Travel Tips for Bunbury
On the 26th of January each year Aussies celebrate Australia Day. It's a time for us to enjoy and appreciate what's great about living down under.
This day is celebrated in all states and territories as a public holiday. In Bunbury there are joy rides and entertainment provided along Pat Usher boulevarde near the CBD. As night falls there is a fire works display and live music until late.
For the 2006 celebration Bunbury received a gift of a tall pole with a giant Aussie flag from the Australian Federal Government.
A morning in the Maidens - the Peppermint Walk
The Maidens are a coastal dune nature reserve with well marked walk trails leading to the beach and there is also a shady BBQ area near the start.
The Peppermint Walk basically follows the road alongside Ocean Drive and takes you through coastal bushland with lovely stands of marri and peppermint trees.
These trails may not be as spectacular as those between Yallingup and Margaret River but they are a pleasant enough walk around especially during the wildflower season around September/October.
There's a lookout on top of the highest hill with a great 360 degree view over Bunbury and to the Indian Ocean.
It's on everyone's lips
Mojo's is Bunbury's only Gold Plate winning restaurant for 2008 and are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
The decor is modern with either indoor or alfresco tables. The best time for alfresco is in the afternoon when you can catch the sun.
The service is friendly with a great selection of foods and drinks. The restaurant is licensed with a variety of local and imprted beers and wines.
This would be the place to celebrate a lotto win... I spotted a botlle of 1990 Krug going for $1,100!
Chilli salt squid, bok choy, Singapore sauce & jasmine rice $23.00.
They could have put the Singapore next to the Chilli Salt Squid to prevent them from going soft.
It still tasted great though!
For an entree do try their salted and steamed soya beans still in their pod. Delicious with a crisp white wine :~)
Visual arts in the South West
The Bunbury Regional Art Galleries is the largest regional art gallery in WA.
Their vision is to be recognized as the leader in the pursuit of excellence for visual arts in the South West (of W.A.).
The building was previously a convent for the Sisters of Mercy from 1897 until sometime during the mid-1980's when the sisters moved out.
The galleries are open daily between 10:00am - 4:00pm
Admission is by way of a gold coin donation which are the $1 or $2 coins.
Living down here
I moved to Bunbury in January 2005. I love the place so much that I have brought my own piece of Australia, yes I brought a house down here.
Bunbury is like the gateway to the south west, I enjoy going down to the wine region and trying out some of our fine WA wines every so often.
