Jetties and Sail Boats, the Wonders of Busso...

Overview

Twilight Cruise in Geographe Bay Photo, Western Australia, Australia
Quote:
In the heart of Western Australia's lively coastal towns lies 'Busso' - with a harbour filled with picturesque sail boats, a town great for wandering, and the longest jetty...ever. Like other of Western Australia's towns and attractions, we found ourselves returning this spot again and again for some event or another. One of Busselton's best attributes is its location. Right in the centre of the stunning Geographe Bay - this is a great holiday spot not only for locals for Western and greater Australia, but foreigner tourists as well. Where a lot of the other smaller coastal towns in WA are rather known for their peace and solitude - the fact that you can have your pick of empty be...Read More

Before I sat down to write this review, I had a quick flip through my photos on this Australian trip of mine, and with a smile I came to a very simple conclusion. This would be an easy journal to write - easy because this little cruise I took on the Major Tom off Geographe Bay in Busselton Australia is one of the best things I have ever done. The pictures I did take - and I was tempted just to sit back and enjoy the view as I did once in Paris on the Seine - came out beautifully. And still they do not even begin to do the experience justice. It was two days before we were to leave the sunny shores of Western Australia and head back north to the cold of a late Scottish spring...Read More

Attraction | "Busselton Old Courthouse"

Quote:
Just a few minutes walk from the famous Busselton jetty brings you to one of the historic bits of Busselton, and a site worth popping in for a look at. Busselton's old courthouse is the oldest building in Busselton - built in 1854, and as such has some of the richest historical significance and stories in the area. Wandering into this little court house - which is very well maintained and keep truly in the spirit of the time which it was build, this is a place where you really feel the weight and importance of all that has happened there. It's not a very large place - and will likely take you around 10 - 15 minutes to explore. But it's a nice detour from the beaches and jet...Read More

Busselton Jetty

You can't possibly talk about the town of Busselton in Western Australia with out mentioning the Busselton Jetty. The two are inextricably linked - and one's fame seems to come from the other. The jetty itself is perched picturesquely out on the stunning Geographe Bay which hugs the harbour of Busselton before leading out into the great Indian Ocean. Taking almost twelve years to build, the jetty had to be extended many times over the years due to the shifting sands of Geographe Bay and the shallow waters some times making the loading and unloading onto the jetty a difficulty. In the end, the jetty stretches 2 kilometers out to it's end from the shoreline which is a magnif...Read More

Despite the fact that my time in Busselton was generally spent on more adult pursuits than the little family park known as the Nautical Lady Entertainment World - I did think it was worth reviewing as it is something that will be a highlight for many visitors. My own interest in it is something I will get to in a moment. The town of Busselton is a great summer spot for Australians and foreign tourist alike. I arrived in their fall, so the beaches and parks were less filled than I had the impression they may be at other times of the year. And still the entire place had the feel of a seaside family stop. Not that there isn't plenty to entertain the adults (either alone ...Read More
