Margaret River Region
Outdoor enthusiasts love the Margaret River Region and it's easy to see why! Family friendly attractions, historic sights and adventure await regardless of your skill level. The place is a hive of activity but there's always an option to find a secluded and peaceful spot that's embraced by nature.
Home to some of WA's most iconic natural attractions and scenery, Margaret River is like a playground for adventurers, hikers, mountain bikers and trail runners alike.
Stretching from just West of Busselton through to the Indian Ocean and then to Augusta in the South, the Margaret River Region is well known for its wineries but dig deeper and you will find it is a living and breathing eco space of fresh coastal air, ancient forests, otherworldly geography and breathtaking beaches.
The world-famous Cape to Cape Track will have you reach mainland Australia's tallest lighthouse where two oceans meet. The sunsets are just stunning on this awe-inspiring track and the climate offers the perfect set up for outdoor exploration. Travel on the trail from June to December sight Humpback, Southern Right, Minke and Blue Whales.
There are mountain bike trail options a-plenty in this region - all of them compelling and best summarised with the one word - "flow".
Meelup Reserve Trail offers beautiful scenery along the coastal path that meanders by Geographe Bay and its pristine bushland.
With such a well established history in wine growing, the region also offers some interesting trails to experience the sophisticated vintages of the region, like the Margaret River Cycle Food and Beverage Trail and the Certified Organic and Biodynamic Wine Trail.
