With its calm turquoise bays and relaxed atmosphere, Busselton is a great place for a family holiday. Just three hours drive south of Perth, Busselton is best known for its iconic 2km-long jetty. Originally built in 1865, it’s the longest wooden pier in the Southern Hemisphere. The Underwater Observatory at the jetty's end lets you view colourful fish and tropical corals.

 

Twice voted Western Australia's top tourism town, Busselton has a long list of tours and activities to offer. Have a go on the waterslides, flying fox, carousel or racing cars at the beachfront fun park, explore the region’s sparkling clear beaches and try your hand at fishing, water skiing, snorkelling, scuba diving, windsurfing or sailing. Busselton also makes a great base for exploring the Margaret River Wine Region.
