Vasse Newtown, Busselton
Up until recently Vasse has been one of those typical Australian “blink and you’ll miss it” towns but it is now the scene for a major residential and commercial development named Vasse Newtown.
Vasse Newtown will be a completely self sustainable community that will accommodate the growing housing demand in the Margaret River and Busselton regions, offering a wide range of educational, business and health opportunities and a choice lot sizes and housing alternatives.
The development will extend over 400 hectares and include 1750 home sites, four schools, provision for a university, a state-of-the-art health care and hospital precinct, parks, sporting and recreational grounds, and at its heart, a village-style town centre.
The Vasse townsite is 11 kilometres south west of Busselton and was originally planned as the main Busselton townsite. Today most people drive right past the Vasse townsite on their way to Margaret River and Augusta. Upon reaching the Vasse townsite you are entering the Margaret River wine region.
