Create an itinerary including Busselton Jetty
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.

  • Loved loved loved this place. Fantastic park, Foreshore and the train ride to the underwater observatory was fun. The volunteers were so lovely to the children. Will definitely go back. The Pirate Ship park, the children would have spent all day AND the beach and water was also amazing but a little cold.
  • Nice walk along the jetty, well worth the visit! When we got to the end we saw the aquarium and asked if we could enter and we're told yes all good, we can join the group that just left. Paid $18 per person and as soon as we got downstairs we were continually harassed to leave. We were told me were 'late' and we need to go back up stairs. You cannot be late for something that we never had any booking or set time for. Once we had been forced to leave without seeing anything I asked some further questions at the front counter. Turns out we were sold tickets 5 minutes late for a 15 minute self tour. This was not explained to us right at the start when all we did walk in and ask if its possible to view the aquarium. Overall we found the staff rude and we were refused a refund for a lot of money to walk up and down stairs which I can do for free at home. Overall, would definitely go walk the full length of the jetty, saw plenty of dolphins along the way which was nice. Don't bother with the aquarium unless you like throwing money away.
