Bunbury Activities

If you are searching for thrills and spills, an adrenalin rush, something relaxing, a touch of culture, family fun or perhaps looking to tantalise the tastebuds a little, Bunbury offers an endless list of activities that everyone will enjoy. You will never have a dull moment in Bunbury when you are out enjoying one of the many activities from water sports, nature-based activities, food, and wine adventures, or just exploring what the city has installed for you!

To start with you can look forward to canoeing and kayaking or even trying your hand at some white water rafting. There is diving and snorkelling off the nearby reefs and shipwrecks or perhaps you would like to get a line or two wets with the opportunities for fishing whether it be straight from the beach, from a hired dinghy, or out on a fishing charter for the day. You can play a round of golf on the local golf courses and embark upon one of the many coastal walks that provide beautiful views and lookouts along the way or you might like to see the sights of Bunbury while cycling around.

There are sailing, cruises, and yachting adventures to set sail on and with the year-round swimming at the beaches, there is always fun by the water’s edge to be had. You can go water skiing, jet skiing, surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, and body boarding, or maybe a trip to the Dolphin Discovery Centre where you can see and swim with the local bottlenose dolphins is what you want to do for the day. There is whale watching and dolphin spotting cruises and with some of the calmest ocean waters fringing the coastline a great way to spend a day is just to kick back and relax on a sailing trip or join a sunset cruise to watch the sun fall over the horizon while sipping on champagne.

You can go to the Big Swamp Wildlife Park or browse through the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries or even visit the interesting King Cottage. There are wine and cheese tours to book and plenty of tours that will let your wander through the wineries of the neighbouring Margaret River region and sample some award-winning wines for yourself. You can take guided tours of the city stopping off at some great places that showcase the sights and delights of Bunbury and for all nature lovers, there are hiking trips, bushwalking guided tours, and bird watching. You can catch a movie at the cinema or base your holiday around a racing or sports carnival, dine at one of the al fresco or fine dining restaurants where you will order meals that will leave your tastebuds in a spin, and a trip to the famous Cappuccino Strip is always a must while in Bunbury.
