Busselton Bay & Bounty Trail
The nostalgia here is palpable, harking back to a simpler time – one of free time.
Naturally, the bay is front and centre on this trail but scratch a bit deeper into the bountiful hinterland and you’ll find more experiences that hold onto Busselton’s essence and give back even more.
The calm of the coastline is paralleled by the adventures found inland, not to mention the quality beer being crafted locally.
Expect genuine grassroots cellar doors, one of West Australia’s top produce and artisan markets, a new small bar scene and unforgettable family holiday memories.
The Busselton Bay & Bounty Trail is intended to guide you towards the parts of Busselton you’re looking for and the parts you didn’t even know about.
Follow them to the letter or use them as your North Star to get back on track if you’ve wandered off the beaten path (and we hope you do).

One of our friendly tour guides will greet you at the end of the Jetty to guide you through the Underwater Observatory. As you descend 8 metres below the ocean’s surface you will be lead through the natural wonders that lie beneath the Jetty where its piles create Australia’s greatest artificial reef, host to an inspiring forest of vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, invertebrates & over 300 individual marine species!
