The pristine Dunsborough Foreshore is an idyllic place for a beach day, with extremely calm waters protected by sand banks close to the shore. Stand up paddle boarding is perfect for these sheltered waters, and equipment is available to purchase or hire during the warmer months. The old boat ramp is a hive of fun in summer, as families flock to enjoy the large swimming enclosure and pontoon (seasonal).

It's also the perfect place to join the locals for a curry, taco or burger on the beach at sunset thanks to the popular food trucks that frequent it! 

There is one concrete ramp with enough room for two boats to be either launched or received. Parking No charge for parking. The parking does get busy on days of good weather – especially during holiday periods.

Other Facilities Old Dunsborough ramp is in close proximity to the town of Dunsborough which will have any supplies which you should need.

More Information:  The Old Dunsborough ramp has been upgraded in the last few years. This being said, it is nowhere near the best ramp in close proximity to Dunsborough for larger boats (this award goes to Quindalup). That being said, when the conditions allow this is a great alternative to the Quindalup Ramp especially for smaller vessels. Care needs to be taken when launching/retrieving of the submerged rocks which are located either side of the ramp. These can be an issue as there is no finger jetty when boaties are waiting to head out or retrieve.

So relaxing and peaceful and the magpie are so friendly Lorretta Barker
Easy going ,can be rough at times but the access is of a good standard and the jetty is great for easy access to boaties and the kids Big and small john borlini
Lovely spot for a picnic, or a swim Sandra Kennedy
This is a stunning spot with beautiful picturesque scenery from the beach, the boat ramp, Pier and more. Excellent for Launching your boat. Wonderful sunrise first thing in the morning at the end of the pier if you sit there you can watch the sunrise. There is a protected swimming area just to the right of the boat ramp and also a children's playground area the park land adjoining the boat ramp / Pier. A beautiful spot to visit for all of the above including fishing, picnicking whether friends family or just by yourself. A must visit place.
