Things to Do in Busselton, WA

1. Take the Jetty Train on the Busselton Jetty (or walk)

Besides being a major “Down South” town, the Busselton jetty is a famous landmark that attracts people from all over. It extends 1,841 metres out to sea, but what makes it unique is its one of the few jettys in the world with a passenger train on them.

The timber piled pier is the longest one in the Southern Hemisphere and the second longest-timber-piled jetty in the world.

The iconic wharf draws a crowd all year round, and undeniable one of the coolest things to do in Busselton, WA is hop aboard the old-fashioned steam-engine replica for an easy-breezy trip to the (almost) end of the long jetty.

At the start of the jetty is a Visitors Center, where you can learn about the attractions on the pier, before you disembark the train at the Underwater Observatory, where you can view an artificial reef 8 meters under the sea without getting wet.

If you want to up the adventure, do the Busselton Jetty Undersea Walk, where you strap on an oxygen helmet and walk along the Indian ocean floor. If you’re into scuba diving, there are snorkeling and dive tours for all skill levels, where you can get up close to the marine life and corals below the jetty.

Or, you can walk the High Ropes Course.

Remember to walk the short distance to the very end and take a picture of yourself “out to sea” on your Busselton vacay.

2. Skydive over Busselton Jetty
