One of the main draws of Bunbury's CBD is its abundance of cafes, restaurants and bars, so it's hardly surprising that efforts are being made to offer diners something different.
Discussions are underway to introduce more al fresco spaces to the city centre, giving people the opportunity to eat or drink in a relaxed atmosphere during the summer months.
The City of Bunbury has consulted residents and local businesses about plans to introduce these areas and the response has generally been positive.
Businesses weren't keen on the idea of shutting down a section of Victoria Street to traffic on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, but put forward other proactive suggestions.
Instead, they recommended closing some of the on-street car parks, meaning they could be used by cafes, restaurants and bars during specific times.
Work is still ongoing to determine what the best course of action will be, but there are high hopes residents of Bunbury will soon be reaping the benefits.
If you're hoping to make the most of the region's cafe culture, then why not enlist the expertise of a real estate agent in Bunbury?
