Busselton Jetty, Busselton

BUSSELTON | Opened in 1865, and extended several times until the 1960s, the 1,841 metre long Busselton Jetty is the longest wooden structure in the Southern Hemisphere. ⁣

The jetty closed in 1972 and gradually fell into disrepair. Throughout it survived cyclones, borers, weathering, several fires, and the threat of demolition. In 2001, fund raising commenced to help restore the jetty, and in 2011, the refurbishment project was completed and the jetty was reopened to the public.⁣

It’s a great spot to go for a long walk out into the ocean, particularly as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, like on my most recent visit a month ago. You can also fish off the jetty – the area is particularly well known for its plentiful squid.

There are also activities such as an underwater observatory, undersea walks, and scuba diving, and an interpretive centre and museum.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences.Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
