Koombana Bay

The perfect spot for families in Bunbury with the calm waters seeing locals and visitors flock to Koombana Bay during the warmer months.

A friendly pod of more than 100 wild bottlenose dolphins frequent the calm waters of Koombana Bay, and visit the designated interaction zone at the shoreline at the Dolphin Discover Centre regularly in the warmer months.

With expansive lawn areas, playground and flying fox and food trucks frequenting the foreshore during spring and summer, it’s the perfect late afternoon gathering place for the family in Bunbury.

Leschenault Inlet

The iconic Leschenault Inlet includes the Mangrove Walk – the southernmost mangroves in Australia – and a 5km path which loops around the entire waterway.

Koolambidi Woola - Bunbury's newest space for young people - is located at the inlet as is the water splash park, a children’s playground and boat ramps.

Not to mention plenty of dining options on the eastern side and the popular Discovery Parks holiday park on the west which has been recently upgraded.

Back Beach

Bunbury’s popular Back Beach offers some of the best sunsets in the world.

A popular beach amongst locals it is an excellent spot for swimming, building sandcastles, snorkelling and surfing.

Beach fishing is also a popular pastime if you fancy the chance to catch your own dinner.

Once you have worked up an appetite, make the most of the well-kept picnic facilities or cook your catch on the barbecues. If the fishing was unsuccessful, you can always try one of the popular restaurants nearby.

The beach offers a magnificent backdrop for a spectacular sunset viewing.
