The town of Busselton is situated approximately 220kms south of Perth (the capital city of Western Australia). Founded in 1832 by the Bussell family, Busselton has been one of the fastest growing regions in Australia in the last decade and has a population of approximately 20,000.
Busselton is one of the most popular holiday destinations in rural Western Australia and a premier seaside resort and coastal playground. Busselton has been voted Western Australia's top tourist town three times in 1995, 1996 and 2005.
It is a place of splendid contrasts, from tranquil waters to the rugged cliffs of the surfing coast, ancient caves, picturesque vineyards, sprawling pastures and magnificent forests. The Shire covers 1454 km² and contains a gateway to many attractions and towns in the South West of the State.
Moderate weather conditions are enjoyed with an average maximum temperature of 22.1°C and an average minimum temperature of 11°C. The temperature remains in the high 20s or above between December and February. Winter delivers cooler temperatures; 8 to 18 °C (46.4 to 64.4 °F) and rain that supports diverse agricultural industries, including a world-famous grape-growing region.
Busselton, Dunsborough, Yallingup and Cape Naturaliste are extremely popular holiday destinations offering safe swimming areas for children as well as excellent boating and fishing. Yallingup is probably best known for its excellent surf. The whole region is extremely busy in the summer season.
There are many things to do in Busselton. Take a tour through some of our beautiful wineries enjoying some world class wine or take your self on a drive through the winding Karri trees and explore an abundance of Breweries, stunning Beaches, Art Galleries, the ancient Caves or relax and unwind at some of our world class restaurants that offer unique cuisine and fine dining.
For the Adventurer you will also find the Cape to Cape walk trail a half hour drive from Busselton PLUS we have many easily accessible fishing locations and some of the best Surfing spots in Australia right on the doorstep.
Best known for its iconic two kilometre long jetty and calm turquoise bays, Busselton has a relaxed atmosphere and is a popular place for a family holiday.
Originally built in 1865 the historic jetty is the longest wooden pier in the southern hemisphere. The Underwater Observatory at the jetty’s end will take you up close to colourful fish and tropical coral. Descend eight metres below sea level and look through the observation chamber to see one of the country’s best artificial reefs. More than 300 marine species enjoy warm waters created by the Leeuwin Current.
Adding to Busselton’s appeal is a new canal and marina development north of town, which is a great place for a relaxed drink.
Stroll along the main shopping street – stopping at the old courtroom and jail, now arts centre, then cool off at the main swimming beach lined with lush lawns and magnificent pine trees.
To the north and south stretches 30 kilometres of immaculate beaches and crystal clear water. Try your hand at fishing, water ski-ing, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing or sailing in the calm waters of Geographe Bay. Or have a go on the waterslides, flying fox, carousel or racing cars at the beachfront fun park.
And last but not least, Busselton offers some outstanding geocaching experiences. Which is why we are all going to be there for the WA Day weekend in 2015 - great caching, great company, and great memories to be made.
See you there!!
