Busselton Jetty

Busselton Jetty

This wood-piled jetty is the longest in the Southern hemisphere.
Winter at the Busselton Jetty is an experience unlike any other, where you can stand in the middle of the ocean, under the crashing waves and ominous winds, letting your senses take control and guide your underwater journey through our Sea of Discovery! Make sure to use WINTER15 when booking your tickets at www.busseltonjetty.com.au for a 15% discount on Tours & Train Rides! (Excludes school holidays & public holidays)

Here you’ll find one of only six operating Underwater Observatory’s in the world, the solar-powered Stocker Preston Express that takes you across the ocean, fisherman snaring their catch and welcoming staff happy to share their local knowledge. At the Busselton Jetty, there is multiple tour options available with something to suit everyone.

Board the train and travel 1.7km to the end of the Jetty to visit the Underwater Observatory. Descend 8 metres to the ocean floor via a spiral staircase to discover an awe-inspiring forest of vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates. Eleven viewing windows at various levels within the Observatory allow visitors to look out on some of the 300 marine species that live beneath the Jetty. The Underwater Observatory has recently been upgraded with new technology, educational signage, mechanical  interpretation, local artwork, and improved acoustic panels and sound systems have been installed. Provision of a lift within the Observatory ensures that this amazing experience is available to those with limited mobility.

Whilst at the Jetty visit the striking boat-shed style Interpretive Centre that warmly welcomes visitors and provides a relaxed and friendly environment. Browse the unique and stylish giftware on display as well as a vast array of souvenirs and mementos. The Museum now features interactive technology with touch screens and a touch table offering an excellent insight into the Jetty’s colourful past. The Museum also provides information about the Busselton Jetty’s unique Underwater Observatory and the spectacular marine environment beneath the Busselton Jetty.
