Marlston Hill Lookout Tower

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Walk to the top of the unusually shaped Marlston Hill Lookout Tower to enjoy spectacular panoramic views over Bunbury Harbour and Koombana Bay. It stands proud on the site of the original Bunbury lighthouse. Enjoy a walk from the lookout to the new chequered lighthouse that stands 25 metres tall and can be seen 27 kilometres out to sea.

Built as part of Western Australia’s Bicentennial celebrations in 1988, the lookout tower is a perfect vantage point to see the city of Bunbury, several popular beaches, the breakwater and all of the activity within the harbour. You can also enjoy the uninterrupted views of the Old Timber Jetty and watch Bottlenose dolphins frolicking in the water at Koombana Bay.

The coastal town of Bunbury offers a plethora of different attractions appealing to all ages. An excellent way to see the town is walking along the Heritage Trail. Visit 50 significant sites and historical buildings on the walk that can take anywhere from two hours to a full day.

Bunbury is a two and a half hour drive south of Perth.
