A port city on the western coast of Australia, Bunbury is a short distance to the south of Perth. Owing to its close proximity to Perth, Bunbury is a perfect weekend getaway for those living close by. As Western Aussie’s third largest city, Bunbury has a wide variety of places to explore, eat and see. With a vast array of shopping and accommodation options, it’s the right place to be for backpackers. However, Bunbury’s real claim to fame is its wild bottlenose dolphins, which swim right by the beach at the famous Koombana Bay.
