Busselton is a beautiful little town, and it turned on the sunshine, blue skies and warm weather for us. Yay!
We were told about Busselton’s ‘Holy Mile’ before leaving Big Brook Arboretum. The ‘Holy Mile’ is a stretch of land on a beautiful beachfront divided into 16 campgrounds and leased (since the 1920s) by various ‘not for profit’ organisations, mostly churches. They all accomodate group camps such as youth groups and school groups etc. and most have a handful of sites for caravans. With the waning of church youth camps over the years we suspect they look for added income by inviting caravans and campers. So we checked it out and have spent a lovely few nights at the Anglican Church Campsite. The sites have power and water, there is a laundry, toilet and shower blocks, dump point and you can walk straight onto a beautiful swimming beach. It’s very quiet, 10km from the town centre, and half the price of the caravan parks in town.
