Things to do in Busselton/Vasse

Busselton is a must for beach lovers – You could spend a month of Sundays just wandering along the azure bay, diving into the water, and munching fish ‘n’ chips on the longest timber jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. But there’s so much more to see and do here – a fantastic package that’s only two and a half hours south of Perth.

[Read More]
Rich in history, the calm, crystal-clear waters of the sheltered Geographe Bay, family-orientated resorts and endless kid’s attractions make it a popular destination for a curious mix of young families and retirees. Despite being the largest town in the region, Busselton retains a coastal-country charm and there is plenty to do: walking, basking in the sun, swimming, fishing, snorkelling, stand-up paddle boarding, diving, kayaking and sailing.

At sunset, you can often spot dolphins chasing schools of fish along the foreshore. Busselton is also the event-capital for the regions hosting weekend markets, film and music festivals, ocean swims, triathlons, a car rally and more.

Eating & Drinking


Along and off Bussell Highway, you’ll find a mix of cafes, restaurants and bars. For takeaway burgers, pizzas or Asian cuisine, keep heading south. Queen Street is the main thoroughfare of Busselton, running from the highway down to the Esplanade, with healthy cafes and a gelateria. Wander down Kent Street and Fig Tree Lane for more cafes, a bakery and gourmet deli. Queen Street, Prince Street and Kent Street are the places to be at night. As well as hotels and pubs, there are wine bars and restaurants, plus cool new bar The Fire Station.

For something special on date night, there are two upmarket eateries on the Esplanade near the jetty, offering stunning views of Geographe Bay. Or, for a cheaper alternative (and a romantic classic), grab some fish ’n’ chips and find a spot along the Busselton Jetty. The view is breathtaking.

Getting There


Busselton is an easy 2.5 hour drive south of Perth. South West Coachlines and TransWA offer bus transfers from Perth to the southwest, or you can fly down or charter a helicopter or private plane.

Places to stay

As well as the Margaret River Region’s biggest major resorts, which line the foreshore, Busselton offers holidaymakers all manner of accommodation, from camping and quaint bed-and-breakfasts, to boutique hotels, holiday rental homes and self-catering apartments.

Book your accommodation well in advance of the SunSmart Ironman WA and SunSmart Festival of Triathlon, and also if you plan on staying over school holidays and long weekends.

Tip: Busselton is usually overrun with teenagers during Leavers’ Week in November. If that’s not your thing, best to avoid visiting then.
