Voted top tourist town in WA in 1995 and 1996, Busselton is the gateway to the out-of-this-world South-West region of WA - one of the most attractive, interesting and diverse regions in the entire country.

Busselton, 228 kms south of Perth, sits at the centre of the deep indentation that is Geographe Bay and the Vasse River and it is a haven for surfers, sun lovers, fisherfolk, sailors and boaties.

Jarrah forests are still logged for the timber industry and vineyards, dairy and beef farms are spread throughout the hinterland. Fishing for salmon and crayfish (marron) is another boom industry.

There is just so much to be said for this region which is graced with great beaches, the famous Margaret River and its myriad, multi award winning wine-growers, the singular scenery, the Mediterranean climate, the wildflowers, the dining, the whales, the caves and an absorbing history.

Festivals - Naturaliste Bluewater Fishing Classic (March), Heritage Festival Day (April)
