The City of Bunbury - where city amenities and a country lifestyle come together.
Bunbury is one of the fastest-growing regional cities in Australia and has been dubbed the second capital city of Western Australia.
Located in the South West of Western Australia about 180 kilometres south of Perth, Bunbury is a beautiful place to live, work or visit and has something for everyone.
First gazetted in 1841, the City of Bunbury is now the commercial and residential heart of the booming South-West region of the state.
Bunbury’s population is now estimated at more than 33,000 and continues to grow steadily at an annual rate of 2%. The Greater Bunbury region has approximately 80,000 residents and it is estimated this will increase to approximately 100,000 by 2031.
The quality of life in Bunbury is by far one of its biggest attractions, offering residents a variety of facilities, schools, shops, nightlife and beaches which are all within easy reach.
It has everything a family needs including public and private primary and secondary schools, tertiary education - which is offered through the South West Institute of Technology and Edith Cowan University - and a range of medical services located at South West Health Campus.
The City of Bunbury will continue to develop, grow and improve thanks to these attributes and the massive potential for investment and growth in our region.
