We are actively fundraising to build the Australian Underwater Discovery Centre RIGHT NOW!

Busselton Jetty’s Australian Underwater Discovery Centre project is at risk of not going ahead due to the pandemic’s hot construction market with increasing steel, shipping and labour costs. WA’s Major Tourist Attraction, the 156 year old Ecotourism Award winning heritage listed Busselton Jetty is loved by many.

The community has helped us to Save the Jetty before, and our unique community funded user pays model means that once the new Discovery Centre is built, we will be able to provide funding for all future maintenance required at Busselton Jetty. We began this journey in 2017 completing a Feasibility Study into building a large new Marine Discovery Centre at the end of the 1.8km heritage listed icon to add value to the existing Observatory which was built in 2003.
