Bussells Bushland Cottages

Travelling south along Bussell Highway and just prior to entering Margaret River township, turn right into Carters Road, travel 4.5 kms and (just beyond the junction with Burnside Road) and turn left into the tree-lined driveway. Proceed for 500 metres and the manager's residence is on the left hand side.

Located in the heart of the picturesque Margaret River wine appellation, Bussells Bushland Cottages is a gazetted “Land for Wildlife” and “Wildlife Land Trust” sanctuary. The rustic charm of these 8 well-appointed (self-contained) rammed-earth cottages is complemented by the natural (20 hectare) bush block, well treed with jarrah, marri, banksia and peppermint trees; and home to prolific birdlife, possums, brush-tailed phascogales (wambengers), bandicoots and kangaroos.
Bussells Bushland Cottages is a 20 hectare (50 acre) "Land for Wildlife" property, located 5kms north-west of Margaret River township. 

8 rammed-earth cottages set apart in order to preserve privacy and are self-contained with full kitchen, dining and living facilities, an outdoor BBQ, wood-fired potbelly stove in the living room and ceiling fans in all bedrooms (except those with double bunks). Each cottage shares 1 bathroom. 

Walk trails criss-cross the bush block which has wonderful stands of old-growth jarrah, marri, banksia and peppermint trees, as well as being home to a wide variety of bird life and mobs of kangaroos. A simple 'starter' breakfast is provided for the first morning, otherwise this is a self-catering property.  Wi-Fi is available free-of-charge. Although limited, it should be adequate for e-mails and streaming.
