Busselton Foreshore Redevelopment
The foreshore area of the Busselton CBD has a high level of appeal for both visitors and local residents. It has long been a recreational playground for families enjoying the pristine beach of Geographe Bay, picnics and walks and is a popular location for events, focused around the iconic Jetty. One of Busselton’s key objectives is to establish the City as the ‘Events Capital of Western Australia’.
The Busselton foreshore project area includes 38.5 hectares of land and is characterised by grassed recreation reserves, a number of commercial lease sites of varying function, and low coastal vegetation. The City of Busselton has recently completed the enhancement of nearby Queen Street and has re-branded the area as a ‘cultural precinct’ that strategically links the CBD with the redeveloped foreshore.
