The Busselton Jetty is as stated located in Busselton, which is approximately two and half hour’s drive south of Perth.
The Jetty is 140 years old and in 2009 is undergoing restoration (which may impact your visit at this time). It is famous for having the longest wooden jetty / pier in the southern hemisphere. This is 1841 metres long.
There is an Underwater Observatory at the end of the jetty which is amazing. It is small (accommodating only 40 people at any given time) and has a rural setting as opposed to the big Aquariums in the capital cities, however the fish are in their natural habitat and this is what makes it so special.
It has eleven viewing windows, at different levels for people to see the various coral and fish life.
There is also an Eco Museum in the stylish boatsheds which is located 50 metres off shore.
Keep in mind due to the limited number of people that can go through at any given time you do need to book in advance, I'm sure this is something that would catch many tourists unaware.
There is a jetty train, which also adds to the fun of the jetty. We decided to walk to the end of the jetty and catch the train back. It's a classic old fashion train, only suitable on good weather days!
Busselton and its Jetty are unique eco-tourism attractions. Take lots of photos, they will provide fond memories for years to come.
