10 New Spring-spirational Experiences in BunGeo
Find a little spring in your step with these BunGeo experiences. Our New Kids on the BunGeo block include:
- The Green Depot, Bunbury
The much-loved botanical boutique The Green Depot has moved and expanded. Located at 40 Wellington Street (across from The Rose Hotel), the funky hipster space oozing the latest botanical trends now also includes a Mayde Health Nutritional Bar and a relaxed bridal space from Leaf and Lace. This spring, expand your skillset with a Green Depot Workshop – Dried Flower Glass Dome (7 November) or Christmas Wreaths (14 November).
- The Potted Warehouse, Bunbury
Continuing on the plant and garden theme, The Potted Warehouse has opened a new kitchen in its warehouse. Set up as lunch bar style with great coffee, warehouse made cakes, slices, Italian biscuits, paninis, and more. Think rustic, wholesome food with an Italian flair made on site. BunGeo recommends their homemade Cannoli filled with Italian custard – yum. Catering and ready-made meals also available. They are ultra dog-friendly too.
- Olivia Grove Farm Shop, Kirup
Find a huge range of beautiful products created by property-grown organic olives. Olivia Grove Farm is an olive grove, farm shop and cafe that is focussed on providing handcrafted products, old-style customer service and rewarding shopping experience. Their gift range includes natural skin care products, giftware and a small selection of gourmet condiments. At the cafe, the menu changes weekly – think chocolate layer gateau, Anzac biscuits, salted caramel white choc cheesecake or their sweet and savoury tasting plate. Olivia Grove Farm is five minutes from the Kirup townsite, at 238 Ravenscliffe Road. Note: Only open Sundays, 9am-12 noon, or you can pick up Olivia Grove organic teas at Newys Veggie Patch.
- Le Charabanc, Bunbury
Travel back in time and experience the grandeur of the Roaring 20s with Le Charabanc. Sip champagne and indulge in a gourmet platter on a Bunbury sunset tour in this beautiful vintage bus.
- Bunbury Geographe Motor Museum
Car-lovers, don’t miss the Grand Opening of the Bunbury Geographe Motor Museum on 11 October 2020. You’ll find one of Australia’s best collections of classic, veteran and vintage cars and motorbikes, on loan for local collectors, including the below 1920s Auburn Speedster, comprising a Straight Eight Motor. BunGeo recommends checking out the most famous Mazda in Australia – raced by Alan Moffatt. Entry fees – $10 adults, $5 children. Concession and pensioners rates available.
- Blackwood Emporium 1864, Mullalyup
During October, the Blackwood Emporium 1864 opens in Mullalyup’s old Blackwood Inn stables. Dating back to around 1864, the emporium is the place to visit for ah-mazing home-cooking surrounded by character and history. Hang out by the wood fire as you savour handcrafted chocolates (up the ante with a chocolate indulgence plate), cakes, and specialist teas. BunGeo recommends the High Tea, complete with damask tablecloths and vintage china.
- Whisk Nutrition Studio
After some MTB action in the Collie River Valley, refuel with a smoothie from Whisk Nutrition Studio. The new smoothie, tea and juice bar offers all the flavour without the guilt – think a Cheesecake Shake with only 190 Calories or a yummy Mango Tango concoction! Located in Steere Street, next to Crank n Cycle Collie.
- Morris Lane Taffy's, Bunbury
We also recommend you pay a visit to Morris Lane Taffy’s new premises at Bunbury’s Aspire Apartments, Holman Street facing Koombana Bay North. If you’re lucky you will find owner Sam, hard at work producing Salt Water Taffy and fudge. Life is sweet at Taffy’s!
- Noongar Kaartdijin Bidee Art Trail, Harvey
Noongar Kaartdijin Bidee is a newly constructed art walk from Harvey Visitor Centre under South West Highway along the Harvey River. Local Aboriginal Elder Lesley Ugle has worked artists Ninette Comito, Troy Bennell and Tahlia Bennell and the local community to tell the story of Noongar land. Starting at the Harvey Visitor Centre the walk heads west for about 500m and is an accessible walkway.
- Victoria Street Deli, Bunbury
Ok – this one has been open for a few months, but for those who are yet to discover the Victoria Street Deli, we recommend you do now! The deli stocks fresh produce, salads, gourmet rolls, poke bowls, fresh soup, ready-made meals, gourmet picnic hampers and all those things you can’t find anywhere else, like edible flowers, Indigenous spices, and truffle oil. You’ll also find naughty treats like chocolate-coated doughnuts and homemade honey cake. Victoria Street Deli is open from 7am, 6 days a week.
A little further along Victoria Street, you’ll also find the new Feast 43. Perfect for a casual feast of kebabs, gourmet pizza, burgers and more. BunGeo recommends their Pulled Pork Burger – Slow-cooked pulled pork in their Cola bbq sauce, smokey spicy coleslaw and homemade onion rings.
So, this spring it’s time to #wanderoutyonder in the Bunbury Geographe.
