The Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project is creating new shoreline destinations and infrastructure to stimulate thriving marine and tourism industries.

Stage 2 includes the redevelopment of the Jetty Road causeway, which was completed in late 2020, and upgrades to the Casuarina Drive foreshore. 

Work on the Casuarina Drive foreshore began in November 2020 and includes enhanced public amenities such as picnic areas, BBQ facilities and a play space; creation of a waterfront promenade; and an upgraded road, services and increased parking. 

Stage 3 includes construction of new breakwaters at Casuarina Boat Harbour and Koombana Bay, alongside upgrades to community facilities and serviced lease sites. The boat ramp is also now open thanks to completion of $1.1 million worth of improvements, providing skippers based in the South-West with better launching facilities in time for summer. 

The Transforming Bunbury’s Waterfront project involves the South West Development Commission, in partnership with the Department of Transport, DevelopmentWA and the City of Bunbury
