About Busselton Jetty
Visit Western Australia's top tourist attraction! Enjoy breathtaking views above and below the Indian Ocean from the Busselton Jetty – the longest tourist 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 Underwater Observatories in the world. Ride the electric Jetty Train along the length of the Jetty, with 360 degree views across the ocean, 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. Walking, photography, swimming, snorkelling and diving are all popular and be sure to visit the free interactive Museum and Gift shop.

Busselton is almost the Jetty. Not quite but it is the prime landmark for this town. If visiting Busselton, the jetty walk +- train, observatory, fishing etc is a must see and do. Bunch of other activities for those who are in to scuba, fish observing, beaches, water walk with breathing helmet activity things. We have been many time over the past two decades so know Busso well, but for first timers it is magic

It’s the must do activity when in Busselton! Fun and interesting to hear the history of this jetty and the dedication of the local people who would not let it be demolished in the 70s.

Thoroughly enjoyed the train ride to the end of the jetty on the electric train. Was an enjoyable experience and will do it again next visit. It’s a very family friendly place. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I’m a volunteer at Bennett Brook Railway, that use diesel and steam. So a ride on an electric train at Busselton Jetty was a new experience. Was also interesting to watch the train driver manoeuvre the little loco into position of back and front of the carriages. A great experience for any kid young or old!

A great visit, but I wish the weather hadnt shut the observatory. The train trip out was fantastic. Well worth it.

Today we visited the Busselton Jetty and Underwater Observatory in beautiful sunny weather. We bought the multi ticket for the train and tour, but they don't accept VETERAN Card?? That is the first time ever. Oh well. The Train volunteers were very helpful and really cared about the Jetty and its ongoing refurbishment. The staff at the Underwater Observatory were lively, and the tour was very informative. After the previous day's rough weather today it was pristinely clear and hardly any wind and waves. Thank you guys for keeping this place going so well.
