Things to Do
This area is one of the most beautiful corners of Western Australia
and as you travel from winery to winery, you'll be stunned by the surf beaches, forests and quaint villages that make up the landscape.
Whether you choose to go on a guided group tour, self drive, live the high life in a chauffeured car or just cycle from cellar door to cellar door, you'll absolutely fall in love with the unique blends and flavours produced in this region's vineyards. Many of the wineries are also home to some highly acclaimed restaurants, so you can pair up your favourite wine with a gourmet bite to eat. Of course, if you're not much of a wine lover, you could always take a tour of some of the local boutique breweries instead.
Aside from spectacular wine, this region is also famous for its fresh produce, locally produced olive oil, delicious cheeses and handmade chocolates; all of which will perfectly complement your favourite bottle of wine. A visit to the Margaret River Chocolate Company and the Margaret River Fudge Factory are definitely in order while you're in the Margaret River
wine region. And if you plan your trip in November, you'll be able to further indulge your taste buds at the Margaret River Gourmet Escape, the area's biggest annual event, which hosts celebrity chefs and showcases the best of the best local gourmet food and wine.
If you need to give your palate a break, you can head to Dunsborough
and laze about on one of the gorgeous beaches, gazing at the bay's turquoise waters. Or you can hit the walking tracks in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and explore the hidden caves, visit the Cape Leeuwin and Cape Naturaliste lighthouses and take in the immense beauty of the forest. Not far from the national park, you can go for a walk along the iconic 2km jetty in Busselton
, which is actually the longest in the Southern Hemisphere. Busselton is also home to "Australia's greatest artificial reef", so make sure you check out the marine life while you're here.
