the way to Busselton. A farming community, this town has a great cafe and bakery. On the seaside is one of the South West’s pioneering wineries, and the stunning Peppermint Grove Beach, full of holiday houses.

Top 5
1. Wade knee-deep in the calm waters, take an eco-cruise, or swim with the wild (yet curious) bottlenose dolphins in Koombana Bay.
2. Harvey Dam, Honeymoon Pool and Wellington National Park offer great picnic spots, with amazing scenery, great walks and free barbecues.
3. Discover the growing range of galleries, wineries and breweries in the Ferguson Valley. Time your visit for an art, wine and beer event.
4. Hire a kayak and explore the Leschenault Inlet in Australind. Teeming with bird life, dolphins and native animals, it is a nature lover’s ideal outing.
5. Try your hand at water sports, with water-skiing at Lake Stockton, stand-up paddleboarding at Koombana Bay, kitesurfing, white-water rafting and more.
