Arriving by cruise ship to Busselton lands you on the shores of one of the most diverse regions on Earth. Sample world-class wines and food, relax on stunning beaches, stroll through forests, explore ancient caves and witness one of the greatest whale migrations. You can even take a train ride on the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere and view Australia’s greatest artificial reef without getting wet.
Cruise ships anchor in Geographe Bay and you’ll be ferried to Busselton Jetty – just a few minutes walk from Busselton high street and Visitor Centre, where guided tours are available to explore the Geographe and Margaret River wine regions.
Take a 1.8-kilometre walk across the waters of Geographe Bay or ride on the Busselton Jetty train to the Underwater Observatory. A guided tour leads you 8 metres beneath the waves to view the awe-inspiring forest of corals, sponges and fish. There’s even the opportunity to take an undersea walk along the ocean floor.
A 10 minute drive from Busselton leads you to the largest remaining Tuart forest in the world. Marvel at these rare ancient giants, estimated to be over 300 years old.
