The Underwater Observatory at Geographe Bay
can be likened to a giant reverse fish bowl, with people on the inside, looking out at the underwater wonderland. Colorful ancient corals, multitudes of various fish, dolphins or even seals can be sighted through massive windows of the three levels of the Underwater Observatory beneath the Indian Ocean.
Busselton Jetty is not the only place to fish; catch whiting, herring and skipjack right off the beach. Squid, blue manna crabs are specialties and can be caught in abundance during season. Reach the deeper waters by boat to reel in larger species such as dhufish, salmon, small sharks, crayfish and other reef-dwelling fish. The Blue Water Classic fishing competition attracts international attention during March and April.
In the Busselton area you are always near one of their white sandy beaches and surrounded by beautiful native forests with old, shady Peppermint trees. While Busselton boasts the infrastructure of a modern society, there are artists and artisans producing distinctive "down south" Western Australian wares within a stone’s throw of your accommodation.
