Day 30. Bask in Busselton's Historic Heart & Soul
The beautiful @busseltonjettyofficial was built 153 years ago when timber exports were booming and extended a bunch of times as the boats got bigger! There’s more than one way to experience the jetty; stroll the entire 1.81km out to sea, reel in a fish or squid, take a ride on the famous jetty train and underwater observatory tour, or dive with the fishes on an underwater helmet tour. Book your jetty experience today.

Day 28. Keep Kids Happy 🤸‍♂️
Happy kids pretty much spells happy adults so finding entertainment for toddlers, tweens and teens is an essential task when you’re holidaying in the region. Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from. Hold a snake and meet cool reptiles at Discover Deadly, zip line through the trees at Next Level Monkey Business or Forest Adventures South West, or get lost at Wow Illusions.

Day 26. Search for Sanctity 🧘

Life's full of fun times, party dates, deadlines, catch ups and more... but when you're down south, sometimes you just need some time to chill out. Whether that means slowly cruising along on your SUP (stand up paddle board - pictured here at Meelup), fishing off Augusta Jetty or snoozing in a hammock on your the deck of your holiday house, it's sure to feel just as relaxing as this incredible scene!
