Pristine beaches and a gateway to the Margaret River food and wine region make Busselton one of our fave vacay places. Just a few hours south of Perth and with the epic Bunbury Farmers Market en route, there is never a bad time of year to head down to Busso.
From beachside to resorts to glamping and Airbnbs, there’s quite literally something to suit every style in Busso.
Go Glam At A Resort
Aqua Resort Busselton
Get us here stat. On the shores of Geographe Bay, Aqua Resort oozes luxury and style. With direct access to the white sandy beaches the South West is known for, this will soon become a favourite on your West Aussie vacay list.
Broadwater Resort remains a favourite for Busso regulars with its contemporary and stylish self-contained accommodation options. There’s private balconies, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a tennis court and hot tub.
The Sebel Busselton
The bath, the pools, the hotel beds… we’re really feeling the need to escape to The Sebel just to feel like we’re a million miles away. Splurge for the studio with spa bath—you know you want to.
Live It Up In An Airbnb
Bayside Luxury Escape
Sitting pretty between the beach and one of our favourite little towns is Bayside Luxury Escape. The outdoor entertaining area calls for getting a group together to get out and explore everything this gem has to offer.
Busselton Beachside Beauty
Looking at this beachside beauty has us dreaming of morning walks on the jetty, long coffees and sleepy afternoons. Impeccably styled and in the heart of Busso, this one had to make our list.
Sitting smack bang on the pristine waters of Port Geographe is Dolphin House, a grand two-storey home with views for days. And it’s called Dolphin House for a reason, which you’ve probably guessed already: dolphins play in the waters right in front of you. Take a seat on the serene balcony or head out to the jetty to catch some fresh crabs for dinner. It hosts up to six guests, and it’s just a short drive from central Busselton.
This one is pretty luxe, so be prepared for a very serene and glamorous vibe from the moment you step through the door. 7th Heaven is just a six minute walk from the Busselton beaches, and with four gorgeous bedrooms, it’s perfect for groups looking for a lovely getaway down south. Make the most of the stunning outdoor area with the built-in BBQ.
This stunning holiday house sleeps up to ten and boasts incredible views of the Busselton Jetty and bay. You can sit back and relax by the pool or get out with canoes, bodyboards and fishing lines before settling back in for a night of stargazing to the sound of the ocean.
Set Up At A Holiday Park
Glamping at Mandalay Resort
If glamping is on your to do list, we highly recommend checking out the luxe tent at Mandalay Resort. While it might be listed under kids activities, don’t leave without checking out the waterslides and giant jumping pillow. You can thank us later.
Amblin Holiday Park
You can set up camp at the sites on Geographe Bay or shack up in a safari tent, cottage or beach hut at this coastal holiday park. With direct access to the beach and an indoor heated swimming pool, you’ll be a happy camper staying here year round.
BIG4 Beachlands Holiday Park
You will be the coolest person out if you book this holiday park for your kids. There’s a water playground, giant jumping pillow, table tennis, pools and a massive TV at the camp kitchen. For the bigger ones, the outdoor hot tub will have you feeling all sorts of relaxed.
Once you've picked your place to stay, check out these hidden adventures in the south west region.
