Busselton Hotel & Accommodation

A jewel on Western Australia's coast, Busselton is a superb holiday destination. Just three hours south of Perth, this gorgeous seaside township rests on the shores of Geographe Bay, its sheltered waters offering a perfect family holiday.

Well-established for tourists, Busselton accommodation is excellent. You have the option to stay in everything from a cheap Busselton hotel to a five-star resort. And if you really want to indulge yourself, book yourself a few nights at one of the plush Busselton hotels on the beachfront.

Geographe Bay is a haven for water-lovers, whether you're into fishing, water skiing, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking or sailing. The main swimming beach, backed by lush lawns and shady pine trees, is perfect for a relaxing day in the sun. Meanwhile, taking a bike-ride along the foreshore cycleway is a great way to soak up the beautiful seaside ambience.

Busselton is also defined by its magnificent heritage-listed jetty – at 1.8km in length it is the longest wooden pier in the world. Take a ride on the tourist train that runs its length, then descend 8 metres below the water's surface at the Underwater Observatory to discover some of the 300 different marine species that swim in the area.

Busselton's main strip is not far away, offering an eclectic range of shops and local amenities, including an excellent selection of cafes and restaurants. Meanwhile, tap into the artistic spirit of the south-west with a visit to the modern ArtGeo Gallery and Courthouse Arts Complex or visit the Geographe Leisure Centre to use the gymnasium facilities, indoor and outdoor 25 metre swimming pools, steam room, spa or full-sized sports courts. Also save yourself some time to explore the rest of the area - right next door is Dunsborough and the Margaret River wine region.

To make the most of the region's stunning scenery, hire a car from Perth and soak up the Australian west coast on your own self-drive itinerary.

With so many possibilities to relax and enjoy the seaside lifestyle, Busselton is a wonderful place to escape to.
