Sport and Recreation can provide enormous benefits to the community. By participating in physical activity people are happier, healthier, work harder and create stronger communities.
The City of Bunbury endeavours to promote and coordinate the benefits of sport and recreation to the community as well as increasing the opportunities for people to participate in physical activity. This is a primary task undertaken by the Community Recreation Team as part of the Community and Customer Services Directorate, responsible for improved social and cultural life for all people that make up the community of Bunbury.

SilverSport was a trial program that supported eligible seniors to participate in sport and active recreation. The trial ran from 1 April 2017 and has now come to an end.
More than 700 seniors from Bunbury took advantage of the program with the most popular activities being gym members, bowls and golf.
The City of Bunbury is pleased to have been able to partner with the Sport and Recreation division of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Department of Communities to offer SilverSport to our seniors and support them to get active and connect to our community.
