A beloved beachside holiday destination

Gateway to the Margaret River

The coastal City of Busselton has been a beloved beachside holiday location for generations of families. On the southwest tip of Western Australia, Busselton is the gateway to the Margaret River wine region making it an attractive destination for tourists. There’s much to see and do in Busselton from beaches and forests to exploring places of significant history or immersing yourself in the taste sensations of the local wineries, craft breweries, markets, cafes, and restaurants.

The calm waters of Geographe Bay make it a safe and popular place for swimming, kayaking, boating, and fishing. The stunning, 19th-century Busselton Jetty is a local icon with a rich history while the 160-year-old Wonnerup House is an important historical and cultural site.

Explore ancient landmarks

160 years old, Wonnerup House, run by The National Trust of Western Australia is an important cultural and historical site. The property was named by George Layman in 1832 when he took a land grant of 500 acres. This peaceful setting adjoining the stunning Ludlow Tuart Forest and Vasse-Wonnerup wetlands has a history of perseverance and hardship, mistrust, and tragedy, following the colonisation of the greater Busselton area in the 1830s.

The Ludlow Tuart Forest gives visitors a unique opportunity to drive through the last remaining natural tall tuart forest in the world, past ancient trees said to be over 300 years old. There are several walking trails and if you’re lucky, you might spot some amazing birds and native wildlife.
