About Bunbury

The City of Bunbury is Western Australia’s biggest regional city with a population of around 68,000 people. It is situated 175 kilometres south of Perth's central business district. The first registered sighting of Bunbury was by French explorer Captain Louis de Freycinet from his ship the Casuarina in 1803. Bunbury is known as an aquatic playground with a range of water based activities and attractions.

Bunbury is a community rich with culture. The area has a number of significant historic buildings worth seeing such as St Mark’s Church which was built in 1842 and is the second oldest church in Western Australia.

The city has often been called the dolphin capital of Western Australia; these beautiful wild but playful creatures are well known for befriending tourists whenever possible. The dolphins regularly visit the Dolphin Discovery Centre in Koombana Bay where tourists can get a chance to interact with them on the beach.

There are also snorkelling and diving opportunities off the Lena Dive Wreck for those who would like to witness the local marine inhabitants up close.
