Busselton Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome to Busselton

Busselton JettyBusselton is one of Western Australia's biggest tourist destinations. Its mild, sunny climate makes it the perfect place to plant wine vineyards; swim, surf or snorkel in the turquoise waters; or go "down under" to experience Australia's beautiful tropical fish and colourful, coral reefs.

Water attractions 

To get the best underwater view, head to the Underwater Observatory, which is part of Busselton Jetty. You'll travel eight metres under the sea in a glass observatory to experience all of the sea life in their own environment.

Busselton is famous for its jetty, as it's the longest timber-piled jetty in the southern hemisphere! The famous Jetty Train will take you along all 1,841 metres of the tourist attraction, and has over 50 seats available on trips throughout the day.


Busselton Beach SunsetAs part of the Margaret River Wine Region, Busselton is home to a fabulous Western Australian wining and dining experience!

The kids will love a stop at the Country Life Farm. Not only will they see geese, donkeys, ponies, goats, llamas and other farm animals, but they'll get to hand feed them, too! Have a barbecue and let the kids play around on the gigantic bouncy castle or the inflatable slide.

Busselton offers a truly unique experience thanks to the Horizontal Waterfalls in Talbot Bay. Massive tidal movements have created this amazing geographic wonder in the narrow passage between two gorges. You can take a sea safari to see it, but the best view is from the air on a scenic tour flight.

Hotels and Accommodation

Look on Bussell Highway or Earnshaw Road for a wide range of vacation rooms in hotels, motels and caravan parks. As an added benefit, you'll be close to beautiful sandy beaches!

If you want to be closer to Busselton's famously long jetty, consider the hotels or beach chalets along Marine Terrace. This is also a great area to find more secluded accommodation
