Busselton Jetty, Busselton

4.4
The longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, Busselton Jetty stretches almost 2 km (1.2 mi) into the sea and ends with an underwater observatory. From a depth of 8 m (26 ft) below sea level, you can observe over 300 marine species, including colorful tropical corals and a variety of fish, sponges, and invertebrates swimming right in front of the observatory's 11 viewing windows. Children enjoy the Jetty Train, which seats around 50 visitors. This unusual train trip across the sea offers views of frolicking dolphins and local fishermen snatching their catch. Often described as Australia's greatest artificial reef, this jetty serves up both education and recreation.

  • Beautiful spot to sit down on the grass and have lunch, let the kids play or have a swim! Most definitely worth a stop over in this picturesque town.  more »
  • We felt like Noddy and Big Ears going on this little choo choo. A fun experience. We were well protected from the stormy weather.  more »

  • I really enjoyed Busselton Jetty. I love how underneath the Jetty is a coral reef, and the Welcome Swallows nesting at the end of the Jetty. The train ride was spectacular and the Underwater Observatory is something that you don't want to miss. The interactive displays were amazing, they showed the Busselton Jetty from its beginnings, to the present day. It is an all-round amazing place and I highly recommend you visit it.
  • Awesome experience, I really loved visiting this place. The staff at the visitor centre were very helpful, friendly and kind, pleasant customer experience. The train driver who drove us to the end of the jetty was also very kind and polite. After getting to the end of the jetty we were able to visit underneath the jetty via the large aquarium. To finish it all off we got back onto the train and returned back to start of the jetty then took a couple of photos. They turned out to be really stunning as a sunset picture. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone whether you are a tourist or a resident or just someone visiting from Perth! I would highly recommend!!
