Dunsborough: A Picturesque Destination with Plenty to Do

As the northernmost city of the Margaret River region, Dunsborough boasts an ideal location on the western coast of Australia. The beautiful coastal town is set just 250 kilometres south of Perth and is quaint in size while offering big-city amenities. Whether you are looking to hit the untouched sandy beaches or to enjoy the thrill of a lifetime, there is something for you in Dunsborough. This holiday destination has been awarded Western Australia's top tourism award and offers rentals for all budgets, lifestyles and needs.

Venture Down to the Bays

There are three main bays in Dunsborough, all of which face north and provide protection against the incoming winds off the clear surrounding waters. Meelup Bay is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Dunsborough. It is part of Meelup Regional Park and offers a variety of walking trails with lookout points to view wildflowers and the coastline, in addition to its pristine sandy beaches. Geographe Bay is another excellent destination within Dunsborough, as it offers calm waters that are ideal for swimming and water sports and unbeatable views over the surrounding area. Bunker Bay is the final bay within Dunsborough, and visitors here enjoy a wide beach, waves that are great for surfing, plenty of open space to play on the shore and rock formations that are fun to climb.

Get Out on the Water

As Dunsborough is set right along the coast, getting out in the water in one form or another during your stay is a must. If you want the feel of the ocean without actually getting your feet wet, charter a fishing boat for a deep sea adventure or go on a whale watching cruise during migration season. Diving is extremely popular in the Dunsborough area; in fact, there is even a purposely sunk destroyer called the HMAS Swan that allows divers to see how marine life takes over in the event of a shipwreck. Swimming, surfing, kayaking, snorkelling and boating are other activities that are well-liked in the waters surrounding Dunsborough.

Visit Cape Naturaliste

One of the most popular tourist destinations in the Dunsborough area is Cape Naturaliste. There are many walking trails that allow you to fully appreciate the scenery and some of the paths are even accessible to those in wheelchairs and those with babies. For a dose of history on your holiday, visit the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. Guided tours allow you to learn about the past use of the structure. If the weather is poor or the kids need to burn off some energy, visit Climbing Naturaliste, an indoor rock climbing gym that offers walls for varying fitness levels and abilities and coffee for spectators.

Inland Activity

If you tire of the Dunsborough beach and waterside, there is plenty to keep you busy a little further inland. The main streets of downtown Dunsborough harbour lots of boutique shops, cafes, bakeries and more. Because this town is part of the Margaret River wine region, there are many lovely places to sample local wine, including fine dining establishments. Many galleries are sprinkled throughout Dunsborough and allow you view local works. To learn more about the area, try a scenic drive through Dunsborough and the surrounding villages.

When to Go to Dunsborough

Winter months in Dunsborough are cool and wet, yet still feature lots of sunshine, while the summers are full of warm temperatures and clear skies. The prime season for holiday travel to the Dunsborough area is typically during the spring or summer, which is expected with the town's close proximity to the water.

Family with smaller children staying during April 2018

4 of 5
We had a good stay and would recommend this house, property is well located as more on the outskirts of Dunsborough, so easy to get on roads like Cave Road to explore Margaret River region which worked well for us. The only problem we ran into was that the gas ran out midway through our BBQ, managed to get hold of the owner and there was a spare tank tucked away behind the house. House was clean and had everything you need (you need to bring your own bedsheets and pillow cases). One thing we did not like and would recommend changing was that all the pillows had a thick outer plastic that was noisy and sweaty and uncomfortable to sleep on. I know this makes for easy cleaning, but not for a great sleep unfortunately.

Nice, quiet, neat place. Close to Dunsborough centre and east drive to everywhere else.

I know everyone else says it, but the breakfast is amazing.
