Construction and layout

Similar to the Mandurah and Dunsbrough reef, the Bunbury reef is made up of thirty concrete box type structures. Additional to this, a few years after the initial six clusters where deployed, there have been another ninety concrete modules deployed within the area to interlink the existing clusters. This has provided a larger area for the fish to inhabit which has also increased the area for boats to fish.
