Stay at the Beach or Downtown, or Sleep Amid the Trees - Accommodation in Busselton

Busselton's downtown is fairly compact - Busselton Jetty is a kilometer from the CBD - so if you'd like to stay central, the main question is whether you prefer to be in the thick of the arts and nightlife action, or a few steps from the sand. There are also a few more secluded lodgings in West Busselton and in the trees at Tuart Forest National Park.
