Beautiful Busselton

Clock Posted Aug 13, 2019

Busselton, the seaside town 4.5 hours south of Perth in Western Australia, is most famous for its IRONMAN race in December. However, there is more to explore in this beautiful region, and visitors are delighted by its surprising discoveries.

The life of the city is fuelled by the 1.8 kilometre long Busselton Jetty and the amazing waterfront precinct which has developed around it.

With the jetty as a focal point, the waterfront is brimming with activity. Seaside cafes, kiosks, bars and restaurants give way to bike paths, large shady grassed areas and a calm tranquil white sandy beach. Take a walk or train ride to the end of the Busselton Jetty, which is one of the main Busselton attractions, to the Underwater Observatory where you can see amazing marine life.

The bustling main street has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with superb alfresco restaurants, cafes and pubs and boutique shops. The allure doesn’t stop there with an events calendar bursting with sporting and cultural events.

Culture vultures can visit the Busselton Museum, the Old Courthouse Art Complex or St Mary’s Church– with countless other attractions like caves, historic lighthouseswineriescraft breweriesart galleriesrestaurantspubsbeaches and scenic viewpoints just around the corner.

As one of Western Australia’s favourite tourism towns and as the gateway to Your Margaret River’s premium wine region, tourism is at the heart of this seaside town. There’re so many things to do in Busselton and plenty of accommodation options ranging from absolute beachfront five star resorts, private villas, family fun holiday parks, bed and breakfasts and everything in between.
