Here are our picks for things to do in Bunbury this Summer.

Drink Red Wine at the Capel Vale winery and Match restaurant

Things to do in Bunbury
Red wine is a type of wine made from dark-colored grape varieties. The actual color of the wine can range from intense violet, typical of young wines, through to brick red for mature wines and brown for older red wines.

Drink in the views of vineyards as you drink and dine at the Capel Vale winery Match restaurant. They will ‘match’ your food with their exquisite wine. Due to COVID – 19 safety precautions you have to book ahead. Before you head home grab yourself an Australian Red at their Cellar Door.

Enjoy Victoria Street

Bundle up in your woolies and go for a stroll along Victoria Street. It is great for people watching, though it is better to keep your distance for all sorts of reasons. You can check out the seemingly infinite small bars and restaurants. The Parade Hotel is a pretty good choice to grab a bite afterwards. Alternatively, you can eat at the Market Eating House.

Buy Fresh Produce at the Bunbury Farmers Markets

Bunbury general information

Bunbury is a coastal city in the Australian state of Western Australia, approximately 175 kilometres (109 mi) south of the state capital, Perth. It is the state’s third most populous city after Perth and Mandurah, with a population of approximately 75,000.

Located at the south of the Leschenault Estuary, Bunbury was established in 1836 on the orders of Governor James Stirling, and named in honour of its founder, Lieutenant (at the time) Henry Bunbury. A port was constructed on the existing natural harbour soon after, and eventually became the main port for the wider South West region. Further economic growth was fuelled by completion of the South Western Railway in 1893, which linked Bunbury with Perth.

Greater Bunbury includes four local government areas (the City of Bunbury and the shires of Capel, Dardanup, and Harvey), and extends between Yarloop in the north, Boyanup to the south and Capel to the southwest.

Things to do in Bunbury
Bunbury is nicknamed as the City of Three Waters because of its location on a peninsula, making it an aquatic playground. To the west, there’s the roaring surf of the Indian Ocean, Koombana Bay’s calm waters, and the serene Leschenault Inlet. Surfing, SUP boarding, canoeing, and boating are all popular activities.
