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.

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.
