Discover the Amazing Street Art in Bunbury, Western Australia

The sheer volume of street art in Bunbury has helped the region become a must-stop for art lovers, so we knew, even though we were on a tight schedule there was no way we should drive past without at least a short visit.

Bunbury is two hours south of Perth and a great stop on your way south to Margaret River, which is only 40 minutes down the road. There is a bunch of reasons to visit the area, including the beautiful beaches, but for us, the main reason we chose to stop was to check out the fabulous street art.

Jam Wall – a street art in Bunbury can be found all over town

Spanning the walls and laneways of Bunbury are 40+ large scale murals by local and international artists including Rone, Beastman, Fintan Magee, Stormie Mills and Kyle Hughes-Odgers. Created over six years of annual street art festivals the town now boasts an almost five-kilometre street art trail.

Your first stop should be the local visitors centre which you will find at the Old Railway Station in Haley Street. This is where we picked up our street art map and got some great local advice on where to eat.

You can cover most of the murals in a couple of hours – the perfect amount of time to stretch your legs – but the area could easily keep you entertained for a weekend or more.

The Rose Hotel

We parked by the gorgeous old Rose hotel built in1865, this state-heritage-listed building was restored and refurbished in 2016. They have a great menu if you pass by hungry. You will find it at 27 Wellington St, Bunbury

Fintan Magee

We then headed up the main street to the cinema where we found the Fintan Magee mural we had come in search of on the south-facing wall at The Grand Cinema.

Fintan Magee says of the work, “it is a piece in a series of figures reflecting the housing crisis in the USA and natural disasters from my own personal experiences”. It was painted for the Re.Discover Exhibition in 2015.
