Owner description: One of the most popular tourist attractions and photographed icons in Western Australia, a must see for any visitor to the Margaret River region. Enjoy breathtaking views above and below the ocean from the Busselton Jetty – the longest wooden 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 operating Underwater Observatories in the world. Ride the new electric Jetty Train along the length of the Jetty, with 360 degree views across Geographe Bay, 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. Don't miss the Museum and Gift shop.

The Observatory was very interesting as you never know what you will be seeing, and you have sufficient time to observe. the train journey back along the pier saves a lot of energy, especially when you have walked to the observatory.

I enjoyed every step walked there. The jetty was long and has nice view. Good for my exercise as well as taking picture. We can swimming if you want. I paid entrance fee but not expensive

We travelled from Queensland to see the sights
of South West Australia and and its many delights
and it is why we write today
to say a huge thanks to many who may
have contributed in any way

to the simple joy of the Volunteers
for nowhere else would there be peers
who extend a warmth that was better than they
who attended Busselton Pier today.

Their welcome was warm with a genuine smile
answering queries devoid of guile
And with the Sea Princess anchored offshore
our visit to Bussellton couldn't be more...rewarding.

The waters of Geographe Bay bathing in Autumn's afternoon sunshine were stunningly clear. The somewhat quaint train ride to the UnderWaterObservatory some 1.8km along the jetty was appreciated and the underwater views through its windows were truly fascinating.
"Schools of fish flashed silver and gold,
Black and white Angel fish nibbled piers so old."
All in all well worth the journey.

Sincere thanks to those many mature volunteers and
that helpful Council Officer of the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River
who attended the pier on the 3rd April 2018

It was a great walk to stretch our legs out the Busselton Jetty. Very scenic. Easy walk with our teenage children.
