Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • World's longest wooden jetty is not made of wood! Not sure if it is worth the AUD3 just to walk the 2km jetty. If you're too lazy to walk, then you'll have to pay AUD13 to take the train. One can enjo...  more »

  • The walk along the jetty will set you back $3.00 and it's worth every cent. Spectacular views and so much historical information to soak in. Don't bother with the train. It is small and ridiculously slow.
  • Very nice place to visit, the wooden made Jetty is about 1.8km from beach. The train on the Jetty is so interesting. Must go when you at Busselton!
  • Great experience at Busselton town and jetty. Beautiful beach, lovely area to walk around. Great cafes and restaurants close to the jetty. Nice stroll along the jetty (alternatively you can catch the train for a reasonable price). Love the history of this place.
  • My first time and I really enjoyed it here even though it was pouring rain! My best mate was over from QLD which made it more fun β˜ΊπŸ‘
  • Nearly 2km long, the jetty is a good walk with great views of the ocean. There were a lot of people fishing off the edge. A tourist train can take you there length of the jetty (ticket required). At the end of the jetty is an underwater observatory (ticket required).
