Busselton Jetty

Today's  Skywatch and  Good Fence comes from the coastal town of Busselton in Western Australia's South West. It is a popular tourist destination and one of my favourites. The jetty extends 1.8 klms over   Geographe Bay and is the longest timber-piled jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. The jetty train, if you don't want to walk, will take you to the end of the jetty  to the underwater observatory.  

Linking with Good Fences

  3. It makes me happy to see it again, even in pictures. It brings bag so many memories of happy travels of long, long ago.
    Luckily it is 1.8 kilometres long not 1.8 metres which would make it not even as long as a normal doorway is high. O.K., O.K., I know it's only a typo.
