As Dunsborough forms part of the Naturaliste area, you can head there for some family-friendly things to do in Naturaliste. First on the list has to be a visit to the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. It was built in 1903, entirely from limestone quarried at nearby Bunker Bay, and was last in active use in 1996. You can climb the stairs and spot whales in the ocean from a viewing point above the coast and get refreshments at its small cafe. Simmo’s Ice Creamery is another irresistible attraction for kids – head to Margaret River to find it. You can also enjoy family picnics in the park, and children can amuse themselves in the playground. It also won’t be long until you’ll have your arm twisted into taking the kids to the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, one of the most famous attractions in Western Australia. For quality family-friendly hotels in Naturaliste, book at Bayview Geographe Resort, near Broadwater.
If you’re looking for more things to see in Naturaliste, Sugarloaf Rock is one of the most well-known geological formations on the coast. You can also go walking along the many Cape Naturaliste walking trails, which range from sedate strolls to hikes that require a modicum of fitness. If you want some holiday pampering, take yourself to Vie Spa for a range of relaxing and revitalising treatments, or spend some time along the Margaret River amongst the vineyards. A drive along Eagle Bay Road is a wonderful way to watch the sun setting over the ocean, and you can head to Meelup Beach for some sun-tanning and ocean swimming. Here, you can book Naturaliste accommodation at Abbey Beach Resort.
Whale migration season is from early September until around November to early December, and there are some really good whale watching points here. You can also go on boat trips to get closer to these awesome creatures. Humpback whales and southern right whales are the most plentiful, and you can also spot schools of dolphins. A great place to go for whale sightings is Point Piquet, at Cape Naturaliste. This is a narrow channel of water, where the whales swim an easy viewing distance from you as you look down on them. It’s an unforgettable experience. You can also take a whale-watching cruise from Busselton Jetty. There are plenty of places to book in nearby, so try The Sebel Busselton to be right there.
