Busselton has so much for families to do, including beautiful beaches and fantastic accommodation.

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.

Beaches
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.

Busselton Beachfront
The Busselton Beachfront boasts netted swimming areas, shaded lawn, restaurants, pathways and picnic seating. It is also home to the Underwater Observatory and the Busselton Jetty, a 1.8km timber-piled jetty stretching out over Geographe Bay. You can even catch the jetty train, which leaves hourly.
