Where is RAC Busselton Holiday Park?

International and domestic visitors will fly into Perth Airport. Find details about visas, prohibited items, currency, and safety in this Australia Travel Guide and tips on arriving into WA and other essential travel information in this Western Australia Travel Guide.

Busselton is in Western Australia’s South West, about 230 km south of Perth.

The main highway leads straight from Perth and it’s a straight road most of the way. It will get you there from Perth in under 3 hours.

Why not combine this with a Perth to Albany Road Trip?

There are car hire booths at Perth airport, but it’s best to pre-book your car rental. Choose from Avis, Budget, Europcar, Sixt, Hertz, Enterprise, and Thrifty.
To compare rental car company prices, I use Discover Cars, an award-winning car rental comparison website. They offer competitive pricing in over 10,000 locations worldwide and are have a high rate of customer satisfaction.

RAC Busselton Holiday Park Review

RAC Busselton Holiday Park is a 300 m walk to the beach at Geographe Bay but is set on eight hectares of natural bushland.

The massive Peppermint trees not only provide shade in our hot summers but are home to the endangered ring tail possums. If you keep a look out at night, you will see them scurrying around (look by the pool area which is where we saw them).

Accommodation in RAC Busselton Holiday Park

There are a few accommodation options to choose from at RAC Busselton, including motel-style rooms, self-contained cabins, powered and unpowered sites plus ensuite sites.

The chalets can be quite expensive but you are paying for the use of all their facilities, which will save you money if you have kids!

My choice is usually the ensuite sites. This is a camping site with the use of your own private bathroom. It has a toilet, shower, sink and enough room to get ready and provides extra storage. You have your own key so no one else has access to it.

These sites are located at the back of the park and overlook natural bushland. Bath and hand towels are supplied as are toiletries.

Our Thoughts on RAC Busselton Holiday Park

  • Location – close to Busselton, the beach but surrounded by nature.
  • Price – the campsites provide great value for money.
  • Cleanliness – the camp is kept very clean including the camp kitchen, amenities blocks, BBQs and outside areas.
  • Facilities – as you can tell there is a lot to do here for children and they have additional attractions during school holidays like camel rides (at an additional cost) and movie nights. It is extremely kid friendly.
  • Eco-Friendly – they have been Eco-Certified by Eco Tourism Australia for many initiatives including a composting program, installation of 66 solar panels which have reduced their emissions by around 53 tonnes per year, planted over 160 native trees and have a possum protection program to protect the endangered ring tail possum.
  • Size – Sites are spread out so even in peak season you don’t feel like you are crammed in. They are approximately 10m x 10m in size.
  • Noise – They have a noise restriction policy from 10 pm to 8 am.
  • Kiosk – The kiosk is handy to buy your ice or exchange your gas bottle.

If you are looking for a family holiday that has plenty for the kids to do, then this is the place for you.

  1. RAC Busselton Caravan Park looks like a very nice spot to enjoy the outdoors. I think the ensuite sites would be perfect to combine the fun of camping with the convenience of more traditional housing.

  2. Sounds like a great place for families and kids. I love the idea of having your own locked bathroom. I’m not into camping at all but I think I could do it under those conditions!

  3. I’m not really a camper so I think this would suit me nicely. A good mix of a camping holiday with a few facilities and amenities that mean it’s not too uncomfortable haha.

  4. This looks like a nice way to experience camping. When I was younger we would rough it out, but now I like to be somewhat protected from the elements and wildlife. Looks like a nice balance here, with amenities too 🙂
