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

This bay is perfect for kids. Very safe with shallow waters for the kids to run in and out on. There's an excellent kids playground not far from the waters edge and there's even a kayak hire place just on the waters edge. Dunsborough town centre is just a few minutes walk up the road for any supplies you might... More

It’s great to hear about your visit to Dunsborough Foreshore in Geographe Bay! As you mention the water is perfect for paddling, and the town centre amenities are so close by. We love seeing families out on the beach in the late afternoon, it’s the perfect picture of summer relaxation! We hope that you have enjoyed your holiday so far... More

Geography bay embodies many places from Dunsborough all the way up to Peppi grove beach. In between there are many fishing spots, dive locations, and heaps of watersports to be had. Of late there has been sharks spotted in the bay but there is a helicopter that flies around and spots the sharks. It isn't uncommon for the sharks to... More

By taking the public bus from Busselton to Dunsborough you can ask to be dropped at the jetty area (after the Primary School) at the most western point. Here you can pick up a walk path back into the Dunsborough townsite (about 3-4km) and this takes you along the beachfront and past holiday houses. It is quite shaded and is... More

A lot to see and do. Plan your trip and you will be rewarded. Apart from whale watching, we also saw Dolphins in the bay.

We stayed at a resort overlooking this bay - could not rate it highly enough .... breathtaking! The white sands make the water looking mesmerising, wish the weather had been warm enough to swim

It's wonderful to hear about your fantastic stay overlooking Geographe Bay! You were lucky to visit during springtime as the whales are migrating by with their young, it's possible to see them breaching from the beach, so we hope you saw some! We hope that you have the opportunity to return in summer, as the water is beautiful for swimming.... More

The roads around Dunsborough are so beautiful for exploring! As you head from Dunsborough to Cape Naturaliste there are secluded bays such as Meelup Beach, Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay. At this time of year the whales have begun to pass by and they’ll often stop to rest before heading south to the Antarctic – it’s magical to see them... More
