The Area: Busselton and Geographe Bay, WA
Busselton is the largest town in the Geographe Bay region, with a population of 25000. Considered the capital of the Margaret River Wine Region, Busselton offers a huge range of accommodation and things to do. Enjoy a stroll along the pristine beaches of Geographe Bay and onto the town’s historic jetty – extending 1.8 kilometres over Geographe Bay, the heritage listed jetty is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. At the end of the jetty lies the Underwater Observatory, which provides visitors with the opportunity to experience one of Australia’s greatest artificial reefs. Descend eight metres to the ocean floor via a spiral staircase to view some of the 300 species of vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates.
East from the jetty is Port Geographe Marina where visitors and locals alike can join the yachts for a drink, ogle dream boats, jump on board a twilight sail, or see the fishing charters’ catch of the day. Running south from the jetty is Queen Street on which is situated the ArtGeo Cultural Complex which features a fusion of art, culture and heritage attractions. Other activities in Geographe Bay include heading south to visit more magnificent beaches, as well as Karri forests and caves, sample a multitude of award-winning wines and beers or savour gastronomical delights such as cheeses, olives, chocolate and ice cream.
