Festival hails effort to save jetty after cyclone
The 30th anniversary of the Save The Jetty Committee becoming an incorporated body will be celebrated with a free festival on November 25 and the Busselton-Dunsborough Times is getting in on the action.
Golden tickets will be randomly placed in next week’s edition, giving 50 lucky readers the chance to win a complementary Underwater Observatory Tour for two, including return train ride, to redeem on the day.
Busselton Jetty chief executive Lisa Shreeve said the event was a celebration of the community leadership that saved the iconic Busselton Jetty after cyclone Alby destroyed it in 1978.
“There will be performances, face painting, animal balloons, competitions, treasure hunt, time capsule, exhibitions, sausage sizzle, displays, bouncy castle, kid’s fishing clinic, Westpac Rescue Helicopter on display, giveaways and much more,” she said.
The jetty will be free to walk on during the day and will be followed by a a special “locals week” on the Monday, running from November 27 to December 1, allowing City of Busselton residents to ride the train free of charge.
To be eligible, people must pre-book and present their driver’s licence, with current address, or rates notice.
