What a busy summer it has been down at Driftwood Cottage. Long, sunny days have seen in the last month of summer as many kids head back to school. For those lingering around Busselton for a little longer, there is plenty on to keep you busy and entertained. We have had many families who have visited our family owned holiday home and have thoroughly enjoyed their stay. A common feedback was the great location near the beach and the leisurely break they have enjoyed with their kids and pets. Many have commented on the outside hot shower to rinse off after a day on the beach, either fishing or just slumming it waiting for the epic sunsets. Being pet-friendly, the dogs also enjoy the outside shower just as much as the humans do!
The Busselton Rotary Markets @ Signal Park light up on 3 February and the following week is the annual Busselton Jetty Swim… a premier event on the WA sporting calendar and features a 3.6km ocean swim around the iconic Busselton Jetty. The SunSmart Busselton Half Marathon & Fun Run will be held on Saturday, 9 February 2019 and is managed by the Busselton Runners Club. There are three courses to choose from; the half marathon (21.1km), 10km fun run, and 5km fun run. Walkers are welcome to participate at the back of the pack.
Also, don’t miss your opportunity to watch the beauties from Southwest Mermaids swim past the windows of the Underwater Observatory on one of the popular Mermaid Tours! Tours feature cool information about Mermaids, interesting stories about the Jetty’s colourful 153-year history and the marine life that live beneath it.
It’s also Chinese New Year @ Abbey Beach Resort, so celebrate the New Lunar Year of the Earth Pig with a propitious feast at the Atrium Restaurant. The South West Yoga Fest is an event not to be missed. Mark your calendars and make sure the weekend of the 23-24 of February 2019 is open for this annual event. Sit back Sunday 24 Feb arvo for another chilled out Sunday Sesh’ at the beautiful Equinox on the Busselton Foreshore overlooking the Busselton Jetty. Enjoy The Riders’ original, acoustic, feel-good blues tunes from 3.30-6.30pm and catch their daily Happy Hour 5-6pm.
Have a fabulous February and check the booking calendar for Driftwood Cottage, drop us a line and pencil in some dates for a great, relaxing stay in sunny, seaside Busselton. Cheers!
