Day 30. Bask in Busselton's Historic Heart & Soul
The beautiful @busseltonjettyofficial was built 153 years ago when timber exports were booming and extended a bunch of times as the boats got bigger! There’s more than one way to experience the jetty; stroll the entire 1.81km out to sea, reel in a fish or squid, take a ride on the famous jetty train and underwater observatory tour, or dive with the fishes on an underwater helmet tour. Book your jetty experience today.
