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.

Yes it’s one of the iconic locations of WA, and the longest wooden piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere but it’s better as a one off visit as there isn’t much to do, well I mean that is free anyway. Busselton Jetty has a deep history and when walking on it there are checkpoint with information about what the jetty has been through and its extensions. The place is amazing for fishers without boats for its equipped with side platforms that go down to the ocean surface and its length of 1.8 km means it goes to the pretty deep parts of the ocean where more fishes live. The jetty also has many fish preparing benches/stations for scaling and gutting your catches for the day. Walking entrance for the jetty is free for under 16 otherwise you have to pay a fee of 3-4 dollars. Walking from one end to the other is a memorable experience just taking in the ocean breeze and scenery but again it is 1.8 km long, taking approximately 25 minutes to walk both to the end and back. To take the train, you have to pay 13 dollars which to me is kind of expensive so I would say it’s better as a one off thing. Then at the end, there is a natural aquarium and it’s very fascinating as I have been there to but I figure you would also have to pay to go inside but past the aquarium is the current end of the jetty. It’s a wide platform outlooking the ocean and a nice place to take photos and rest your legs. Again nice to visit for tourist but I would imagine that you would get bored after visiting it multiple times, I recommend providing little side attractions on the jetty that people can go to as they walk and it would make money for the jetty funds so people wouldn’t have to pay the fee to enter. Examples would be photo booths or like snack stalls/shacks that don’t produce rubbish that tempts people to put it in the oceans. Or just add bins. Another suggestion would be adding picnic tables or more resting places on the jetty so the family can enjoy the view on the jetty while eating or something.

What a great jetty - this is an extended visit even if all you want to do is walk the ~1.8km walk out and then back another 1.8km. Well worth taking the time to walk this historic jetty and breath in some fresh sea air! There is a small fee to walk there. If you not inclined to walk there is a small train for a fee(of course) At the end the underwater experiences you can have range from a “dry” underwater tour to plenty of wet diving and snorkelling opportunities

Very beautiful! I opted to walk the jetty for a small fee as the train was a tad expensive, I recommend the walk both for excellent sea views and the fresh breeze coming through. At the end of the jetty is the wonderful natural observatory. There is both a 45 minute and 15 minute tour. I recommend the 15 minute tour as they only take about a dozen people down and there is a good amount of time to see everything, take photos etc. (you also don’t really need more than 15 minutes as there really isn’t an incredible amount to see). Overall the jetty itself is beautiful, I would recommend it to people travelling between Perth and the Margaret river. It is great for those with a short amount of time in Perth or who are travelling between destinations.

Beautiful place. I’ve tried walking all the way to the end of the jetty. It’s a nice walk, nothing much to see if you don’t go to the observatory. Good spot for fishing as well. Overall, nice experienced☺️

Busy busy busy. $4 per adult to walk the length of the jetty, kids go free. Book ahead if you intend to visit the underwater observatory. It was too packed to accommodate us till hours later. Yes, the view is lovely but I think it is becoming way over commercialized!
