Well, March has brought us a continuation of the stunning weather we have been experiencing… not too hot, not too cold, just right for leisurely walks along the safe, protected beaches of Geographe Bay, sunset fishing with a quiet ale and good company. Guests have been reporting that while staying at our holiday house, Driftwood Cottage, they have enjoyed a family ride aboard the old-fashioned steam-engine replica train for a scenic trip to the end of the long jetty. They disembark the train at the Underwater Observatory where they can view what’s under the sea without even getting wet. Don’t forget to walk the short distance to the very end and take a picture of yourself “out to sea” on your Busselton stay.
Now that the summer months have come to an end, cooler evenings ensue, but that only means you should pick out a nice bold Margaret River Red to enjoy on the verandah and bring on the inner glow. The long evenings continue to present photographers opportunities to capture the glowing horizon at sunset before heading off to town to catch a tasty, leisurely evening meal. Families have reported buying yummy fish and chips from the famous Cod Rocks and enjoying them on the foreshore watching the sunset before walking home to the warm lounge of Driftwood Cottage and playing a game.
Busselton Fringe is a vibrant festival with a feast of artistic mediums such street theatre, stand up comedy, visual art, dance, circus, musical theatre, burlesque and so much more. The event runs for a full week with performances at various South West attractions such as the Busselton Jetty and Ngilgi Cave. Remember that that the Busselton Rotary markets are on again March 17, and spend your Sundays @ Caves Road Collective. They’ve got live music and local brews flowing from the bar. The whole family is welcome – currently enjoy a free kids meal with every adult meal purchased. Don’t miss the Vintage Portraits | Classic Paintings exhibition @ Vasse Felix and the Iain Dean, Yvonne Zago and Andy Quilty Exhibition @ Margaret River. Book a day trip to the vineyards from Busselton and you won’t have to choose a designated skipper.
In 2018 Judy Rogers exhibited Body from the Suitcase in St Petersburg as part of a four week residency in the Russian city, and now brings it to Busselton for the first time. Caves House Hotel & Jarrah Records presents The Waifs featuring Riley Pearce & Carla Geneve over two nights, Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st March. Performing in the gardens of the iconic WA venue, Caves House Hotel, this night under the stars will be one to remember. As one of Australia’s most favourite Folk bands, The Waifs will be headlining this show. This first time performance at Caves House will be unlike any other you have seen before.
Well, hopefully you can pull a couple of days out of your busy schedule and come down to beach-side Busselton and tarry at our dog friendly holiday house, Driftwood Cottage. Let the kids play cricket on the lawn, whilst you put your feet up and forget about life for a while… enjoy!
