Transport & Getting around

How to get around the region

If you want to take a journey of a lifetime, get out on the ocean, or just get from A to B, no matter how you want to do it, we’ve got the transport for you.

The range of products includes private chauffeur driven charters, airport transfers, taxis, mini buses, hire car and campervans to a coach or mini-coach provided with or without a driver. We even have luxurious vessels to purpose built whale watching and fishing charter boats available to charter.

Depart on a regular itinerary or tailor-make your own and enjoy the very best of Your Margaret River Region.

Public Transport

For information on train and bus services within the region we recommend you get in touch with your local visitor centre or the following transport companies:

  • For information on the regional public bus service, contact Western Australia’s Public Transport Authority.
  • For rail and coach services between regional localities, contact Transwa.
  • For bus services between Busselton and Dunsborough, contact Swan Transport via (08) 9753 7500.
  • For express coach services between Busselton and Margaret River, contact South West Coachlines via (08) 9753 7700.

As is typical in regional Western Australia, public transport is limited to main routes only and we would not recommend relying on public transport to make your way around the region for the duration of your holiday. For private touring, charters are a great option offered by many local companies.

Tours

A variety of organised and custom-built tours are available catering to different interests and needs. Most include pick up and drop off at your accommodation.
