ACCOMMODATION BUSSELTON WA BED AND BREAKFAST B & B GUEST LODGE - BUSSELTON'S BOUTIQUE B & B
Inn the Tuarts Guest Lodge, is the ideal place to get away from it all, yet still be so close to all that the Busselton/Margaret River region has to offer.
A holiday is hardly a holiday, without being able to lounge around the pool. Here you can enjoy the pool area all year round as it's inside, but with huge windows facing north towards the lawn and views.
Being next door to the Tuart Forest National Park, there are a number of walks or bike rides you can take, from just around the block to several k's into the Tuart woodland, by the Wonnerup esturary system, and the Sabina River. Birds abound and you'll probably see Osprey and Whistling Kites, maybe a blue wren, one of many types of parrots and waterbirds.
Play a game of Boule on the lawn. Bring a putter and practice your green skills
HAVE A WHALE OF A TIME - During Spring, or take a DOLPHIN AND SEAL DISCOVERY CRUISE - During Summer. Or go FISHING from Gracetown- Summer and Autumn
Now you can book OCEAN ECO ADVENTURES, LEGEND CHARTERS and NATURALISTE CHARTERS at the same time as your room booking, in one simple transaction.
The pristine waters of Australia's South West are the perfect place to observe whales on their annual migration. Both humpback and southern right whales can be sighted in the region’s coastal waters between June and early December.
In June the humpbacks and southern right whales are spotted along the south coast, having departed Antarctic waters to breed and mate in the warmer Southern Ocean. September sees the whales start to head south again, many with calves in tow, and during this time they are commonly seen off the region’s western coast.
Whale watching is an exhilarating experience and can be enjoyed either from land-based vantage points or on a cruise. Whale watching cruises operate from each at different times throughout the season. We can arrange bookings for these great cruises with Eco Tours (we have personally tested them out and had an amazing experience).
There is a easy 1-2 hour walk around Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse area along the exposed western coastline famous for whale spotting close up. We saw a South Right Whale from our walk - they usually stay close in and are easy to see. Apart from the stunning coast line, the whales are an added bonus.
WALKS AND BIKES: We now offer bike hire (supplied by Busselton Bike Hire and delivered here see: busseltonbikehire.com.au/ for details and prices. ) and a comprehensive walks compendium with information about the wide choice of walks in this region. They range from the 6 - 8 day "Cape to Cape" (or any part thereof) to a stroll along some or all of the 12.5km paved foreshore path. Keeping fit and active has never been easier and more enjoyable!
