A small train service commenced operation on the jetty railway line that had previously been used to transport cargo. For a fee, the train service accommodated up to 40 passengers per trip and took them to the end of the jetty and back. This service provided access for disabled persons, mobility impaired, and provided storage for diving equipment.
Apart from tourists visiting the jetty as part of their South West itinerary, many locals continue to consistently use the jetty for fishing, walking, swimming, sporting events, snorkelling and diving. The jetty is an important part of the social and recreational life of Busselton. The jetty also began to attract divers from all over the world and is now considered to be one of Australia’s Top Ten Dive Sites.
