There are 13 artworks to explore in these crystal-clear waters.
A holiday in WA is not quite complete without a road trip to Margaret River from Perth. And no drive to the the state's premier wine region is complete without a stop at the seaside town of Busselton, where a 1.8-kilometre-long timber-piled jetty - built in 1865 and still the longest in the southern hemisphere - is the centre of action.
But things are about to heat up even more this summer. Thirteen underwater sculptures by local artists have been installed at the end of the jetty, creating a trail that will not only get the snorkellers and divers excited, but will also act as a man-made reef that'll encourage colourful marine life to flourish in these crystal-clear waters.
The Mermaid's Muse (left) by Daniel Fisher, which brings a 2.2-metre-high mermaid face to face with a one-metre-tall octopus, is just one of the mild-steel sculptures you can enjoy as part of this underwater 'hike'. Just don't forget to grab a map and follow the signage to explore the rest of the artworks. busseltonjetty.com.au
