Destination guide

Take a long walk off a very long pier in Busselton

Wanna take a trip where you're close to breathtaking beaches and calm waters that are simply swimming perfection? This off-the-grid sleepy town on the tip of western Australia has a coast you'll remember, and not just because of its perfect, sheltered beaches. Its 19th-century wooden pier stretches 2 km over the water and ends in an ultra-neato Underwater Observatory. The completely pleasant climate, which is dry and warm, makes this an excellent region for grape-growing, so you'll easily find a winery or 2 near many Busselton vacation rentals.

Things to do

See 1 of the world's 5 underwater observatories

At this point, you've likely figured that Busselton's premiere attraction is its impressively lengthy pier, which also happens to be the longest in the Southern Hemisphere. That's pretty cool, but it gets better. The end of this structure culminates in an underwater observatory, 1 of only 5 in the world. And with several vineyards in the near vicinity, like Palmers and Flametree wineries, you can get viticultured with a delicious tasting tour. Head inland to see – and smell – the towering eucalyptus trees in the Tuart Forest National Park.

Activities

Busselton's got it goin' on in the beach department

When you see the beaches, you'll get why this is a holiday hot spot in the good ol' summertime. Busselton's beachfront has gorgeous white sand, warm water, and tons of activities just in case you wanna pick up the pace. There's a massive skateboarding park, waterfront cafes and souvenir shops, and a lengthy jetty with diving, fishing, snorkelling and swimming. And if you're here between June and December, you might spy some migrating humpback whales. Rent a bike and ride the lengthy paths until you find your perfect picnic place on 1 of the shaded grassy areas.

Weather

In the summer, Busselton's beaches are bustling

Busselton's pleasant Mediterranean climate is dry and hot, with summers in the upper 20s and winters in the mid teens. Rain's most likely from May to September, but even then, you probably won't need to bother with an umbrella. Did we mention this weather is seriously perfect for grape-growing (and therefore, wine-making)? Refreshing sea breezes will cool you on a scorchin' summer day, and the water temps are absolutely sublime. Everyone and their mother goes on holiday during Christmas and in January, so naturally, that's the busiest time for Busselton vacation rentals.

Natural highlights

From inland to aqualand there's lots for nature lovers

With many wetlands and protected forests, nature lovers can go wild for Busselton's wildlife. Tuart Forest National Park houses a number of mammals and birds, like the rare western ringtail possum. On the other side of the geographical spectrum, the aquatic life here in the Indian Ocean is pretty awesome. More than 300 marine species are visible at the Underwater Observatory, including whale sharks, rays, turtles and, of course, lots of coral and fish flashing their striking, vivid colours. And maybe you'll see some humpbacks rolling in the deep too.
