Extending 1.8 kilometres over the protected waters of Geographe Bay, the heritage listed Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. As one of the most popular tourist attractions in Western Australia, it is a must see for any visitor to the Margaret River region.

Find one of only six operating Underwater Observatory’s in the world, a solar-powered Jetty Train that takes you across the ocean, fisherman snaring their catch and welcoming staff happy to share their local knowledge. At the Busselton Jetty, there is multiple tour options available with something to suit everyone.

Board the train and travel 1.7km to the end of the Jetty to visit the Underwater Observatory. Descend 8 metres to the ocean floor via a spiral staircase to discover an awe-inspiring forest of vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates. Eleven viewing windows at various levels within the Observatory allow visitors to look out on some of the 300 marine species that live beneath the Jetty. Provision of a lift within the Observatory ensures that this amazing experience is available to those with limited mobility. 

There are also a wide variety of tours including Mermaid Tours, Evening Tours and Underwater Helmet Walks. Whilst at the Jetty visit the striking boat-shed style Interpretive Centre that warmly welcomes visitors and provides a relaxed and friendly environment. Browse the unique and stylish giftware on display as well as a vast array of souvenirs and mementos. The Museum now features interactive technology with touch screens and a touch table offering an excellent insight into the Jetty’s colourful past. The Museum also provides information about the Busselton Jetty’s unique Underwater Observatory and the spectacular marine environment beneath the Busselton Jetty.

Very nice place. If you like walking on the top of the ocean, your dream will come true. Don't like WALKING? There's always a train ride. Don't forget to buy souvinier for your loved ones, ships run for a charity and a cause. If you are going to Busselton Jetty, I suggest you to make a good trip all the way to neighboring towns. They all have many tourist attractions. Highly recommended. Girish Sharma

Beautiful place especially for spring and summer. We didn’t get to spend much time there as we were on our way to Perth but enjoyed a wonderful stopover. They have cafes and restaurants nearby. Play areas for kids, you could stroll alongside the coastline. Just a lovely place for the family particularly for young families. Will definitely go back and do the team that takes us all the way to the end of the jetty. I think it’s known to be the longest jetty in Oceania. Read that somewhere so don’t take my word for it! But yes definitely going back and spending more time exploring the place. Daisy Rajan

Great place for a day trip. Nearly 2 hours of drive from Perth City. We went on the underwater observatory tour which was nearly an hour. Got to see many fishes and the explanation given was really good. We took the train from the main office to the observatory point. It was a nice experience to travel in an open old-fashioned train. Good information of the history of the jetty was given during the train ride. Loshia Mano

Unique, beautifully presented. Huge amount of open space for sitting, swimming and walking. Favourite place to take the family and dog..on leash. Great new brewery opening, lots of restaurants a walk or train ride to the end of the 2k jetty is a must. Visit the aquarium and cafe at the end. Spacious beach to walk along. Never miss a chance to visit. I've loved every visit and always find a new experience Pamela Hawes

Great place to visit! Enjoy a beer and lunch at the new brewery and grab a latte at the Goose cafe right on the waterfront. The view is spectacular on a sunny day. Perfect swimming for little kids and train ride at the jetty. Chantelle Winfield
