Western Australia’s “second city”, Bunbury, balances an idyllic coastal lifestyle with a vibrant city centre.

There’s kilometres of coastline, world-class restaurants, wineries, nearby country towns, and of course, the iconic Bunbury Farmer’s Market.

Bunbury’s location in the South West, around 180km south of Perth on the coast, affords the city a stunning Mediterranean climate. 

It’s no wonder that more people are moving to Bunbury every year.

The rising prevalence of remote work and Australians’ increasing appetite for a better work-life balance make the coastal city a perfect place to settle.

Are you tempted to pack up and move south? 

Here’s everything you need to know about moving to Bunbury.

The benefits of moving to Bunbury

Laid-back lifestyle

With around 75,000 residents, Bunbury is a cosmopolitan city that feels like a tight-knit community.

As more people move to Bunbury, the region’s arts, culture and entertainment industries are quickly becoming more significant.

And let’s not forget the meandering white-sand beaches within walking distance of the city centre.

Bunbury has long been a favourite holiday destination. 

Now WA families are realising they can have the holiday lifestyle all year round by moving to the South West.

Proximity to Perth

It feels like another world, but driving from Perth to Bunbury takes less than two hours.

You can easily stay connected to family and friends while escaping the hustle and bustle.

Gateway to the South West 

Less than two hours in the other direction is Margaret River, via the Vasse region with its world-class wine and incredible nature.

Bunbury opens the door to all kinds of unforgettable adventures in the South West and Great Southern.

From surfing on the coast to hiking in the Stirling Ranges, living in Bunbury puts you closer to the action.

Education and work opportunities

Mining and mineral processing remains Bunbury’s big economic driver.

But the city is growing, as is tourism to the region, bringing a host of new opportunities for entrepreneurial West Aussies.

From healthcare to hospitality, agriculture to education, there is plenty of diversity in the job market.

Plus, Edith Cowan University (ECU) and Metropolitan TAFE have campuses in Bunbury, providing higher education pathways.
