Geographe was initially joined with Peel in an amorphous region called the South West Coastal Plain, but this grouping was abandoned before registration under the GI process was finalised, and the boundaries redrawn. Geographe’s centre is Bunbury, its southern (or, more properly, south-eastern) corner is Busselton, while the Harvey River meanders through the northern boundary on its way to the coast. It is bisected by the Vasse, Capel, Fergusson, Collie and Brunswick rivers, which – as they descend from the hills in the east – create valleys with distinctive climates.
