Located on the sheltered eastern shores of Geographe Bay about 20km east along the coast from Busselton or 254km from Perth, Dunsborough offers an excellent base for exploring the Margaret River Area. Its protected beaches are ideal for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and diving and are amongst the most beautiful beaches in Western Australia. Meelup and Eagle Bay, just outside of the township, are great places to swim, snorkel or relax on the beach. The aqua green and deep blues if the crystal-clear ocean is breathtaking and really must be seen to be believed.
