Travel Tips for Busselton
My Favourite Beach
Wonnerup Beach, just past the marina east of Busselton, is one of the best beaches in Geographe Bay. I walk my dog there every morning, even in winter and there is always something to see. The estuary meets the sea here and carves a different path nearly every time they join. There are heaps of different birds and I quite often see dolphins and stingrays close to shore. In summer it is a popular spot for locals to set up for the day. We usually take the BBQ, esky and sun shade, put some crab pots in, go for a skurf and sit back and relax. It is the only beach in Busselton that allows 4wds and access is via either Wonnerup or Forrest Beach boat ramps. If you do want to drive on the beach please read the signs before you drive on it and follow the rules.
Quindalup Fauna Park
The Quindalup Fauna Park is north of Margaret River. The park features Australian wildlife which includes kangaroos, wallabies, quokka, wombats and dingoes. There is also a butterfly enclosure and a natural light marine aquarium featuring local fish from Geographe Bay. Aside from the usual arts and crafts shop, you can also enjoy a Devonshire tea or use the bbq facilities.
Location : 962 Caves Road, Quindalup
Marlston Hill Lookout
This was the original lighthouse site which was used by the early whaling fleet as a vantage point for spotting whales. From up the lookout you can get a 360 degree view of Bunbury which extends as far as the Darling Scarp to Koombana Bay and from Geographe Bay to Cape Naturaliste in the south. Open Daily
Location : Frazer Street, Bunbury
The Heritage Park and Trail
The Heritage Park and Trail begins at Peel Terrace and Causeway Road (near the Tourist Bureau). It will take you past a variety of contemporary sculptures, the Aboriginal Garden, Victoria Square, St Mary’s Church and the Pioneer Cemetery. You can obtain a map of the walk at the Busselton Tourist Bureau.
A Jetty That Is Longer Than Santa Cruz's
"But Not Nearly As Wide!"
A brief stay in Busselton after leaving Margaret River then visiting Cape Naturaliste & Geographe Bay through the day did not leave us a lot of time to exlore Busselton.
However we did discover that it had this amazing, long jetty! An absolute beauty!
See my travelogue for more piccies of it. worth a peek!
