This is a perfect spot for the photographer to get a birdseye view of the city. The stairs are constant and have several flights to reach to the top - there is an alternative road at the back for vehicles, which we weren't aware of...More

It's quite a treck to get to and once at the top you have limited views of the surrounding area. Not the place you would go to especially but if you are passing then worth a small detour.

Brought my overseas visitors here and like me, they were underwhelmed. A couple of good photos of Stirling Street, the rooftops, the name plaque and that was it. None of us had the legs to attempt the return trip on the Arthur Dunn Stairs. The...More

There is a nice view of the city from Boulters Heights. It's not worth going out of your way to see it.

This lookout is very average. The view takes in a view of the centre of Bunbury. The stairs are old and the gardens leading up age dead and very poor.

Caught up with a mate recently and decided to do some stair climbs. Defiantly a popular spot early in the morning, but you can see why when you see the view over the town centre. Pictures can not do it justice!

Although this area has has considerable funding expended over the years, it is still somewhat nondescript. Good access stairs from Stirling Street to the top; then you can enjoy a view of Stirling Street through to Blair Street, Bunbury Senior High School in the background...More

Boulters heights is ok I suppose but you don't get to see the ocean from there, just over the Bunbury town site. You are better off going to Marston Hill where you can get 360 degree views. I am surprised this is even listed for...More
