Busselton Jetty

Busselton Jetty (A Refreshing Pit-Stop)

Busselton Jetty is a must-see for any visitor to the Margaret River region. It is pretty impressive considering that it holds the record for being the longest wooden jetty in the world.

How long is Busselton Jetty

Sign at the end of the Jetty

Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden jetty in the world, stretching at almost 2km out to sea. 

It was actually built for a practical reason. The shallow waters of Geographe Bay restricted ship movement; a long jetty would allow cut timber to be transported to ships.

Busselton Jetty Train

The Busselton Jetty Train

Since it’s our first time to the Jetty, we decided to check out the Busselton Jetty Train ride.

There’s something attractive about trains, especially red ones, that lure my kids to hop on them.

The train ride was about 45 minutes, two ways. You can opt to walk the jetty on your return trip. It will take you about 25 minutes. 

Train tickets include the Jetty Day Pass which gives you access to dive, fish, swim or walk the jetty.

Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory

At the end of the Jetty, there’s an Underwater Observatory about 8 metres beneath the water’s surface.

The observation chamber allows you to view more than 300 individual marine species in their natural habitat. 

Access to the Underwater Observatory is only possible via guided tours.

You can purchase a ticket combo which includes complimentary return train ride, a 40 minute guided tour of the Underwater Observatory and Jetty Day Pass. 

Overall, it was a nice day out with the family. We enjoyed the breathtaking view of the sea and spotted some birds too.
