Busselton


About Busselton

Busselton is a city located 220 kilometres south-west of Perth and was one of the earliest settlements in Western Australia. The Busselton area was named in honour, an early and notable family of pioneers who were the first settlers in the area in 1832, however the name officially used in June 1835. It is believed that the Bussells were not consulted about the name and preferred the name Capel after a relative in England, Capel Carter, but the name Busselton was retained. 

Life in Busselton

The main economic focus in Busselton has gradually shifted from agriculture to tourism which has grown the district significantly over the years. Not only is Busselton blessed with a beautiful waterfront including calm, white-sand beaches, superb whale watching and a lively foreshore with beachside cycle paths, it also has a buzzing cultural hub with a great food and wine scene. 

Busselton is also home to the Busselton Jetty which stretches 1,841 metres out to sea and is the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere. At the end of the jetty there is a world class ‘Underwater Observatory’ which descends eight metres to the ocean floor via a spiral staircase to display an awe inspiring forest of vividly coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates.
