Welcome to the Diocese of Bunbury
We are an Anglican Diocese situated in the stunningly beautiful south west and great southern regions of Western Australia. This Diocese is one of 23 dioceses which make up the Anglican Church of Australia and which also is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Diocese of Bunbury is also one of three Dioceses which comprise the Province of Western Australia and they are: Bunbury, Perth and the North West.
Our Diocese covers a large geographical area with a mixture of rural, regional, metropolitan and remote living. The majority of the people of Western Australia live on the coastal rim of the country, and this Diocese is no different. Approximately 80% of the population lives in an area that represents only 15% of the total area we cover. This means our Anglican Church community represents farmers and those living in rural and remote locations who travel vast distances and who work locally and in communities. We also have many people who are town and city dwellers, who live by the sea and whose way of life is more regionally urban based.
The City of Bunbury towards the north of the Diocese is home to St Boniface Cathedral, the Diocesan Cathedral and is co-located with the Bishop’s residence and the Diocesan Office. St Boniface is a War Memorial Cathedral which was built in the early 1960s. The Diocese itself was formed in 1904. For more information on the Cathedral please visit: www.bunburycathedral.org.au
