Categories: Zoos & Aquariums, Nature & Parks
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.

The jetty is 1.8km long which on a wind-free sunny day would be lovely. However you can take a train ride out to the end (which we did) and it takes about 20 minutes at a sedate pace. We had booked in... read more »
Myself and my partner took a long walk down the jetty on a very cold and windy afternoon. We paid $3 each to walk down the 1.841 long jetty which was thoroughly enjoyable despite the conditions. We ha... read more »
Hopped on the little train and took a ride to the end. Would have quite liked to walk back but only do return tickets. Beautiful clear sea, fish to watch and magnificent views. On a lovely day it's a ... read more »
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.
It's so pretty n serene! Very sunshiny! Great place to chase birds n picnic n take a nice meditative walk down the 1.8km jetty! Very pretty train !
Great place to visit. The train ride to the underwater viewing area is fun and the views from below the water stunning. Could spend ages watching the various fish swim around.
Took a while to walk to the end of the jetty and at the end a signboard showed the length of the jetty - 1,841km. Well, you could take a slow train ride and pay for it. Some seagulls and their nests and eggs were on the wooden remains of the old jetty at the side. Busselton Jetty is the longest timber-piled jetty in the southern hemisphere, and the second longest in the world.
Great curiosity and can provide summer amazing scenery. Definitely don't underestimate how far the round trip is if you intend to walk it.
