Busselton’s most iconic landmark is without a doubt Busselton Jetty. It’s the Southern Hemisphere’s longest wooden jetty, stretching 1.8 kms into the ocean. You can take a long walk or make use of the Jetty Train, which will take you to the very end of the pier. From there, you can go beneath the ocean to the Underwater Observatory and observe brightly coloured coral and over 300 species of sea creatures.
Apart from its iconic pier, Busselton Beach has plenty of other charms. It has calm water ideal for a swim, white sand and palm trees, and a smaller wooden jetty that encloses a section of the water in a natural swimming pool.
But you don’t have to be a beach lover to enjoy Busselton. Those who love a good bushwalk can find a favourite walking track in Tuart Forest National Park, the world’s biggest remaining section of (as the name suggests) tuart forest. History fans can wander into Wonnerup House, an authentically preserved farm house built in 1859.
