Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront

New life is being breathed into Bunbury’s waterfront. And it’s all thanks to the State Government’s Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project.

We are leading the multi-agency project team that is responsible for delivering the three-stage initiative that is transforming coastal areas stretching from Koombana Bay to Casuarina Boat Harbour.

Since the initial concept for the project was unveiled in 2015, the vision for Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront has been making the leap from blueprint to reality.

Locals and visitors alike are enjoying the enhanced Koombana Foreshore and redeveloped Dolphin Discovery Centre – both of which have been delivered through Stage 1 of the project. 

With Stage 1,  plus the Stage 2A Jetty Road Causeway upgrade component now complete, efforts are now focused on components of the remaining stages, including the Casuarina Drive Redevelopment.

Stimulating the economy through boosting the tourism and marine industry sectors are important outcomes of this project. Throughout the timeline of the project, there has also been an emphasis on maximising job opportunities and tenders for locals.

The local community is reaping the rewards of Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront in a variety of ways. Benefits include improved public amenity, better facilities, upgraded spaces to spent time in, and the creation of jobs during construction and operation.
