Overview

One of the most popular tourist attractions and photographed icons in Western Australia, a must see for any visitor to the Margaret River region. Enjoy breathtaking views above and below the ocean from the Busselton Jetty – the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere and second longest in the world! Spanning over 1.8kms (over a mile long), the Jetty is home to one of only six operating Underwater Observatories in the world. Ride the new electric Jetty Train along the length of the Jetty, with 360 degree views across Geographe Bay, and take a tour of the Underwater Observatory at the end. Experienced guides lead you through the natural wonders that lie beneath the Jetty where its piles create Australia’s greatest artificial reef, host to an awe inspiring forest of vividly-coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals and fish. Descend 8 metres beneath the water’s surface to view more than 300 different marine species in their natural habitat. Don't miss the Museum and Gift shop.
