City of Bunbury
The port city of Bunbury is the regional capital of the South West Region of Western Australia. Surrounded by water on three sides, Bunbury boasts beautiful beaches, rivers and inlets and affords its residents unique waterfront living. Many of the city's residents rely on mining, manufacturing, building and retail industries for their employment, working both within the city and in surrounding shires.
Bunbury is well serviced by road, rail and bus services and is only one and half hours drive from the state capital of Perth. It has its own small-scale airport and an express passenger train service which runs between Perth and Bunbury daily. The city offers a wide variety of retail shopping, and quality education (with its own university campus), health and sporting facilities.
The City itself is home to approximately 33,075 people, but the population of the Greater Bunbury area, which includes the adjacent urban centres of Australind, Leschenault, Eaton, Gelorup, Dalyellup and Stratham, is an estimated 67,090 people. More population statistics.
Bunbury's port is one of Australia's biggest regional facilities. It services the export of bulk commodities such as alumina, woodchips and mineral sands. The port also handles a range of other general cargo imports and exports. Find out more about Bunbury Port trade.
