Underwater Sculpture Park

Underwater Sculpture Park

Eight metres below the ocean surface at the end of the Busselton Jetty is a brand new, diverse and artistically eye-catching Underwater Sculpture Park featuring 13 stunning sculptures crafted by artists from across Western Australia!

These artistic masterpieces are a vibrant addition to the already diverse habitat of Busselton Jetty with each sculpture designed to extend Australia’s largest artificial reef, which has been evolving beneath the Jetty since its construction in 1865. Since it was built, the Jetty’s submerged timber and steel piles have transformed into a thriving ecosystem, hosting a remarkable array of marine invertebrates, and providing a sanctuary for more than 300 marine species!

The Underwater Sculpture Park and Artificial Reef Project contributes to the environmental preservation in Geographe Bay by creating hard seafloor habitats, a rarity in this part of the bay which is primarily dominated by seagrass meadows. Each underwater sculpture has been purposefully designed to serve as an artificial reef, offering marine life additional habitats within the bay.

A $4 Dive and Snorkel Pass can be obtained online through the link below or in-person from the Interpretive Centre at the base of the Jetty. We require visitors planning on swimming, snorkelling or diving the Underwater Sculpture Park to complete a waiver before entry but if you book online you can pre-fill your waiver to save time. A water-proof Underwater Sculpture Park map is also available from the Interpretive Centre for $15 to help visitors locate all 13 Underwater Sculptures.

To learn more about all 13 Underwater Sculptures and their artist’s, see the Underwater Sculptures page.

Please note that the Underwater Sculptures are not visible from the Underwater Observatory as the Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory Tour offers a distinct experience focused on showcasing the natural marine environment that has thrived beneath the Jetty over the past six decades.

On a good weather and visibility day 7 of the 13 Underwater Sculptures are visible from the decking of the Jetty. Entry to the Underwater Sculpture Park is via 1 of 3 ladders on the Universal Access Platform which is located on the west side of the Jetty just before the Underwater Observatory gates.

The Universal Access Platform is a shared space so please be conscious of where you leave your equipment, bags and trolleys!

Lockers are available to hire at the Underwater Observatory so please see one of our Tour Guides when you arrive at the end of the Jetty.
