Busselton Jetty.

Longest timber piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere.

Construction began in 1865 as a mere 161 meters, sand drift resulted in an additional 131 meters being added in 1875. Further extensions were made throughout the following 90 years creating the 1.8 km length. After more than a century of use and servicing 5000 vessels, it officially closed as a port in 1973.

1.841 kms to the end… of course we made them walk the plank and back. We are that kind of parents. They loved it 😉

On our way to Margaret River.

Quick stop in Koombana Bay for a look at this Aboriginal sculpture.

Wardandi Boodja is a five-and-half-meter steel bust sculpture representing a Noongar face and South West families. The artists (Alex & Nicole Mickle of Safehaven Studios) consulter with various families in the region to ensure the image was accurate and the concept was to demonstrate that the face was “no one’s yet everyone’s at the same time” The sculpture has been purposefully designed in such a way as to recognize all the families of the region. A comprehensive study of historical photographs dating from the 1870s to the early 1900s, coupled with contemporary images and faces of Noongar people has enabled us to create an image of a generic Noongar man
