With the intense heat, especially during the afternoon at places like Busselton Jetty, sun protection is crucial to enjoy a hassle-free day. Don’t let sunburn ruin your experience! Remember to pack a high-quality sunscreen suitable for your skin type, ideally with SPF50. Prioritise application on essential areas like the face, neck, arms, legs, and the front and back of your body to stay fully protected.


As the saying goes, “sun’s out, shades on” – remember to pack a stylish pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from the bright rays. With the sunshine in full force, it’s essential to have them handy in case the intensity gets too much. Not only will you be safeguarding your eyes, but you’ll also get to enjoy the breathtaking views of Margaret River and its scenic beaches without any discomfort.

Spring Wear 

Spring weather can be unpredictable, with warm days and chilly evenings. To stay ready for any situation, make sure to pack a range of clothing options. Include summer essentials like T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, sandals and warm clothing like jackets, jeans, sweatpants and covered shoes. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out Lunita Clothing at Origins Market. They offer unique and colourful hand-made garments that are perfect for the vibrant spring season.

Water Bottle 

The South West Region is known for its abundance of national parks, hiking trails and coastal views like LeeuwinNaturaliste National Park and National Park and Blackhurst Park. Keeping a water bottle handy is essential to staying hydrated and fully enjoying your experiences, no matter where you find yourself. With several water refill stations available, you can easily top up your bottle and stay hydrated throughout your adventure.

First Aid Kit 

It is important to have a first aid kit box packed for the trip in case of unforeseen circumstances and it should include basic items like bandages, dressing pads, medications, anti-bacterial cream, an instruction manual, and other tools, so do remember to always have one in your bag.


Whether you are a photo enthusiast or someone who loves to take beautiful pictures and breathtaking views, a camera should be one of the few on your packing list. A phone camera might not always be the best due to its quality and size of the lens, so bringing your own personal camera is something that you will not regret, and you can leave this trip with tons of spectacular pictures filled with unforgettable memories. Do check out Margaret River’s top scenic spots for photography, and do remember to add this to your itinerary.

With these items prepared and packed, you are all set to go on a memorable journey down south of Western Australia. So sit back, relax and do remember to check out Origins Market to experience some of the best there is to see and do in Busselton.
