Margaret River

Tucked away in the south west corner of Australia, south of Perth is the beautiful Margaret River region. Located in the valley of the eponymous Margaret River, it sits 9 kilometres inland from the Indian Ocean between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in Western Australia.

Once a small surfing town, Margaret River is now a world renowned wine region. You can enjoy the region’s finest wines against a backdrop of incredible forest and ocean scenery. Indulge your tastebuds at the Margaret River wineries, home to fine wines that make up 20% of the Australian premium wine market. You'll find local arts and crafts, fresh produce, full-bodied wines and gourmet food.

There’s also plenty of natural beauty that surrounds. In Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park is Mammoth Cave, a limestone cave internationally recognised for its splendour and pristine condition. Here you’ll gain an amazing insight into the fascinating underground world.

Another must-see on any visit to the region is Busselton Jetty, the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere, stretching out 1.8 kilometres to sea and home to arguably Australia's greatest artificial reef. From the Underwater Observatory, see the amazing sea life with more than 300 individual marine species and vibrantly-coloured corals.
