More information

Sprawled along the pristine white sandy beaches of Geographe Bay, the drawcard of this relaxed town is its picturesque foreshore. Here you will find the world famous Busselton Jetty and Underwater Observatory, uninterrupted views of the expansive coastline, and lots of space to spread out and soak up the sun.

A beachfront bike ride to the west of the jetty will take you up to the ‘resort strip’ where you will find absolute beachfront accommodation starting at just $100. Busselton boasts the most beds in the region so expect a range of five-star resorts, well equipped caravan parks, cosy bed and breakfasts and cheap-but-cheerful options to suit your needs.

East from the jetty is Port Geographe Marina where you can join the yachty’s for a drink, ogle dream boats, jump on board a twilight sail, or see the fishing charters’ catch of the day.

Running south from the jetty is Queen Street. A two minute walk along this thoroughfare will have you at the ArtGeo Cultural Complex, offering a fusion of art, culture and heritage. Continue along for another two minutes and you will be in the heart of the CBD. The town centre itself offers all the conveniences you might need including major supermarkets, banks, pharmacists, travel agents and more. Make time to stroll through iconic Fig Tree Lane between Prince and Kent Streets for a bit of retail therapy or watch the world go by at one of the funky small bars or cafes.
