Travel Tips for Busselton
Bay Dive is based in Dunsborough but you will quite often see their boats just off the Busselton Jetty. They specialise in dives to the Swan Wreck which is located in Geographe Bay. This ship wreck is reported to be one of the World’s best Wreck Dives. The ship was purposely sunk in 1997 and lies upright in 35 metres of water. The ship is 113 metres long and over 30 metres wide. The dive runs daily (depending on weather conditions). Day and Night dive options are available.
Wise Winery is north of Margaret River inbetween Dunsborough and Yallingup. This winery was started in 1991 when both the Eagle Bay Estate and Geographe Estate were combined. The winery sits with a 180 degree view overlooking the vineyard, the Meelup Valley and Geographe Bay. Their wines have won numerous awards over the years Australia wide and all are available for tasting.
Wise Winery also has 5 delightful and very different chalets in secluded bushland on their property which can accommodate anything from 2 to 10 people. The chalets are a 20 min walk through bush to Meelup Beach. Linen & towels are provided in all chalets. No pets are allowed on the property.
Location : Eagle Bay Road, Eagle Bay
The caves were discovered in 1899 by Edward Dawson when he was looking for stray horses. Dawson started to give guided tours the following year and in 1903, electric light was installed. The cave was originally called Yallingup Cave after the town nearby but was later renamed because of its association with an Aboriginal legend which described the battle between a good spirit Ngilgi and an evil spirit Wolgine.
Entry to the cave is every half hour. You will see wonderful displays of stalactite, stalagmite, helicitite and shawl formations. There are semi guided tours as well as a range of adventuring caving and torchlight tours.
Aside from the caves there is a café, childrens playground, bbq facilities and walk trails.
Location : Off Caves Road, 2km East of Yallingup. 34km from Busselton
The Aboriginal Garden
The Aboriginal Garden sits behind the tourist bureau. It was planted in 1998 and was designed by a local Nyungar, Mitchella Thompson. The garden interprets the original uses of native plants for food and medicine by the Aboriginal people.
"EASTER GETAWAY IN BUSSELTON"
This Easter for the first time in a while both my husband & I had time off to go away. We chose Busselton one of our favourite getaways in the South West. We are biased because my sister and her family have lived there for 5 years now so we are very lucky to get a free bed. Regardless of that we always have a great time.
My sister has over 100 acres of farmland half-way between Capel & Busselton so we feel as if we have had a real break from the "rat race" when we stay with her.
"THERE'S ALWAYS JOBS TO DO"
It's amazing, at home my kids hate doing their chores and have to be reminded often. On the farm in Busselton they love doing their cousins chores and often fight over who is going to check the olive trees for broken ties. The olives have only been planted for 18 months & regularly need re-tying to keep them growing straight. I think its because they love to drive the quad bike.
"DON'T FORGET THE CHICKENS"
What is about kids & chickens? My 9 yr old nephew wanted chickens when they bought the property and finally this year his dream has come true. Everyday he is out there talking to them , making sure they are comfortable checking for eggs. They have a lovely new pen so that they can roam free among the fiut trees during the day. They also have a nice safe home for night. There were some crows trying to steel the eggs while we were there. Didn't know you needed a scarecrow for your chook pen?
