Travel Tips for Busselton
Port Geographe Marina
The marina is fairly new and offers floating marina berths for long term lease. There is a boat lifter and hardstand service area. They also offer charter services for sailing, diving, fishing, dolphin and whale watching.
There is an onsite manager 7 days. Service Area
Cape Lavender describes itself as a 'slice of heaven - a unique blend of lavender gardens and a quality wine producing vineyard. The idea was created in 1999 by owner Jeff Clarke who had the vision to develop something very different in the Margaret River area. That vision has grown and produced a picturesque estate with the most wonderful aroma of lavender whether you be in the gift shop or out strolling around the grounds. There is a trout filled lake which is surrounded by a lavender lined walk just inviting you to stroll around or just sit on the carefully positioned benches just to take it all in.
Open 10am - 5 pm 7 days a week (except Christmas eve and Christmas day)
Location : Carter Road, (off Metricup Rd) Wilyabrup
Caves Road Tourist Drive
Caves Road is very aptly named. This tourist drive follows the line of the coast in almost its entire length from Dunsborough to Augusta. You will travel through Karri forests as well as the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. You will also pass by many vineyards, lookouts, coastal walking trails, picnic areas and arts and craft stores to name but a few attractions.
Victoria Square is just across from the Tourist Bureau. In the square you will find the Ballarat Engine which was the first steam engine locomotive in Western Australia. It was originally used to haul timber for a local mill.
Longest jetty in the southern hemisphere...
Busselton is home to the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere (2 kms) and with its prettily painted buildings would have to be one of the most charming jetties I've seen.
If you don't want to walk the whole way, during the day there is a little train you can ride out to the end of the pier, either one way or return (which had finished operating for the day when we were there).
At the end of the jetty, 8 metres below the surface of the water is the Busselton Jetty experience, an underwater observatory.
Unfortunately we arrived just a little too late for the last tour at 4.30 and were unable to see it, and the weather wasn't so good so our 4 km return walk wasn't so pleasant either, with a rather strong cold wind buffeting us all the way out and back.
Well worth checking out the souvenir shop (in these buildings pictured below on the pier) - the photos of the jetty in good weather were simply breathtaking.
