What are the must-see attractions in Margaret River?
Producing just 3% of the nation's wines, the Margaret River region accounts for around 20% of its premium wines including Vasse Felix, Leeuwin and Voyager Estate. You can visit the cellar doors, tackle a vineyard tour to see behind the scenes, or simply settle in for a long lunch at one of the region's excellent restaurants. If wine's not to your taste, then enjoy the day touring some of the area's micro breweries and craft distilleries.
With consistently large waves that roll from deep within the Indian Ocean, it's no wonder that Margaret River is called home by some of the world's best surfers. Although some days in the ocean are suitable only for the truly gifted and brave surfer, there's plenty more to see and do in Margaret River than catch waves.
Spend a day kayaking up the Blackwood River, mountain bike through the Boranup Forest, bushwalk the Cape to Cape track or find yourself underground exploring some of Australia's best caves. Not your cup of tea? Then find your cup of tea or coffee in one of the region's premier cafes, or simply browse away an afternoon shopping or gallery hopping.
