Busselton is a city of 28,000 people (2018) on Geographe Bay in the South West region of Western Australia. It is famous for its 2-km-long heritage jetty, which has been restored for tourism. Busselton was voted Western Australia's top tourist town in 1995, 1996, and 2005.
Busselton was a very early settled farming and timber port in a sheltered Geographe Bay, just south of the larger Bunbury. It was connected by railway to Perth until 1957. It is now served by wider, faster highways, and is predominantly a car-oriented location. Although public and private transport is available to the intrepid traveller, car-based travel in the area is the dominant mode.
The town was on a beachside, and it spread, and spread, and now with the named location Dunsborough to the west, and wetlands to the east, it is a long spread out homage to the beachside environment. Because the town and its spread around the bay is all flat, it is an excellent bicycling area. The original town next to the jetty remains busy and central for services.
