People Power

The operation of the Busselton Jetty is managed by a community run not for profit organisation, Busselton Jetty Inc, formerly the Busselton Jetty Environment and Conservation Association (BJECA).

Formed in October 1987 as the Busselton Jetty Preservation Committee, Busselton Jetty Inc has been successfully raising funds and implementing initiatives for the Jetty for over 20 years. Without the dedication and passion of this voluntary committee and its community members, the Jetty would not be the tourism icon that it is today.

Busselton Jetty Inc has commissioned local historian Judith Murray to write a book on the People Power that Saved the Jetty. We hope to have this printed for sale in early 2022.

The iconic Busselton Jetty in Geographe Bay is one of the most popular tourist attractions in WA. This much-loved landmark, at 1.8km long, is the longest timber-piled Jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. 

But life has not been easy for the Jetty. Thrashed by cyclones and ravaged by fire, People Power has continually saved it from destruction and improved its structure time and time again. 

“Saving the Jetty” is the story of its history and the ongoing struggle to save the Jetty.
