Koombana Bay

Natural Attractions

Koombana Bay is one of few places in the world where you can enjoy a magical encounter with wild dolphins by choosing to join a swim tour, a wildlife cruise or a ‘meet and greet’ in the dolphin interaction zone at the shoreline.

The Kwinana Freeway and Forrest Highway will get you to Koombana Bay from Perth in under two hours. The bay is just two kilometres east of Bunbury, making it easy to reach if you’re taking a charter flight from Perth to Bunbury, or arriving in the port on a cruise ship.

A friendly pod of more than 100 wild bottlenose dolphins frequent the calm waters of Koombana Bay, and visit the designated interaction zone at the shoreline at regular intervals every day in the warmer months.

Stand knee-deep in the shallows and wait for the dolphins to come to you, or join a tour for a dolphin viewing or swimming tour.

Swim tours operate daily from October to April, but the Dolphin Discovery Centre is open all year-round offering many ways to learn about dolphins and the other marine life of Koombana Bay.
