Bunbury Sports & Outdoors: 4 reviews and 20 photos
On the 22nd October 2006 over 500 people ran or walked in the 2006 South Western Times Surf to Surf Fun Run in Bunbury. This is an important annual fundraising event for the City of Bunbury Surf Life Saving Club .
Participants have a choice of either a 10km or 5km run or a 5km walk. I was hoping for a 10km walk but as this wasn't on offer I chose the 5km walk because running holds no appeal for me at all.
The 10km runners go on their way first followed at two minute intervals by the 5km runners and then finally the 5km walkers.
After a slow start due to my loyalty to other team members in staying together they gave me leave to go faster when they realised I preferrred a more determined pace.
So I squickly et off to make up some lost ground and managed to finish 20th with a time of 39min 25sec.
Equipment: The cost is $15.00 for each participant.
Address: Bunbury Surf Life Saving Club
Directions: Back Beach, Bunbury.
Because Bunbury faces a coastline with strong and dependable prevailing sea breezes, hang gliding is an exciting sports option here. The coastal dunes are high enough with plenty of car parks to launch yourself into the wide blue yonder.
Theme: Extreme Sports
Bunbury Dive Charters offer personalised diving experiences around the Bunbury region. A very popular local attraction is the world class "Lena" dive wreck just 3nm from the coast.
The "Lena" is a pirate ship which was scuttled off Bunbury's coast during December, 2003 and is now sitting in 17m of water. This makes it very accessible to open water ticketed divers and has proven to be a popular photo site for with a myriad of fish making their home in and around the stern.
Address: Casuarina Drive, Bunbury
Directions: Bunbury Outer Harbour area
Phone: +618 9721 6070
