BUNBURY AND GEOGRAPHE

CAFÉ CULTURE ONE DAY, COUNTRY CHARM THE NEXT

Starting just one and a half hours south of Perth, Geographe is the ideal place to spend your winter break. The landscape varies dramatically from stunning valleys, picturesque vineyards, jarrah forests and raging waterways to quaint country towns and a city skyline. See it all as you Take the Loop through the Geographe Region.

With its proximity to the Capital, Geographe is ideal for short getaways. Bunbury is the central hub of the region and as Western Australia’s third largest city, it has plenty of options for dining out, shopping and accommodation. Bunbury is most well-known for the pods of wild bottlenose dolphins which frequent the shores of Koombana Bay regularly, allowing visitors the opportunity to wade, cruise or swim with them.

The Geographe Wine Region is fast developing into one of the country’s most exciting new viticultural areas, with new wineries and boutique breweries opening frequently.
