The holiday resort town of Busselton lies sheltered along the shores of Geographe Bay. Here, visitors can stroll along a seemingly endless white, sandy beach while gazing out upon an endless horizon.

The newly refurbished Busselton Foreshore is a lovely place to enjoy a relaxing afternoon with free barbecues, skate park, new children’s playground and beautiful views of the bay and Busselton Jetty. There are cafés and kiosks, and a brewery and accommodation is currently being developed to add to the area’s appeal.

Busselton Jetty

Busselton is best known for its 1.8-kilometre-long, wooden-piled jetty which has survived a cyclone, storm and fire to retain its status as the longest timber-piled jetty in the southern hemisphere. An interpretive centre at the start of the jetty gives visitors an insight into the history. Visitors can stroll along the 148-year-old jetty, or take the jetty train to reach the Underwater Observatory at the end.

Described as one of Australia’s most unique ecotourism sites, and its best artificial reef, the marine life under the jetty is gaining worldwide recognition. Previously the privilege of viewing the colourful corals and abundant fish life was limited to divers and snorkelers. Now people of all ages can descend 12 metres to the sea floor to view over 300 individual species of fish, coral, sponges and invertebrates that live in this unique ecosystem.
