Dunsborough (and the surrounding area) deserves at least two days, preferably three. Western Australian school holidays, especially the summer break over Christmas and New Year's Day, and Easter, are usually booked solid by Perth holidaymakers with families. One week in November is also crowded for "schoolies week." The summer months (December-March) are best for swimming and beaches, while the heaviest surfing conditions are often best during the winter months (May-September) when wet suits are required.
