  • Worst Chef Alive


    This is a nice venue. The decor has been done really well, great products, huge selection of drinks and the layout is great. BUT.... The chef is terrible.. Seriously how anyone can hire someone and allow their them to continue to produce the same crap time after time is a joke.

    I am a bunbury local, and the highway is my closest watering hole and feeding ground for our family. I wish it wasn't! the amount of times I have gone into this venue nd the tried to order the fish and its been unaveil is absolutely ridiculous. Half the time our food comes out cold,the steaks are never cooked how you ask and when you send it back its another hour wait to get your replacement meal. I have been to other woolies pubs and they seem to have their stuff together, this place needs to take note o the rest of the pubs.

    The kids menu would be the worst menu I have ever seen, The chicken nuggets are big chunks of deep fried chicken, it looks like fish. The adults fish and chips when you ask for grilled is the smallest piece of fish you've ever seen. they advertise a under $15 menu, but all the items are not under 15, they are spot on 15 and all they are are their daily specials that last for a week. The laziest wy to have specials. SERIOUSLY woolies you need to send this chef to learn A La carte service again or get he/she out of their before you destroy it. There are 25,000 people in that kitchen all the time, surely they can get it together and remember that we the customer is the reason you have a job, if we go - for jobless.

    The poor staff rally try, but you cn see they are sick of food complaints.

    Yesterday was the worst experience to date. Learn to cook parmas. Your meant to cook chicken

    Pull your head in woolies or sell it to coles

    Unique Quality: They have nothing. Happy hour i think on weekdays

    Directions: RUN... do not look back

Travel Tips for Bunbury

Blue Manna Crabs

by robertgaz

Blue Manna Crabs live in estuarine waters throughout the South West of Western Australia. Crabbing is a popular local pastime and brings Bunbury's gourmets into local waters to catch this prized delicacy much loved for it's deliciously subtle sweet flesh.

Please take notice of warnings from the Department of Fisheries, Western Australia who aim to maintain crab numbers for future generations by limiting the size and number of crabs taken from Bunbury waters each year.

Locals will jump in their "tinny" (small aluminium boat) and drop crabbing nets over the side or others will wade in knee deep water with scoop nets to catch these crustaceous critters.

Tuart Walk

by robertgaz

The Tuart Walk takes you from Bunbury’s southern most suburbs to the rapidly expanding, and relatively new satellite suburb of Dalyellup.

The Tuart Walk takes about 15 minutes to ride, meandering through a serene coastal bush nature reserve with attractive stands of Tuart trees and Peppermint Gums.

On any nice day, you will come across a lot of walkers and cyclist so take care while admiring the scenery.

The Bunbury entrance to the Tuart Walk is near Mosedale Avenue at the very end of Ocean Drive.

Tasty fresh salads

by robertgaz about Ex-tensions On The Beach

Ex-tensions On The Beach is right on the Back Beach which is Bunbury's most popular and safest beach.

Enjoy fresh salads, succulent seafood or a tender steak with great views of the Indian Ocean. The restaurant is fully licensed and has a good selection of local beer and wines. The Caesar Salad with tender pieces of grilled chicken breast, crisp lettuce and other greens, seasoned croutons and a few slivers of anchovies is my favourite. The seafood crepes looked worth trying as well.

Boulters Height Lookout

by robertgaz

An excellent view across Bunbury is from the Boulters Height Lookout.

It is named after A. H. Boulter who established a rotunda on the site in the late 1920s. In 1966, to coincide with a visit from the Queen Mother, the local council built a 26m waterfall.

The waterfall is now completely turned off as a result of local high school students continually adding washing powder at the top of the falls. This created mountains of soap suds at the base much to the chagrin of the city council.

The view from the lookout was dominated by St Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral built in 1920 and completely destroyed by a mini tornado during May 2005 (see my Warnings or Dangers pages).

The lookout underwent a complete landscape during 2005 which included upgrading all the walkways and gardens. This was done in conjunction with a new streetscape for Stirling Street and has given this part of town a revamped look.

When in Bunbury you must see nearby Gnomesville!

by TheTravelSlut

"When in Bunbury, go to Gnomesville!"

Gnomesville, Australia--you will probably not find it on a map--- but it should be!

Gnomesville is a "village" of gnome statues, monuments, memorials and anything gnome-related about 40 km outside Bunbury and is a must-see if you happen to be visiting the Bunbury area.

I took a train trip from Perth to Bunbury on my birthday with other Vters just to visit this site and to place a set of VT gnomes in a befitting spot there. I was accompanied by several other VTer's including hosts Buffybird and her hubby who graciously picked us up at the train station, drove us to Gnomesville, participated in the ceremony, and then took us on a tour of Bunbury before returning us to the station.

The VT group that attended included Stephanie & Gerry (who offered the VT banner), 1+1, and Buffybird & husband.

"There's even a road sign to Gnomesville"

Important enough for a road sign but not a map?

Well, perhaps there is a map somewhere that shows Gnomesville.

"The official setting of the VT Gnomes"

A spot next to a tree on the right side of the main path from the parking lot was selected for the VT-Gnomes.

A little ceremony took place and a VT banner was placed thanks to VT'ers Stephanie & Gerry (thanks to VT!).

Despite some drizzling rain, the placement of the VT gnomes was a highlight of my trip to Gnomesville.
