Busselton Jetty, Busselton

4.4
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.

  • Had a great time! The train looks naff but was fantastic, especially with our little one who loved it. We went down the underwater observatory and were really impressed with the number of fish and different species - that was in winter. Apparently even better in the summer. Lovely walk back down the jetty. Recommend
  • Wonderful place, children loved the train ride on the jetty. Nice to just spend time on the beach and surrounding park area with family. Children loved the space to run around or just play with sand at the beach. They also enjoyed the Stocker Preston Express jetty train. Beautiful views. For those into history, Busselton Visitor Center is interesting to visit too.
  • What a cool place, Busselton Jetty! Great History. The train ride is a BIG hit with the children. Pretty cool for us Adults aswell. It cost around $45 for two adults to go on the train and underwater tour at the end of the jetty, was awesome seeing the underworld even on a windy day. Tip- i recommend being at the back of the tour. Once the guide moves on to the next floor the crowds follows and then you have the whole level to yourself to take photos and admire what's happening in the underwater world. You can still hear and see the guide. You just get more of a chance to see the marine life.
  • Stunning place for photography. Relaxing day out. Great family fun. Fun play area for kids. Great restaurants. Love the historic facts all over the jetty teaching about the history.
  • Its a nice walk if the weather permits, otherwise I'll take the tram. I had a stroller and was an easy walk. Nothing much to see except for the vast blue ocean and sky. Plenty of parking space.
