Bunbury Harbour

I was in Bunbury today and took this shot of the harbour. The major export seems to be woodchips, and the harbour is screened off from view at ground level. However from several vantage points you can get a reasonable view of the harbour and this was taken from the lookout near the high school. I like the contrast in colors the woodchips give, and the industrial look to the whole scene.

  1. The other lookout down by the lighthouse in the Marsden Point development has a good view of the harbour also. They must still be shipping woodchips, I thought that industry had taken a bit of a dive.

    • I have a shot from that lookout, but it is not so square on, so the woodchips don’t show up so well. But it has a great view of the old harbour. They must still be processing woodchips in Bunbury as I see many trucks carting logs to Bunbury every day. They must “chip” them at Bunbury and then ship them – sort of a “chip and ship” process.

  2. Add a must into that last sentence please. 🙂
