Where should I stay in Dunsborough?
- For beaches: It doesn't get much closer to the action than accommodation on Geographe Bay Road or Bay View Crescent. For walking distance to the beach, the city centre is also just moments away.
- For national parks: Old Dunsborough (north of the main city centre) will give you direct access to Meelup National Park via Cape Naturaliste Road.
- For family-friendly activities: The southern end of Dunsborough or the north of Quindalup will have you near Xcape at the Cape, which is a water park for the little ones. There's also jetski tours available by the beach.
- For wineries: For all your wine-tasting desires, you'll want to find stays in Quindalup or its surroundings. There are also a number of vineyards further inland, including Palmers, Vintners Ridge Estate, Happs Wines Margaret River and Aravina Estate.
Where to stay in Dunsborough for cheap
If you're looking to save a bit of money on your trip, then you'll ideally want to stay on the western side of Dunsborough, further inland. Some of the holiday homes on the budget-friendly side are past Cape Naturaliste Road or Caves Road. You'll find these houses are usually more of a country stay with ample living space, but they may lack a swimming pool or jacuzzi.
Where to stay in Dunsborough for luxury
Enjoy a slice of paradise in Dunsborough with homes on Geographe Bay Road, Bay View Crescent and the waterfront of Old Dunsborough. These luxury and high-end homes will be right on the water or within a moments walking distance. In most cases, you'll either be immersed in views of the ocean or surrounded by trees for extra privacy. These stays are quite the treat with large, outdoor entertaining decks with barbeques, fresh interiors and multiple bedrooms for your friends or family.
Where to stay in Dunsborough for pet-friendly accommodation
Finding pet-friendly stays on the coast is not difficult with many stays situated in the middle of the city centre as well as Old Dunsborough. You'll find many of them are minutes away from the main coastal strip of Dunn Bay. Some dog-friendly attractions include Centennial Park and sections of the foreshore. We recommend these stays for their proximity to the beach as well as the large, grassed backyards they have on offer.
