Busselton Jetty Update

It has been reported in the "West Australian" newspaper 8/10/09, based on information provided by the local Shire of Busselton, that the first 1.7km of the refurbished Busselton Jetty will open sometime in April 2010. It was planned to open before this date but our extremely long winter has delayed things. Access will be available to the Underwater Observatory when this stage opens.The full 1.8km length should open as planned in August 2010.

For the time being, the first 200m is open so that people can fish and visit the interpretive centre.

Latest update:

Contacted the The Busselton Jetty Environment & Conservation Association regarding the re-opening of the jetty as I'll be heading down that way next month.

The estimated date has now been put back to late May 2010.
