Busselton Jetty, Busselton

4.2
#1 of 12 in Zoos & Aquariums in Western Australia
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.

Where to stay in Busselton

Though relatively small, Busselton remains a popular vacation spot, and the number of available accommodations reflects this. All the way from Marybrook in the west to Wonnerup in the east, hotels, motels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts follow the town's long coastline. Even those farthest inland put you within short walking distance of the coast, while many are located right next to the beach. Visitors who prefer camping should explore several campsites and RV parks close to the center of the town.
