Fun Things To Do
Winter in Dunsborough can be very special - the crowds have gone, but the wineries, scenery and galleries remain. The fishing is even better, and the golf courses less crowded. The large number of humpbacks and near extinct blue whales arrive in August. These can be seen breaching from the house balcony.
Dunsborough is at the doorstep of the Margaret River Wine region. Apart from the few hundred wineries, the area is famous for its beaches both quiet child safe beaches in Geographe Bay and surf beaches on the west coast, golfing, fishing, bike rides, and caves. There are numerous galleries displaying the works of local artisans close by.
From August to early December whales can be seen from the balcony, but for an unforgettable experience take the whale watching tour which departs from nearby Quindalup. Over recent years the numbers of whales have been increasing. During October the humpback numbers are at their peak. Last year the whale watchers at Pt Picquet nearby recorded a peak of 8 whales an hour passing. On many occasions when greeting guests we were able to point out 4-5 pods visible from the lounge room Occasionally blue whales can be seen - this is the only place in the world where they can be seen from the shore.
