There is a train service to Bunbury, as well as buses from Perth.

Get around edit

Cycling: The town, coastal area, and hinterland are all very flat and there are a number of shared-use bike paths, making it fairly easy to get around by bike. The traffic along the more major roads can be a bit hard going sometimes, especially as there is sometimes not much space on the hard shoulder.

West of Dunsborough along Caves Road is a cave named Nglili Cave. It is one of the deepest in the region and has many wonderful features. Weddings are sometimes held there. The lighthouse in the west is also very popular.
