Another farm stay at Busselton was a great, quiet, out of the way location with the added bonus of fresh eggs!
It was a great spot for me to get some work done while the rest of the family explored.
I managed to get out to Canal Rocks which was a beautiful natural location where the rock formation and the beach comes together in a way that looks amazing. It is known to be a great snorkelling and swimming spot but, on the day we were there the waves were so huge it would have been dangerous to get in the water with the way they were smashing against the rocks.
Busselton Jetty is a famous jetty with its claim to fame being that it is the longest timber piled Jetty in the southern hemisphere. There is a small train that travels the length of the jetty while the story of the jetty and its history is being told.
Unfortunately it was a wet and windy ride for us but luckily each carriage could be fully enclosed. At the end of the jetty is an underwater aquarium and there is even an underwater camera operating there all time for people to watch what is happening under the sea at the end of the jetty.
On the foreshore near the jetty, Busselton has a fantastic playground, with a large ship, all sorts of climbing equipment and even a water play area. We found it so hard to drag the kids away, we ended up staying until after dark and were even more impressed when the playground and ship lit up with perfectly placed coloured lights.
Optus is the way to go on the Out There Internet system in Busselton, which was handy as I had a lot of Optus data left over that I really didn't want to waste!
