Busselton sits on the wide but shallow Geographe Bay south of Perth so to have a port wharf required a very long jetty to be built in 1865. The result is, at 2km, the longest timber jetty in the southern hemisphere.
It is so long that it almost disappears into the sea when you look at it from the beach. It has recently been restored.
