Exploring Busselton

Regarded as one of Western Australia’s most significant tourist destinations, Busselton is among the fastest-growing towns in Australia. Located in southwest Western Australia, about 225kms to the south of Perth, Busselton is home to a population of more than 20,000. It also entertains thousands of budding beach-goers each year. Summer is certainly the best time to visit Busselton, as temperatures are at their peak and rainfall is at its minimum at this time.

Busselton relies heavily on tourism for its local economy. The town has been voted Western Australia’s best holiday destination three times over the last two decades. Hotels in Busselton are located across the township, with a range of lodgings available for every budget. Hanging around the beach-front area of the town is recommended, especially during the late afternoon when the sunset mesmerises onlookers.

Sights nearby

Busselton’s main tourist attraction is its magnificent beach, which is close to a plethora of comfortable hotels. There are several historic landmarks within the township, too.

- Busselton Jetty

One of the world’s longest, still-standing wooden jetties is the Busselton Jetty. The landmark was first constructed in 1853, although extensions were continuously added over the next 100 years until its current length of 1,841 metres was reached. Situated close to the center of town, it is easily reached on foot from almost any spot in Busselton. Just over a kilometre from the jetty is Comfort Inn Busselton River Resort, which is a convenient and restful lodging for tourists. At the very end of the jetty is the underwater observatory, which allows for the viewing of marine life and coral at depths of more than 10 metres. In 2011, Busselton Jetty was completely renovated and is now open to the public.

- Wonnerup House

Built in 1859, Wonnerup House is one of the oldest structures in the region. It now operates as a museum under the National Trust of Australia. This well-preserved landmark to the northwest of downtown Busselton takes tourists back to 17th century farming life. Even though there was a fire in 1872 that engulfed parts of the house, there is still plenty of history to be seen inside.

- Busselton Beach

The foreshore of Busselton, which is commonly known as Busselton Beach, is arguably the most important tourist attraction in the town. The white-sand beach, with its picturesque, turquoise water, attracts plenty of attention during the summer months. There is even an opportunity for beach-goers to enjoy scuba diving and snorkelling, especially around the jetty. A number of hotels reside close to the beach front, meaning guests can easily walk from their room to the sand in minutes.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

While walking through the downtown area of Busselton, tourists will notice the large number of restaurants and cafés that serve the town. The cuisine found in most of Busselton’s dining options is primarily local Australian dishes with a mix of Mediterranean and other international influences. Abbey Beach Resort contains one of the best restaurants in the city and shouldn’t be overlooked. Queen Street has a number of great cafés which stay open until well into the night. If shopping is what tourists are looking for, then Busselton Boulevard Shopping Centre, in the middle of town, is the town’s retail hot spot.

Public transport

Busselton is not an overly large town. However, there is still a convenient public bus network operating here. The local bus service is quite extensive, travelling throughout the town and beyond every day of the week. It is possible for patrons to reach as far south as Margaret River using the public bus transport service in Busselton.
