when we were in western australia we stayed in a beautiful town called busselton.  busselton is 21/2 hours drive from perth in the margaret river region. we stayed at the abbey beach resortwhich was simply lovely with a pool, tennis courts, bikes, a full kitchen and a spa bath. nothing like some lazy resort days to kick start holidays!

if you're off to the margaret river region here's some recommendations for eating out in the town of busselton.

eat at:
vasse bar cafe for pretty decent pub style food
the goose restaurant for an amazing ( a bit pricey) night out. such good food!
coco thai for some really well priced lovely thai food.  
el gringo's mexican restaurant for the best mexican food i have ever eaten. so good i just wanted to eat there the whole time! and for dessert we had something called 'death by chocolate' which was all the chocolatey goodness anyone needs- a giant cup of joy!
 ah, it's only the end of week 2 and i'm already dreaming of my next holiday.


  1. Yep Bussleton is lovely, much nicer than fancier (?) Dunsborough I think...
    Just wondering if you ventured further South to Albany, my favourite holiday destination in the West.

    1. I agree. I think Busselton is just such a lovely place. We didn't get to Albany this time round but I've heard it's great...I'll have to go further south next time then!
