Busselton is one of the most pleasant citys we have ever visited in one of the nicest locations on the planet. Busselton's giant jetty gets you OUT in the bay. Amazing.

For a city of over 20,000 Busselton always seems like a park-like seaside town. It is clean and well kept and is easy to get around by car, bike or on foot. The city of Busselton is well laid out, with beautiful architecture that retains the integrity of a history shaped by Geographe Bay...

The Jetty

The Busselton Jetty is a fantastic place to visit, so is the Underwater Observatory! The base of the pier is a hub of swimming areas, eating and dining, play parks, walking and biking trails, and of course the longest jetty in the southern hemisphere.
