Can you swim in the Margaret River?
One of the ultimate family friendly destinations to go swimming in the Margaret River Region is at the Busselton Foreshore. During the warmer months the beach is shallow, clear and calm – almost like glass. At the beach there is a little jetty with ladders, which people like to walk along or jump off.
