    Walk-it Bunbury
    4 more images

    Bunbury is serviced with a comprehensive network of cycle/walk paths which make getting around the city on bike or feet a pleasure.

    Walk-it Bunbury is a Heart Foundation program encouraging people to exercise by walking regularly and aims to increase the fitness and general well being of our population.

    Cyclists share these paths with walkers who at times perambulate two abreast making passing them by bike a tight squeeze. So just ring your bell and say "thank you" as they make way to allow you to pass them. I do it all the time without any hassles at all.

    Transwa is probably WA's best regional transport provider linking many regional centres by train or coach services.

    The "Australind" train provides a quick and efficient twice daily rail link between Perth and Bunbury and the "Prospector" train between Perth and Kalgoorlie.

    Transwa also operates coach services to places such as Kalbarri in the north, Esperance in the south-east and Albany & Augusta in the south.

    Its easy getting around Bunbury. The Bunbury City Transit operates an extensive public bus network around Bunbury, 7 days a week. The company also services schools around Bunbury and the majority of day students at the Grammar school arrive and depart from school via the bus service. Several other bus services also operate, for students who live outside Bunbury.There is also a taxi service that operates in and around Bunbury There are several inter-city bus services that operate in the SouthWest. The South West Coach Lines is one prominent company which accesses all South West towns and provides a major link between Bunbury and Perth.

    Perth to Bunbury

    Bunbury Taxi




    If not travelling by car, there are two other ways to get to Bunbury from Perth - by Train or Bus. Bunbury is a 2&half hour journey.

    By bus take South West Bus Coaches - http://www.southwestcoachlines.com.au/
    ....which was the way we travelled down. The bus is the most direct route and takes you right into Bunbury as opposed to the train which drops you off outside Bunbury.

    For Train travel right from Perth Central Station here is the site - https://www.transwa.wa.gov.au/Services/Australind/tabid/40/Default.aspx
    The good thing about the train service is that you can walk around on the train and also order a drink or two from the bar :o)

    Now taxis in Bunbury.....I would avoid the local taxis in Bunbury! They are quite rude and not very helpful. We had to catch a taxi to the local College to get the bus home because the street was blocked off for a local festival. The taxi driver did not even get out of the car to help load and unload our bags! That is very rude!....and I was not impressed.

    Perth International Airport (PER)

    by ATXtraveler Written Jul 28, 2007

    Bunbury is located just outside Perth, Western Australia.

    Perth, Western Australia is unique for many different reasons, but in particular, this city's airport is truly the most isolated international city on Earth. It is very difficult to reach Perth by Air, although it is constantly being made easier through multiple international carriers creating flights here.

    Western Australia's airports are actually equal flying time to Singapore as Sydney. Each being a 5 hour flight from this isolated city!

    Perth however is a major launching pad for alot of Southern Hemisphere Australian travel, housing the international legs of Air New Zealand, Air Mauritius and South African Airways. Perth also serves Asia with Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Royal Brunei, Garuda, Singapore, Thai, Tiger Airways and of course Qantas.

    Read the reviews not what the 'experts' have said. Bunbury has many things to see and is a good place to base yourself for travelling further south to Busselton & Margaret River, has heaps of Restaurants from McDonalds to Haute Cuisine and accommodations to match, oh! yes! there are shops for anything you may want and anything you'd normally find in a City. Yes, we have spiders and sharks and sometimes nasty people but show me anywhere in the world that doesn't have equal issues. If I was from overseas and read the 'official' review I would definitely by-pass this place. Don't! Stop and have a look!

      Welcome to VT. I'm not sure what 'experts' you mean nor what 'official' review? All VT content is written by VT locals and visitors. Everything in the Bunbury travel guide is written by ordinary people, not by 'experts', and there is no 'official' review on VT pages. The opinions of ordinary people may not always chime with yours, but that's life.
