Dunsborough main strip gets revamp.
Microbrewery, accommodation and retail hub to transform Dunsborough.
Already considered one of Western Australia’s tourism hotspots, especially for Perth residents heading south – a $7 million proposal to revamp Dunsborough’s main strip has been approved by the Busselton City council.
It comes as the South West has strained under the pressure of intrastate visitors in the wake of domestic and international border closures.
The border restrictions have also left the region with a skills shortage in its tourism and hospitality sectors.
Dunsborough residents have also been struggling with diminishing rental options, with houses snapped up as holiday homes for people living in Perth or used as accommodation/Airbnb properties.
The new development, which includes accomodation, is hoped to ease such pressures.
So where is it?
It will be on the corner of Dunn Bay Road and Cape Naturalise – where Pekko Pekko is now.
What will it include?
The development will be a huge 8,600 square meter space, and will include a coffee roastery, 18 boutique accommodation units, and two self-contained short-stay apartments.
The man who is responsible for Little Creatures, Miles Hull, will oversee the microbrewery – so you know the beer part will be in good hands.
When will it be ready?
Construction hasn’t even started yet and there’s yet an end date to be announced.
Be what we do know is when construction will start, and they’re not wasting any time.
It will all kick off at the end of next month.
