If you love a good sunset then Busselton is the place to be! The sunset over the Busselton Jetty has been rated as Australia’s Best by a recent Experience Oz Poll.
The votes are in from the Experience Oz poll and the sun setting over the iconic, heritage listed Busselton Jetty has been voted THE BEST in Australia by over 1,000 people. Cable Beach in Broome took out second prize followed by The Great Ocean Road in Victoria then Glenelg in South Australia and Uluru in the Northern Territory rounded out the top five.
As well helping with an unforgettable sunset, the 1.8 kilometre Jetty is a pleasure to take a relaxing stroll along. There is also a Jetty Train that runs daily (weather permitting) that takes guests out to the end of the Jetty to the natural Underwater Observatory, descending eight metres under the surface of the Indian Ocean. With eleven viewing windows you’re sure to get a good view of this artificial reef with tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates.
The Interpretive Centre and Cultural Heritage Museum at the start of the Jetty gives you a great look into the history of the Jetty as well as having a lovely gift shop to buy something special to take home.
The Busselton Jetty is also a great place to try your luck at fishing. There are usually plenty of experienced fishermen who can give you a few tips or show the kids their catch of the day.
