Busselton is a city located in the South West area of Western Australia. It came into focus during the French expedition of 1801. It brought the explorer Nicholas Baudin and his two famous ships to the coast of Western Australia. The Bussel family, who discovered the bountiful farmland in the area were the first settlers here. In the present day, Busselton is quite popular due to its turquoise coloured waters and white sand beaches. It has one of the longest wooden jetties in the Southern Hemisphere, which is approximately 2 km (1.2 miles) in length. Some other interesting places to visit include the Wonnerup House, St. Mary’s Church of England, Ithaca, and Weld Hall. A number of annual events are held, some of which include the Southbound Music Festival, the Busselton Beach Festival and the Festival of Busselton.
