Just two and a half hours drive south of Perth, lies the town of Busselton, situated at the northern gateway to the Margaret River Wine Region.
Extending 1.8 kilometres over the protected rich and diverse waters of Geographe Bay, the heritage listed Busselton Jetty is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. As one of the most popular tourist attractions in Western Australia, it is a must see for any visitor to the Capes Region.
Construction of the Busselton Jetty began in 1865. Beginning as a mere 161 metres, sand drift resulted in an additional 131 metres being added in 1875. Further extensions were made throughout the following 90 years creating the remarkable 1.8 kilometre length.
This photograph was taken in the summer months when the water is warm and the rich colours of Geographe Bay can be enjoyed in all their glory. No filters required.
