The City of Bunbury is a Local Government Area in the South West region of Western Australia, covering an area of 65.7 square kilometres (25.4 sq mi) along the coast about 180 kilometres (112 mi) south of Perth, the capital of Western Australia. The council is responsible for just over half of the Greater Bunbury metropolitan area, and the Port of Bunbury. As at 30 June 2010, Bunbury had an estimated population of 34,626, representing slightly over half the metropolitan population.
In 1871, the Municipality of Bunbury was gazetted, and in 1899 the Bunbury Suburban Road District (which became the Bunbury Road District in 1908) followed. The two entities merged in 1950.
On 1 July 1961, the Municipality of Bunbury became a Town following the enactment of the Local Government Act 1960. In 1979 it attained City status.
The town has 12 councillors and no wards. Each councillor serves a four-year term, and half-elections are held every two years. The mayor is directly elected.
