Margaret River and Geographe Bay Region Day Trip from Perth

Highlights

  • Géographe Bay was named in May 1801 by French explorer Nicolas Baudin after his ship. The bay is a wide curve of coastline extending from Cape Naturaliste past the towns of Dunsborough and Busselton, ending near the city of Bunbury. Protected from the rough seas of the Indian Ocean by Cape Naturaliste, which makes it a popular destination for recreational boaters. The bay is extremely shallow, limiting the entrance of large ships. To alleviate the problem the amazing 2-kilometre long Busselton Jetty, the longest in the southern hemisphere, was built. You will have the opportunity to visit the Jetty, a great spot for a walk and also some fantastic photo opportunities. The bay attracts whale watchers, who see it as an alternative to Flinders Bay. The north west part of the bay is the location of a number surf breaks. Travel onto Cape Naturalist Lighthouse followed by a tour of Ngilgi cave (previously known as Yallingup Cave). Edward Dawson discovered it in 1899 when searching for stray horses.  Enjoy this day trip filled with food, wine, sightseeing and indulgence all at your pace.

About operator:

Visit Western Australia's top tourist attraction! Enjoy breathtaking views above and below the Indian Ocean from the Busselton Jetty – the longest tourist jetty in the Southern Hemisphere and second longest in the world! Spanning over 1.8kms (over a mile long), the Jetty is home to one of only six Underwater Observatories in the world. Ride the electric Jetty Train along the length of the Jetty, with 360 degree views across the ocean, and take a tour of the Underwater Observatory at the end. Experienced guides lead you through the natural wonders that lie beneath the Jetty where its piles create Australia’s greatest artificial reef, host to an awe inspiring forest of vividly-coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals and fish. Descend 8 metres beneath the water’s surface to view more than 300 different marine species in their natural habitat. Walking, photography, swimming, snorkelling and diving are all popular and be sure to visit the free interactive Museum and Gift shop.
