Overview

wander - wonder - laugh - learn


Extending 1.8 kilometres over stunning Geographe Bay, the heritage listed Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. A must see for any visitor to the Margaret River region.

More information

Jump on board and take the leisurely train ride along the jetty. Sit back and relax while the driver takes you on a journey across the calm, clear waters of Geographe Bay. With 90 seats available and trips leaving throughout the day, the Jetty Train is the perfect way to experience the Busselton Jetty.

The Underwater Observatory, at the end of the jetty, provides visitors the opportunity to experience one of Australia's greatest artificial reefs. Descend 8 metres to the ocean floor via a spiral staircase to view some of the 300 species of vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates.

Come into the Interpretive Centre and browse the unique and stylish giftware, souvenirs and artisan pieces on display. The Museum offers an interactive insight into the jetty's fascinating past and stunning marine environment through a variety of interpretive signs, artefacts and touch screen displays.

Extend the experience with a dip, throw a line in or have a bite to eat on the Busselton beachfront.

Great spot for family outings. Heaps of cool places to eat and a great family environment. The train heads out to the underwater observatory (1.8ks each way) and costs $36 each person for the trip and entry into the observatory. Only downside is the seaweed. The Council needs to clean that up as there is a LOT of seaweed there and it is to say the least, on the nose!!! (hence 4 stars) Great spot for watch the sunset over the Jetty too. Definitely worth a look.

Horrible wet day but what a gorgeous place yo visit. Clean, well kept and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The Underwater Observatory is wonderful. So nice to see what's happening underneath the water. Well worth the visit.

It's so iconic and unmissable, a lovely long walk if the weather permits. Taking the train and the tour can be a bit costly, so that's up to you. I find just walking along is a joy in itself. The day we went we even saw beautiful rainbow! This is a must do if you come pass Busselton.

It had been years in between visits and am so glad I returned as its improvements have made the vibe much more family-friendly tastefully. There's another cafe in addition to Equinox which is sadly looking rather drab now. It used to be more fine dining oriented due to its location. I didn't catch the train this time but will do so next trip.
