Retail & Commerce

The City of Bunbury is the commercial and administrative hub of the South West of Western Australia.

Strong population growth in the urban areas of Bunbury, Busselton, Australind, Eaton and Dalyellup is fueling a healthy retail sector.

Village-style town centres underway in developments such as Treendale in Australind provide further opportunities for retail development.

Opportunities abound for small to medium businesses supplying goods and services to the mining, agricultural, forestry, fishing and tourism industries.

Access to major road, rail and port facilities makes Bunbury the main distribution centre for the region, servicing the needs of industry and the community.

Banking, investment and financial services, wholesale trade, industrial and building supplies, real estate, accommodation, hospitality, recreational and cultural activities all contribute to the region's commerce sector.
