Enjoying Our Waterfront: Since Forever

Thursday 18 April until Sunday 11 August 2024

Take a journey through the history of Bunbury's waterfront and witness the role played in the community over time.

In the lead-up to the exhibition, a photo competition was held to find the best images of people enjoying Bunbury’s beautiful waterfront, whether in the distant or not-so-distant past. From the over 100 entries received, the top 10 were selected to be displayed as part of the exhibition.

View the years of Bunbury's beautiful sun-soaked waterfront through the lens of its community. Learn the stories behind the photos and cast your vote for the People's Choice Award in person or online.

Enjoying Our Waterfront: Since Forever is sponsored by the South West Development Commission’s Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront initiative.

Permanent Exhibition

The Museum’s permanent exhibition tells the unique stories of the South West's regional centre and the colourful characters who helped to make Bunbury the vibrant port city that it is today. From the oldest continuous living culture of the Wardandi Noongar Aboriginal Australians, to the shipwrecks and struggles of early migrants, convicts and wartime stories, daily life and local industry - the people of the region have all contributed to this city’s rich history.
