Looking to cool off during the hot summer months, Margaret River makes for the perfect getaway from Perth. Situated in WA’s South West Margaret River is a world renowned wine region, meaning you’ve come to the right place if you’re grape over grain! However, saying that, there’s also the chance to do a spot of beer tasting whilst here, so beer drinkers won’t be disappointed.

Lots to experience on the way

Situated 269 km south of Perth, the drive down to Margaret River needn’t be done all in one go. Meaning you can stop off in locations such as Busselton to take in the super long pier over a burger, or head to Georgraphe Bay and see if you can spot a dolphin or two.

Lush Abundance of woodland

Upon arriving in Margaret River you’ll be confronted by a lush abundance of woodland, shading you from the hot WA sun. With a couple of supermarkets on offer it’s quite easy to stock up on supplies if you’re thinking about camping near the beach at  a site such as Prevelley.

Go camping

The great thing about camping means you’ll be able to save a little money on accommodation, meaning you’ll have more for a wine tour. The campsites here are generally well equiped meaning you can BBQ and shower as well as use proper WC facilities, so you can leave any prissy panic back in Perth.

Epic Waves

It’s not just wine that Margaret River is good for. You’ll also find some pretty epic waves crashing on the many beautiful beaches, so if you’re a keen surfer, don’t forget your board or make sure you find out where you can hire one before arriving.

Go Margaret River

In town you’ll also find a few boutique-style cafe’s meaning you can certainly get a decent meal if you don’t fancy BBQ-ing.  Just make sure you do stock up before arriving if you’re planning on visiting on a bank holiday as everything will be shut! And we mean everything!
