Discover the history of Busselton by exploring the newly upgraded Heritage Trail. Take a leisurely self-guided tour using your phone or mobile device to access innovative technology that brings the city's history to life! Log on to the website and sign up to enhance your journey with video images, historic photographs and heritage audio recordings at sites along the tour. Developed and operated by the Rotary Club of Busselton Geographe Bay, the Busselton Heritage Trail offers an experience unique to the South West. Proceeds from your $10 subscription fee support Rotary community projects.
Begin your Heritage Trail tour by visiting the iconic Busselton Jetty, a significant early WA timber structure and a valuable relic of Busselton's past.  You can take a trip on the jetty train to a modern underwater observatory. The next site is Railway House, now the Busselton Visitor Centre, where you can find all the information you need to make the most of your visit to the city. Here you will also find the Ballaarat engine, the first railway steam engine manufactured in the southern hemisphere and the first locomotive to operate in WA. 

Pay a visit to the Pioneer Cemetery before following the Heritage Trail down Queen St, where most of the sites are located. Turn left after St Mary's Church of England and complete your tour at the Butter Factory Museum. The Butter Factory stands on the northern bank of the Vasse River as a good example of post-WWI industrial architecture.

This was the original court building and is in beautiful condition. Adjoining at the rear are prison cells for viewing. On an alternative rear side is part of the Art Gallery complex. In front of the Court House on Queen St are tea rooms serving delicious Devonshire Teas. Behind the courthouse are ...

A very nice spot of the Busselton history, not so far away. You can enjoy the prison cells, guess what should it be being there. Just in the middle of Busseton. It is worth it a visit if you are around there.
