The South Bunbury Football Club competes in the South West Football League.
The club was founded in 1897 at a meeting at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Bunbury. South Bunbury picked up the nickname Tigers after the relative inaccessibility and perceived wildness of the South Bunbury area around the turn of the 20th century.

The port city of Bunbury is the third largest city in WA after Perth and Mandurah. It is located 175 km south of Perth’s CBD. The port services the farming, mining and timber industries of the south west originally connected via an extensive rail network. It is named after Lieutenant Henry William St Pierre Bunbury, who developed the very difficult inland route from Pinjarra to Bunbury. Bunbury has sister-city relationships with Setagaya, Japan, and Jiaxing, China.
