Augusta Hotel & Accommodation

Located on the south west cape of Western Australia, this popular summer town is perfect for relaxation and tranquility far from some of the west coast's more crowded coastal holiday spots.

50 km south of the Margaret River, Augusta is a prime spot for water sports. The nearby Blackwood River hosts a range of events throughout the year, including the annual Augusta River Festival in March and the Anaconda Adventure Race every year in November.

Renowned as a whale watching spot from mid-May until September, boat trips also operate up to six times daily during peak holiday periods. Try your luck and see if you can spot one of the migratory whales as they make their way along Australia's west coast.

For even more encounters with wildlife, try your hand at rock fishing in Flinders Bay, or head along the scenic drive on Caves Road and explore the beautiful Boranup Forest which is rich in lush forest and wildlife.

Nearby Jewel Caves' magnificent formations are also sure to wow. Visit the enthralling limestone caves near Augusta and marvel at the intricate formations which weave their way across the cave walls. Home to a waterfall, marvel at some of the most impressive stretching straw stalactite formations that you'll find in a tourist cave.

For even more thrills, climb the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse or slow down and enjoy and indulge on the region's acclaimed produce at the Augusta Wineries.

Considered one of Western Australia's best kept secrets, Augusta is one of the third oldest settlements in Western Australia. It's also only an hour from Busselton, making it a fantastic base for exploring the south-west coast of Australia.
