Busselton, a city located 220 km south-west of Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is stretched along the wide sandy shores of Geographe Bay. The beaches are spared from strong winds, making the area a popular place for swimming, fishing, scuba diving and snorkelling.
The area was established in 1832 and was first settled by the Bussel family, who ran one of the most successful cattle station in the colony at that time. It takes its name after the Bussel family. The name was first officially used in June 1835.
