Since writing this post we have returned to the Busselton and Margaret River Region several more time. You can read our latest tips on things to do in Busselton on our new site Tips 4 Trips.
The Margaret River Region has long been a favourite holiday destination for West Australians. The region extends from the southern town of Augusta up to the town of Busselton – making it the closest point (a mere 225km or a 2½ hour drive) from the West Australian capital city Perth. Therefore a great base for anyone driving with kids or anyone who doesn’t want too long a road trip.
The Margaret River Region boasts delicious wineries, great surfing and a huge selection of things to do in Busselton and the greater Margaret River Region.
I’ve been visiting this region since I was a child, now I’m enjoying taking my son. We have found so many great things to do in Busselton and a few more we have yet to try.
