Imagine wild dolphins frolicking in turquoise waters, blissful long lunches in verdant vineyards, skimming through the surf on water skis, whizzing through wildflower-strewn trails on a mountain bike, or four-wheel-driving down secluded beaches. In the Bunbury-Geographe, adventure and relaxation exist in harmony. The only question you need to ask is: what do I feel like doing today?

Pack adventure gear, a swimsuit and book, or a basket full of goodies – just a two-hour drive south of Perth, the beautiful Bunbury-Geographe greets adventure seekers, revellers and nature lovers alike with sun-washed shores and undulating green hills.

Head for the Blackwood and Collie Rivers, famous for water sports and fishing. Kayak, hike or horse ride among carpets of wildflowers and the bush. Want to take it up a notch? Mountain bike the legendary trails of the Collie River Valley.

The seaside city of Bunbury is energetic yet laid-back. Swim with wild dolphins, check out the burgeoning street art and coffee scene, or chase sparkling coastal views.

Further south, rolling hills, forests and orchards make way for the picturesque towns of Donnybrook and Balingup. Visit the tranquil Capel region to marvel at the world's only remaining tall tuart forest, or head to the Ferguson Valley or the Harvey region to experience the best of country life.
