Undalup, Busselton is the seaside gateway to the Margaret River Region on Wadandi Booja – Saltwater peoples country. It‘s where beach holiday memories are made.

Located on Geographe Bay, Busselton allures holiday makers with its seemingly endless stretches of white sandy beaches, crystal clear protected waters, and relaxed family friendly atmosphere.  Most who visit return again and again, enticed by the city’s thriving events calendar or just to relish in life’s simple pleasures and enjoy nostalgic rituals, many of which centre around the town’s famous timber jetty.

Busselton is also the perfect base to explore the region and its key towns: Dunsborough, Yallingup Cowaramup, Margaret River, and Augusta.  Breathtaking views and endless adventures await those who disperse through the region – from towering forests and ancient caves to rugged coastline and secluded beaches. And of course, the region is also internationally acclaimed for its gourmet food, award winning wine and boutique beer. All of your senses will be delighted!

The beloved Busselton Jetty is the longest timber jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, and the focal point of our swim.

Extending almost 2km out over the protected waters of Geographe Bay, the Jetty is most popular tourist attraction in the region, and is cherished by generations of locals and visitors who stroll along it, jump off it, fish from it, snorkel under it and (of course) swim around it each year.

Used as a trade port until 1972 and has been ravaged by both fire and cyclone, the Busselton Jetty survives today thanks to the tremendous support of the local community and the hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Underneath the Jetty, the marine life is thriving. Described as Australia’s greatest artificial reef, the Busselton Jetty is host to an awe inspiring “forest” of vividly-coloured tropical and sub-tropical corals sponges, fish and invertebrates. More recently a dive trail has been created around the Jetty with the installation of 13 Underwater Sculptures for marine life to colonise.

To get a glimpse of the amazing underwater world without getting wet, catch the train to The Underwater Observatory, at the end of the Jetty. Or to learn more about the Jetty’s rich past and its exciting future visit the Busselton Jetty Interpretive Centre.

There are other major events happening in our region on the same weekend as the Busselton Jetty Swim in 2024 so be sure to book your accommodation early!
