"Future strong growth"

Now here is a place where my wife and I visited and from 20 years ago to just recent and although still a lovely town atmosphere, this place is booming. Enjoyed the swimming and the water was absolutely flat. We brought a truck tyre tube and that's where I floated. A nice town and Busselton has come a long way since we first visited 20 years ago.

Busselton is 220kms south of Perth and the Busselton Shire now has a population of over 26,000.

The timber industry is also big in this area. The famous Busselton jetty is 140 years old and is measured at 1841 m making it the longest jetty in the southern hemisphere and is a major big tourist draw card and it also boasts a wonderful underwater observatory. Busselton has much to off with great shopping facilities with supermarkets, boutique style stores and other stores offering all the goods you need.

"This is a town of diversity. Strong tourism, wineries, surfing, swimming and boating."

Busselton is a fast growing tourist town. Residents from Perth and rural W.A. gravitate to Busselton, especially if they have small children, for their summer holidays as it offers safe swimming conditions as well spectacular surfing conditions on the surf beaches and at the cape.

The region is well known for its wineries and this industry offers seasonal employment during the picking season. Good rainfall also provides excellent pastures for the beef and dairy cattle raising in the area

This is the last coastal town if you are taking the coast road to Albany or beyond.

Because of its sheltered situation Busselton also provides safe boating and fishing for those who follow that sport. Very good sports facilities are there for those that like to other activities.
