UPDATE - 30/8/2019

Objective: Community feedback has been sought on proposed plans for an upgrade to the King Street Coastal Parkland area on the Busselton Foreshore.

Status: The City has received overwhelmingly positive support from residents for the proposed upgrade following a recent mail out. Suggestions from residents and members of the City of Busselton Disability Access and Inclusion Plan Reference Group will be considered by the design team.

Some specific concerns raised through the Your Say consultation initiative included the need for a protective seawall, the extent to which the upgrade is required, and improvements to the carpark and footpath. To clarify these points, a seawall has already been built from the Yacht Club Boat Ramp East to the King Street recreational space. In terms of the cost and necessity of the project, the existing ablution block was built in the 1970s and is not connected to deep sewerage nor does it meet universal access requirements. The cost of the project will be part funded through development contributions which have been held in reserve to beautify this popular location.

Next Step: Feedback will be further assessed and concept designs refined. Construction is due to commence in February 2020 to avoid disruption over the summer school holidays.

King Street Coastal Parkland Upgrade and Renewal Works

The City is proposing an upgrade to the King Street Coastal Parkland area which is a popular recreational space along the Busselton Foreshore.

The City of Busselton recently conducted an assessment of coastal nodes to determine their use and current condition. King Street Coastal Parkland was identified as a priority area and has subsequently been earmarked for renewal this financial year (2019-20).

The City is inviting members of the public to provide feedback on the proposed upgrade. This feedback will inform the final design for the parkland area.

Concept Design Overview


The project aims to improve the overall appearance and function of the parkland. Key features outlined in the concept plans include:

  • improved access to the beach and carpark;
  • open views to Geographe Bay;
  • low-lying coastal planting and fencing to protect dunes and coastal plants;
  • a new universal access toilet block set back to provide additional recreational space;
  • new picnic shelters and BBQ facilities;
  • space for a potential mobile food vendor/seasonal kiosk;
  • two new beach showers;
  • a bike rack and bike repair station;
  • new pathways for improved connectivity; and
  • additional native planting (under existing trees and in the adjacent reserve area).
