Our Busselton accommodation is perfect for a relaxed beach holiday or as a base for exploring the Margaret River wine region. Just three hours' drive south of Perth, Busselton is renowned for its beautiful beaches, calm bays and iconic jetty. Built in 1865, the historic jetty is the southern hemisphere's longest wooden pier and has been described as Australia's greatest artificial reef. Visit the Underwater Observatory at the end of the jetty and descend 8m below see level to see around 300 species of amazingly colourful marine life. To learn of the jetty's history and the marine environment, visit the Interpretative Centre, built 50m offshore. For another glimpse into the town's history visit the Old Court House Complex. Built between 1854 and 1854 the building was used as a courtroom, gaol, post office, stables and bond store and today is a community arts centre with a gallery and café.
