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.

One of the best scuba dive sites I've ever been to! Great visibility usually 20m+ The diversity of fish and coral species absolutely blew my mind. Nice and shallow at under 10 m deep so you get plenty of bottom time. The sheer volume of fish far surpassed some Philippine or Indonesian dive spots I've been to. Just be aware its a long walk with dive gear to the end of the jetty. David b
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
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
I didn't know that it is the longest jetty in the Southern hemisphere. Pam the Underwater Tour Guide was passionate about the Jettys survival and gave an interesting and lively talk about all things Jetty!! The little train ride out to the end was fun too. I thought it was good value for money. Claire Meredith
