We headed out of Busselton making our way home to Perth and decided to go off the beaten track. We drove along Geographe Bay Road, Layman Road and then on to Coast Road ending up at Forest Beach Road where, by the way, you can drive your 4x4 along the beach!!! We stopped on the beach for while where it... More

When the sea rises and crashes into the rocks, you get a sense of just how powerful the ocean is and how it must be respected. Geographe Bay will instil in you fear as well as excitement from the safety of the lookout areas. Go beyond these boundaries and you take your life in your own hands. One slip and... More

I LOVED this beach, very suitable for young children as the water isnt very deep and you can walk for about half a mile out to sea and it comes up to your knees. The sea is lovely and warm. We hired a canoe and paddle board, also there are bikes to hire. There is no food facilities here, but... More

Another stunning beach Australia has to offer. Unbelievable Beaty, crystal clear water that you could walk through for quite some distance and it doesn't go much past your ankles.lots of little schools of fishes swimming around. It's a very magical place that I go to when I look out the window at home in London with the rain that just... More

A lovely place to visit and enjoy nature at its best with uncluttered beaches and lovely little towns along the way. Relaxing visit after big towns.

The whole of Geographe Bay is is one of the most beautiful pieces of coastline you will ever see. Crystal clear blue water and white sand. Meelup and Castle Rock are great family friendly beaches for swimming, fishing, picnic's and water sports. Also lovely walking trails in the area.

So many gorgeous beaches and so little time to do them all. Eagle Bay is a MUST, walk for km's along the coastal footpath at Dunsborough/Busselton, or drive along Layman Road north of the new marina and have endless beach all to yourself. It really is simply stunning and quite correctly one of the top 10 beaches in the world.... More
