Travel – Busselton, Western Australia


Busselton Jetty Panorama from the back, Busselton, Western Australia

Busselton Jetty was looking as pretty as a picture this week…

In the cute little blue timber buildings are

the infomation centre, musem and

the underwater observatory.

A panorama of a loan fisherman on Buselton Jetty just

before sunset heading out along it’s length

to catch tonights dinner.

I think Sepia looks good for this image, it simplifies things.

Busselton Jetty closeup black and white  panorama, Western Australia

This is a black & white panorama of Busselton Jetty.

Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden jetty in the Southern

Hemisphere and is 2 – 3kms in length. From memory it was

used to get timber from the Karri and Jarrah forests of

Western Australia loaded on to ships to be exported

to the rest of the world via a train that ran on

the old jetty out to the ships lying in the

deep water at the end of the jetty.

Travel Tip: A visit to the

underwater observatory gives you a fish’s eye view

of the beautiful marine life that lives under the jetty,

including schools of fish, sponges and corals.

The jetty is under repair until early 2010, but

you can still access the museum, information

centre and the first 200m of the Jetty.

For more information about the jetty and

to view the live underwater cam

or watch video’s of the fish life visit
