In 1830 three brothers – Alfie, Charlie and Jack Bussell – disembarked in the hot sun after a long and arduous sea voyage on the ‘Warrior’ at the infant Swan River Colony, Western Australia. After a few unsuccessful years attempting to earn their fortune around Augusta, this enterprising trio set off into the wilderness in search of a better place to establish a farm. They eventually found a favourable site with good soil and mild conditions, and here their farm – and the brothers – prospered. This small pioneering plot was the beginnings of what would eventually grow into the thriving Margaret River settlement of Busselton.
