Cooinda Events started trading on the 1st January 2011.
It developed from the merger of Bunbury Hire and Sales and Bunbury Party Hire in 2009. Bunbury Hire and Sales was established in 1964 as a small machinery hire and sales company and over the years began introducing marquees and general party hire equipment to its fleet which rapidly began to dominate the business’s activities.
Bunbury Party Hire was established in approximately 1987 and it too has seen many changes in ownership and location.
In May 2009, Bunbury Hire and Sales was purchased by Michael and Kristie Burge of KLM International. In October of that same year KLM International also purchased Bunbury Party Hire and was amalgamated into Bunbury Hire and Sales at their store at 48 Moore Street Bunbury. The merger of these two businesses meant that Bunbury Hire and Sales was better equipped to service the South West’s party hire needs.
Until mid 2010 Bunbury Hire and Sales was still hiring small machinery as well as the ever increasing marquee and party hire lines. In July 2010 Bunbury Hire and Sales held an on site auction and sold off all of the hire machinery. With the sale of the machinery side of the business, the Bunbury Hire and Sales name was no longer a neat fit with the business and as such a new brand began being developed.
After many months and lots of head scratching, Cooinda Events was born. The word Cooinda is an Aboriginal word meaning “A Happy Place”. While this is very fitting for a Party Hire business, it has an even more sentimental meaning for Michael and Kristie. For Michael, it was the name of his Grandparents property in NSW and Kristie is indigenous, so it links her with her heritage.
