We arrived in Busselton, a three hour drive south west of Perth just after sunup. Such a long time since we were down this way the main purpose of our visit was to re-visit the Busselton Jetty. Stretching almost 2km out to sea, you may have to embiggen to see the Underwater Observatory waaay out there at the end of the jetty, the Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden jetty, see aerial shot here in the Southern Hemisphere. It was a lovely way to rack up a huge number of steps, but if not inclined to walk you can catch the jetty train, which I would love to have seen but we were too early..
what a shame also too early for both the underwater observatory and the underwater helmet walk 😉 A working jetty since 1865 it has survived 'neglect, fire, cyclones and government indifference,
thanks to the passionate and dedicated work of the community'. There are some gorgeous old black & white photos of the jetty over the years, scroll down here. The architecture in Busselton itself was a little disappointing so we decided to head to our next destination an hour away to explore and have lunch. More tomorrow. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. the jetty itself was so worth the trip..
