It is home to the iconic 1.8 km long Busselton Jetty and is the events capital of Western Australia, hosting numerous sporting, musical and cultural events each year. Busselton is a relaxed seaside city and has many green parks for the kids to play in, as well as several historical buildings that take you back to early settlement times. There are endless kilometers of flat paths along the scenic coast for a leisurely bike ride or stroll; stop off anywhere along its length for a leisurely swim or to simply relax by the beautiful bay. The cycleway between Busselton and Dunsborough is a flat, leisurely 25 km one-way ride and if you include lunch at either end, it makes for a lovely day out. Busselton is an excellent family destination, having kilometers of calm, shallow water and white sand beaches for the kids to enjoy.
