As a proud West Aussie I have a blind love for our beautiful south west. I’ve spent my younger years exploring our stunning coastline and now that I’m all grown up I’m able to explore whilst enjoying the ‘finer’ things in life. Food, wine and coastline, it’s the ultimate combination really.
Last month I got to experience the ‘new’ Bunbury or ‘Bun Geo’ as it’s now affectionately known. We were taken on a ‘lost and found’ journey exploring the streets and seeing all the beautiful sites that Bunbury has to offer.
When I travel I like to check out where friends have recommended first. I love to experience little boutique wine bars, submerge in the culture of where I am and see beautiful scenery and on this trip, this is exactly what we got to do.
We all met in a stunning old warehouse in the centre of Bunbury City where we were talked through the eclectic diversity of the Bunbury Geographe region. We were then taken on a stroll through the streets and landed in this gorgeous activation in a side alleyway. We sampled delicious local produce and admired the stunning art murals that surrounded us.
The new brand message aims to inspire visitors to seek out unexpected experiences, to get ‘lost and found’ in the region and with the stunning boat cruise up the coast that ensued, that’s exactly what we did. From one eye-opening experience to the next, we landed on the shore of Bunbury beach where we were entertained and ate till our little hearts were content. The local food, wine and cider were all delectable. I was just sorry I had to drive straight back to Perth so I missed out on indulging in my usual piggy capacity.
After the event I popped in to my go to Bunbury eatery, Café 140, to stock up on loaves of my favourite, freshest bakery bread and an almond milk latte for the road.
