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.

Well maintained facilities. Not good for big boats at low tide though, if you don't want to get your vehicle wet. Coffee van onsite, good coffee. Nice grassed area to see and watch...

I would suggest checking to tides if you launching a big boat and dont want to have to drive into the water, its a...

Be 5 star if the ramp was steeper so you wouldn't have to put your car so far into the water and also have adequate organised parking. Probably best avoided in busy periods.
