Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
On the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary’s Youtube channel, you can watch live streams from an array of animal enclosures including koalas, dingoes, platypus, reptiles and more. They have also launched an online education program, Backyard Explorers, which can be viewed via Facebook and Youtube.
Lone Pine’s ‘Backyard Explorers’ program creates a journey of discovery while introducing diets, habitats, adaptations, and plenty of problem-solving. Students are challenged to use their Backyard Explorer knowledge to piece together animal clues like scale sheds, footprints and food sources to learn which animals may be living in or around their backyards.
Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory
The Underwater Observatory has installed two webcams, one facing North (North cam) and the other South (South cam). Each web camera captures the action from different sides of the Underwater Observatory.
When viewing South Cam (left/top image) a single timber pile is viewed, however when visibility is excellent other timber piles can be seen in the background. A myriad of invertebrate life calls this timber pile home and you can see white, fluffy telesto corals and bright blue, yellow and orange sea sponges. A small dark brown or black fish called a Scalyfin also lives here and you may see it darting around the pile.
The North Cam (right/bottom image) faces two windows on the seafloor and if you are watching during business hours you can see the Underwater Observatory Tour in progress. Occasionally, a curious Western Blue Groper may swim up to the windows or you may see one of several species of sea star attached to the window itself!

Here you can ask questions via the chat widget and your tour guide will respond for an interactive tour. Their On-Demand Virtual Tours offer a range of pre-recorded guided tours of Busselton Jetty.
