Get Involved in Shaping Bunbury’s Events Calendar

By Kevin Kelly

Bunbury is a hotbed of events all-year round, but efforts are now being made by the local council to ensure its next calendar of festivities reflects exactly what people want.

A consultation is being carried out throughout January, giving people the chance to make suggestions as to what they would like to see staged in the city.

The council will review the suggestions next month before making an announcement regarding the next calendar of events. Any decisions will be factored into the council's budget for 2014-15.

Stephanie Addison-Brown, director of community development at the City of Bunbury, said it is important to meet the needs and wants of local people.

Current events include the Christmas Carnival and celebrations for Australia Day, both of which take place on an annual basis.

"While we conduct event surveys and reviews at every event we also need to look at the bigger picture to make sure that we are delivering a calendar which provides events and activities our community and visitors really want," noted Ms Addison-Brown.

A five-minute survey is available online through the council's website and also on the official tourism portal, Visit Bunbury.
