Located 11 kilometres north of Bunbury is the coastal town of Australind. The area was first settled in 1841 and has a rich history with many of the town's old buildings remaining today. The St Nicholas Church, built in 1848, is said to be Australia's smallest church and is just one of the historical buildings open for viewing in Australind.
Australind is bordered by the Collie River and Leschenault Inlet, both offering very popular spots for boating, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, prawning and crabbing. Bed and breakfasts and caravan parks are available in Australind with more accommodation on offer in Bunbury.
