Come and enjoy the beautiful Geographe Bay! Gorgeous sunsets, views of the famous Busselton Jetty, cafes, restaurants and plenty of spots to relax and soak it all in. The Busselton Foreshore offers up what seems like an endless stretch of white sandy beach, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a swimming spot all to yourself. Jump into the shallow, still waters and be sure to keep your eyes open for frolicking dolphins swimming up and down the bay. If you’ve got a board, bike or scooter, give the Busselton Skate Park a go.

This foreshore and beach is very popular for its safe swimming under normal conditions. A seasonal swimming enclosure is in place, which is accompanied by the permanent swim jetty, located just west of the main Busselton Jetty.

There are three playgrounds spread across the foreshore for all ages. Make sure you check out the new shipwreck adventure playground, complete with half-sunken ship and a kraken. For younger kids there is also a dedicated toddlers' train-themed playground situated in between the Busselton Visitor Centre and the Youth Precinct.

The Foreshore has ample shaded picnic areas with public BBQ's and seating, along with toilets and shower facilities. There is also a network of bicycle pathways which connect all the way to Dunsborough!

Dogs are permitted on-leash on the grassed and paved areas of the Foreshore but are not allowed on the beach between certain sections. Please refer to the City of Busselton website for further details on dog-friendly exercise areas.

Excellent playgrounds for children. One for toddlers and another more adventurous for older kids. Well arranged with grass areas, shady trees and bench seating with some tables. There is a nearby restaurant and a small (too small) takeaway shop. Just a 2-4 minute walk from the town centre. A reasonable amount of parking. Gregory J Smith
This place is awesome. So family friendly. Pretty clean although some of the bins were starting to over flow from a busy Christmas day. I couldn't resist it I had to walk the jetty. Over 1,800 metres long. Lovely views. Taylor T
A place seems to have a lots of event going on. Been here for several times recently for different types of concerts. Such a nice place for families and groups of friends to chill here. I love Busselton!!! WeiFan
Even more beautiful during sunset. Lovely spot for a nice night walk with a great view. Could be pretty cold around at night due to strong wind. Hee Susie Seo
Beautiful new play ground and facilities. Well worth a visit, heaps of parking, shade and area's for families to enjoy. Well when I went to senior high school there in busso back in the 80's it was drummed into us that it would be completely gone by early 2000's ...... high tide line is still the same now though !!!!
