5 reasons Bunbury is the perfect place to live

By Kevin Kelly

A welcoming and vibrant town, an abundance of beaches and greenery, family-friendly, situated in close proximity to award-winning food and wine – do we need to say more to convince you that Bunbury is the perfect place to live? We thought we'd let you in on a not-so-well-kept secret: we love Bunbury! Here's why you will too:

1. Affordability

The median house price in Bunbury currently stands at $520,000 according to the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia, compared to $777,500 in Perth. Hence, you definitely won't need to fork out as much for your mortgage repayments when you buy in Bunbury. The same goes for Bunbury rentals – average weekly payments in Bunbury are $55 lower than those in Perth. 

2. Proximity to nature

A study published by Scientific Reports in June 2016 by scientists from the Universities of Queensland, Exeter and the CSIRO revealed that there is a connection between time spent in nature and benefits related to health and social cohesion. Luckily for its residents, Bunbury is surrounded by swathes of incredible nature – from nature reserves to parks and beaches. And of course, you'll be sharing these environs with the native wildlife that call it home. 

3. Cosmopolitan experiences

Though there are plenty of opportunities to get away from it all, you've still got boutiques, shopping centres and award-winning dining right on your doorstep. Living in Bunbury really gives you the best of both worlds; you can escape when you want to, but there's always plenty happening when you want to get out and about. 

4. Delicious food and wine

Foodies and wine connoisseurs alike will be pleased to note that they're surrounded by some of WA's best food and drink. Plus, the Margaret River region is just over an hour's drive away, so if your idea of enjoyment involves munching on gourmet produce with a glass of sav in hand, you've well and truly come to the right place! 

5. Family-friendly environment

Bunbury is a community that welcomes people from all walks of life. It's a wonderful place to raise a family and special programs have even been initiated that cater to children with special needs
