Proud to be Locals, Supporting the Local Community
Over the years Cape Cellars has supported a vast number of community organisations in an equally vast number of ways. Why? Well, we live here too! We’ve been members of the footy club, soccer club or the netball club, our kids go to local schools, we’ve participated in fun runs or festivals. If someone’s going through a rough patch, there’s a good chance we know them and they are customers. We know the value of resources, events and support services being provided by community groups and the army of volunteers who make them run. We’re happy to help out when we can. Here are just a few of the awesome community groups we are proud to support.

Hockey was first played in the Busselton area circa 1933. However, it wasn’t until 2000 that the various competitions came together to form the Busselton Hockey Stadium Club. Presently the club has clos e to a 1,000 members - men, women and children. Due to the high quality of the artificial wet surface turf, the club has hosted numerous international games since 1993. Each season concludes with the annual Busselton Master’s Carnival. This event attracts around 35 visiting teams from regional and metropolitan areas.
In November 2018, Cape Cellars and Dunsborough Cellars ran a Barefoot Bowls competition at the Dunsborough Country Club. The event was supported by Eagle Bay Brewery and Rocky Ridge Brewery with proceeds to Lamp Inc. Lamp Inc. provides support services for people with mental illness, their carers and family members living in local South West communities.
The event was great fun and assisted Lamp Inc in raising awareness of mental health issues and the services they provide. Keep an eye on social media for Barefoot Bowls 2019!
The Busselton Football and Sportsman Club (Inc) was established in 1956 and is the base for Busselton Magpies Football, Busselton Magpies Netball League, Rovers Junior Football Club, Busselton Men’s Darts and Busselton Masters Australian Rules Football Club.
