Zoo / Aquarium
The longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, Busselton Jetty stretches almost 2 km (1.2 mi) into the sea and ends with an underwater observatory. From a depth of 8 m (26 ft) below sea level, you can observe over 300 marine species, including colorful tropical corals and a variety of fish, sponges, and invertebrates swimming right in front of the observatory's 11 viewing windows. Children enjoy the Jetty Train, which seats around 50 visitors. This unusual train trip across the sea offers views of frolicking dolphins and local fishermen snatching their catch. Often described as Australia's greatest artificial reef, this jetty serves up both education and recreation.

  • Make sure you head underwater for the observatory, worth the walk (the walk is actually better than the train, but we are fit an active) Really interesting facts along the jetty.  more »
  • We were lucky to go out on a clear day. Was perfect! Tour guide was friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.  more »
  • If planning on walking one way and train the other make sure you walk out as the quiz on the way out goes in that order. It's a great walk. The underwater observatory was very interesting and great to...  more »

  • Spent a great couple of hours first on the train and the observatory ( just like two kids!) the guide for the observatory KATE was so knowledgeable and passionate about her fish... and yes she did think of them as her fish:-) So if you're looking for things to do, if you have children with you or not, then try this little tour its a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
  • Huge! Cool netted swimming area at the start. A fee to get on. Not too much I don't think. Heaps of people fishing and a few clean up areas too. I didn't bother with the under water viewing thing at the end, but I'd still recommend a visit.
  • Great views, awesome attraction. Train is running there plus underwater observatory at the far end. Not for smaller kids, but 7+ will be impressed. Oh and looks like a good fishing spot.
  • Great Place... With or without Kids.. Great place for a jump in the water at many different spots along the jetty... That is what I like the most, to be in the water at such a distance from the shore for some good snorkling. The underwater observatory is great for kids and as I did diving underneath it it is awesome to see the wildlife around it. You have to see this place and walk up all the way to the end.
  • Gorgeous spot. Great for people who want to see some gorgeous blue water. I take all of my friends and family here to show off some of WAs best coastline.
