Busselton Jetty Museum
The 152 year-old Busselton Jetty is a 1.8 kilometre-long timber-piled jetty, and the longest in the Southern Hemisphere. The Jetty is an iconic and much-loved community asset used by the agriculture and timber industries, sailors, anglers and tourists since 1865.
This unique attraction continues to grow as the leading tourist experience in the South West and as a significant attraction for Western Australia with over 460,000 visitors each year.
The Busselton Jetty Museum, located within the Interpretative Centre, brings the history of the Busselton Jetty to life and ensures it is captured and interpreted for future generations. The Museum received a multimedia makeover in March 2017 and the refreshed Museum offers a new and invigorated visitor experience, with interactive, immersive creative technologies.
Jetty to Jetty Walk Trail, Broome
Situated in Yawuru country, Nyamba Buru Yawuru’s Jetty to Jetty heritage walk trail spans 13 historical and cultural sites between Streeter’s Jetty and the site of Broome’s Old Jetty.
Distinctive red interpretive signs and minimalist seating mark the self-guided trail along the foreshore of Roebuck Bay and through Broome’s historic Chinatown. A smartphone App presents stories from local people about the country, the pearling industry, pearl shell diving, working in the foreshore pearling sheds, pearling masters, family life, shell-graders, jetty workers, and others who bring to life the pearling heritage and multicultural character of Broome, and the beauty of Roebuck Bay.
Old Onslow Interpretative Signage
The Old Onslow Conservation project is an exemplar of local and state government working in partnership with industry to transform this State Registered heritage place into an iconic display of the region’s rich and diverse history.
The project produced outstanding interpretative signage sharing the story of Old Onslow as one of struggle, between nature and man, between ancient custodians, settlers and immigrants and between exploitation and cooperation. The interpretation and conservation works have given a new lease of life to a previously ghostly town, now a must-see attraction for visitors traveling to the North West.
