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.

We didn't book in advance and so the observatory wasn't even an option and was full. But the train ride was worth the trip, and it's a really unique experience, with the jetty stretching so far out to sea. Thank you to the volunteers and staff for maintaining it!

Thank you very much Shiango for the very kind review! We often say that our staff and volunteers are the backbone of the Jetty itself so we truly do appreciate the thank you! Unfortunately tickets do sell out relatively fast during peak periods and especially with the recent opening of borders and school holidays so booking in advance is something we try to advocate for as much as possible, we do apologise that you missed out on the underwater observatory tour this time round. Please do visit us again for an Underwater Observatory tour when you're next in town, we would love to show you the other side of the Jetty beneath the waves! All the best, Lisa

We were initially surprised there is a fee to walk down the jetty but once we read the funds are to help with the upkeep and it’s a small fee with many unpaid volunteers helping with staffing, we were more than happy to pay. It was a bracing walk on a windy day but well worth the admission fee. Informative sign boards and a quiz will help keep the kids interested on the way and then there’s the underwater aquarium at the end of the jetty if that’s your thing, for which bookings appear essential even off season. There’s also a train running both ways if you prefer to save on the shoe leather. A nice way to spend some time.

Spent a lovely morning slowly walking out the jetty with coffee. Many other early morning walkers out too. Many fishing on the lower platforms. The observation area at the end was amazing!
