The Location
Bunbury and the South West Region of Australia offer professional people an exceptional mix of lifestyle and residential opportunities. A seaside city that offers protected beach bays minutes from local bars and restaurants, boutique shops and alluring coffee houses and cafés dotting street art corners and hidden alleyways. One minute you can be walking down the main street, and in the next hit the water where wild bottlenose dolphins can be spotted close to shore.

The nearby Ferguson Valley or Margaret River region is an absolute must for lovers of wine. Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix and Leeuwin Estate are just some of the exceptional vineyards there.

The Indian Ocean provides a sanctuary for the famous dolphins and its beaches are a haven for those seeking to get away from it all. For those who want to watch their children play in the sand, or those who just want to unwind, to surf, walk or simply be close to the sea; Bunbury offers the classic Aussie lifestyle.
