Busselton Jetty’s Underwater Observatory is one of the State – if not the country’s – most unique experiences. As one of only six natural aquariums around the world (and the only one in Australia), we feel like that’s a bold statement that holds up, watertight!
As winter approaches the appeal of heading down south doesn’t really diminish. Our priorities just change from things like beach swims to warm wines by the fireplace, and we think a trip to the Busso Jetty should remain on your to-do list, regardless of how cool the water is.
And they’d love to see you, with news the Busselton Jetty Marine Science team will be launching a new series of Winter Tours down in the Underwater Observatory some 8m below the surface. In fact according to Jetty CEO Lisa Shreeve, the aquarium is thriving during the winter months:
“Our marine life is unique at the Jetty and because of the shelter and protection of the marine sanctuary 1.8km out to sea, the fish really do huddle up during storms… So this Winter we have created a special tour for Aussies based on the questions our Tour Guides get asked about whales, sharks and storms, plus some other marine biology fun facts.”
The new tour will also feature a brand new augmented and virtual reality tour of the exciting Australian Underwater Discovery Centre, due for completion by the end of next year. Users will even be offered a chance to provide some comment on what they’d like to see in the new space:
So head to the Busselton Jetty WEBSITE now and start planning your next underwater adventure now, one of the most unique in the world.
