Busselton

Some more photos of Busselton. We had a great day exploring the jetty and the underwater observatory. When the kids had had enough of looking underwater we caught the train back to the start of the jetty and walked to the swimming area and let the kids swim for the rest of the afternoon.

We spent an afternoon in Busselton is the South West of WA. They have the longest jetty with wooden pylons in Australia, it is 1800m long with an underwater observatory at the end. The water there is crystal clear and they have a big roped off area for kids to swim in.

We spent four days over New Years at Whalers Way, which is private property on the very tip of the Eyre peninsula in South Australia. While we were there we had our own private beach to swim in. The sunsets looking out ove the Southern Ocean were amazing.

The jetty was officially opened in 1881 and had an extension added in 1883. Total length was 1676 metres. Storms damaged the jetty over a number of years and the length has been reduced to about 1500 metres. It is a great way to spend the afternoon with the family.

We went for a walk on the beach during low tide at Port Parham. At low tide the water goes out over a kilometre to the channel. Even when the tide is in it just comes past your knees.

Small sea shells on the beach at Port Parham. My girls love collecting all of the pretty ones.

My little man on a sand dune before he ran across it. We were driving along the Young Husband Peninsula SA and went of the beach track to a beautiful little dune area. Checking out his footprints.
