The prosperous port city of Bunbury is the third largest city in Western Australia after the state capital, Perth. It was named ‘Bunbury’ in recognition of Lieutenant Henry William St Pierre Bunbury, who developed the difficult inland route from Pinjarra to Bunbury.
Bunbury has long been the perfect weekend getaway from Perth and other Western Australian cities. Its natural beauty, wonderful weather and tourist attractions make for an ideal holiday.
It is rich in its art and culture, showcasing its multi-faceted heritage. The distinctive historic Bunbury Regional Art Gallery, the largest and only ‘A’ class gallery in Western Australia, has a range of international and local exhibitions and a public art collection throughout the city, making it the region’s cultural and entertainment hub.
