How to get there
Bunbury is located less that two hours’ drive from Western Australia’s capital city of Perth and is one of Western Australia’s most popular travel destinations. It is the ideal weekend or short stay getaway from Perth.
The Geographe region in which Bunbury sits is home to one of the south west’s budding wine regions, a thriving arts scene (check out the street art) and host of environments perfect for outdoor adventures and water sports activities…no wonder its become the home of the Action Sports Games.
Australind train service is one of the cruisiest ways to get there. The Australind travels between Perth and Bunbury. Departing twice a day during the week, it covers the journey in two and a half relaxing hours.
