Bunbury is the City of Three Waters and a place where you can meet native animals at a wildlife park, shop local boutiques and spot vibrant street art before spending the evening immersed in the nightlife at one of the many bars and restaurants.

Just a 2hrs drive south from Perth will land you in the heart of Bunbury; a seaside city that offers protected beach bays mere minutes from budding local bars, trendy restaurants, boutique shops and alluring coffee houses and cafés dotting street art corners and hidden alleyways. One minute you can be walking down the main street, and in the next hit the water where wild bottlenose dolphins can be spotted close to shore.

Dolphin Discovery Centre

With so many dolphins living along the coast, Bunbury and Koombana Bay offer the perfect opportunity for dolphins and humans to meet and interact right. The Interaction Zone has been designated as a special dolphin protection area for this very purpose. Under strict license conditions set out by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (BDCA), the Centre has been able to offer a unique interactive experience on the beach right in front of the Centre since 1989. Dolphin Volunteers have been trained to ensure the interaction guidelines are followed and they will always be present on the beach to answer your questions and manage the interaction should dolphins visit the zone. Inside you'l find the beachside cafe and the new Interpretive Centre which showcases an expanded range of themed fish and coral aquariums.
