Bunbury is a dynamic and thriving city that is moving forward and has a lot to offer the people living here. It is in a beautiful part of the country with a moderate climate, good access to education, health services and a lot of sport and recreation facilities. It is close to the states capital that offers a lot more cultural activities, major health services and higher education opportunities. There are a lot of opportunities here for families young and old with support for all age groups with the City Council moving ahead with disabled access to as many places as possible.
Tourism plays an important part in Bunbury’s moving ahead as it presents some unique opportunities that can’t be found everywhere else. The dolphins in the bay are an example of a unique tourist attraction as are the wildflowers of the south west region of the state. There is a unique Aboriginal heritage to the area and with white Australians and younger Aboriginal people becoming more aware of the wonderful culture the Aborigines bring to us; there are some great opportunities to learn here.
Like most popular tourist areas some people will visit and then come here to live so there is always a chance of the town moving ahead and not stagnating. Tourism will always provide jobs for young people and some will stay in the area and not move away. They may go to university but there are ample opportunities to return to Bunbury.
