Recharge Yourself at Geographe Bay

Busselton Jetty

The 140-year old Busselton Jetty is the longest timber pier in the Southern Hemisphere at around 1.8km in length.

 

Popular with scuba divers and snorkelers, the Busselton Jetty is regarded as Australia’s best artificial reef.

 

The Busselton Jetty Interpretive Centre provides an excellent insight into the Jetty’s rich history and the unique environment that exists beneath the Jetty.

 

The Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory is located near the end of the jetty. Visitors descend eight metres below sea level to view the spectacular marine life that thrives in this unique habitat.

Whales & Dolphins

Geographe Bay becomes a “nursery” from September to December as whale mothers and their young stop in to feed and strengthen before they continue into the Southern Ocean. The warm weather and clear, calm seas mean Geographe Bay is widely regarded as one of the best places in Australia for whale watching and it is a breathtaking experience to view feeding calves and to hear the ‘whale song’ for which the Humpbacks are famous.

 

The world’s largest animal, Blue Whales are normally only seen in Antarctica, but have been increasingly sighted in Geographe Bay over the last few years.
