Busselton Jetty Museum

The story of the many lives of the unmistakable Busselton Jetty is well told in this small, focussed museum accessible through the Jetty’s Visitor Centre. Follow the stages of the Jetty’s construction, destruction and resurrection on the informative touch screen table. Built and expanded for industry, the jetty is now at the forefront of tourism in the region. Its purpose continues to expand as it undertakes valuable research on marine life and provides opportunities for getting up close and personal with the wonders of the deep.
