Every trip through Western Australia should visit Margaret River, just a three and half hour journey from Perth. Once a laidback surfie town, Margaret River has evolved into a wine and food lover’s paradise, with world-class wineries, boutique breweries, and restaurants overlooking the rolling vineyards and surf breaks. Margaret River’s lively art scene adds to its colourful character.

 

The Margaret River wine region produces over 15 per cent of the country's premium wine and with more than 60 wineries, you’re spoiled for choice for a wine trail or long lunch. There are plenty of local gourmet delights to tempt your palate as well, including cheeses, jam, olives, marron (freshwater crayfish), chocolate, fudge and ice cream. You can walk off your indulgences with a range of adventure activities, from rock climbing to whale watching.
