Uniquely South West
Jazz by the Bay is uniquely south west in flavour. We’ve got live music in Ngilgi Cave, at Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, in the lovely old Weld Theatre in Busselton, in some stunning local wineries, in a brewery, a fish pub, and in iconic local venues like Caves House Hotel. Plus for the first time we even have a jazz-inspired silent disco!
