If you’re anything like me, you are constantly thinking about your next family holiday. WA has so many lovely, family-friendly places to explore with picturesque scenery, beautiful beaches and unique things to do. Busselton is located around 220km from Perth and is a popular destination for families due to the close proximity to the city, plus its beaches, relaxed atmosphere and sheer volume of things for families to do. Here’s a bit more about Busselton.

Things To Do For Families

Busselton is popular with families due to the abundance of things to do with the kids. For a start, it is renowned for its diverse coastline – there are the calm waters of Geographe Bay, or one of WA’s premier surfing beaches, Yallingup beach.
