We went to the Jetty to get on a whale watching tour during our visit to Perth. We arrived on the morning and plenty parking space available. As we saw the wooden jetty, the longest wooden jetty in the South hemisphere exposed before us. It...More

Great experience for Grandad to take his 6 year old grandson to the jetty for his first taste of fishing. Though a cold wind the fishing trip was a great sucess.

We were told not to miss visiting Busselton Pier with its underwater observatory, and we’re glad we didn’t. We took the little train along the 1.8km pier to the observatory. It was fascinating to go down five floors to the sea bed and look out...More

In school holidays it would be best to book, but for any other time of the year just turn up. We did - and had a great time.
