Busselton was our next stop after bidding farewell to Margaret River. Busselton Jetty is the main tourist attraction here as it is the small town has the longest pier in the southern hemisphere and it took us a good 15-20 minutes to walk from the shore to the underwater observatory. The jetty is a good magnet for both tourists and locals and the long walk gave a great kaleidoscope of the life on and underneath the waters. The underwater observatory may not look like much when we arrive but once inside, the acrylic windows in the cylindrical structure provides a colourful glimpse of the underwater world with schools of fish swimming idyllically around the corals. This is the next best thing after donning diving equipment just to be amongst the fish. A must go in my book.
This is just the tip of the long jetty.
