Dunsborough is the jewel of the South West region, located on the beautiful shores of Geographe Bay. At low tide, the beach has shallow, clear waters, perfect for kids to play and splash around safely, and on a nice day you will find happy groups of visitors and locals alike paddling, floating, fishing and boating in the serene waters of the bay. Just outside of town there are some more secluded beaches, like Curtis Bay and Meelup.
Dunsborough is home to many lovely local boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants, and provides a hub for everyone to enjoy good shopping, food and entertainment. A laid-back coastal town with a lovely community feel, it experiences a large swell in population during high season, yet you would be amazed how peaceful holidaying here can still be, thanks to beautiful surrounding bush, leafy suburbs and long stretches of pristine beach.
This suburb to the east of Dunsborough provides an even quieter experience for holidaymakers, thanks to its pristine bush and residential-only stretch of coastline. Quindalup beach is a continuation of Dunsborough town beach, but the further out of town it goes, the more pristine the waters and sand become. It is a popular swimming beach, thanks to slightly deeper (but still very shallow!) and crystal clear waters. It is also an excellent location for all things fishing and boating, and is home to the local yacht club, a public boat ramp and a commercial fishing boat ramp. Dogs are welcome down the majority of this stretch of beach, but despite its popularity, it never feels crowded. The landscape rolls seamlessly through to the Yallingup hills, with all of its delights to be discovered. Not to be missed is the famous Simmos Ice Creamery, Goanna Bush Cafe, for excellent brekkie or lunch options in a beautiful setting, and Blind Corner for excellent organic wines.
