The Margaret River Wine Region is truly one of the great holiday destinations of the world. Blessed with a perfect Mediterranean maritime climate, the four seasons are gently defined in the soulful corner of Western Australia.
Thereʼs perhaps no better destination in Australia to kick back and unwind surrounded by nature, beautiful vineyards and glorious coastline, including some of WA’s best surf and beaches. Lucky visitors can lose themselves in the ultimate get-away, completely refreshing body and soul.
Western Australiaʼs premier holiday region is an enticing mosaic of pristine natural wonders, premium wineries, fine restaurants, world-class arts & crafts, dazzling beaches, spectacular forests, warm and friendly locals and a charming persona all its own!
Blessed with a perfect Mediterranean maritime climate, the four seasons are gently defined in this relaxed and soulful corner of the country.
From the tranquil waters of Geographe Bay in the north, down the ancient cave-carved Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, through the picturesque vineyards and karri forest of the heartland, to the desolate beauty of Cape Leeuwin in the south, this is a place of splendid natural contrasts.
Here the southern seasons are gently defined, and nature radiates a deep vitality. The ocean forms the life rhythms of the land between the capes, its many moods governing everything from the perfect climate to the subtle nuances of another world-beating vintage.
It is a region for all seasons, whether it is autumn dawn walks in wooded valleys veiled in mist; cosy winter nights spent with good friends (and a great red!) around a roaring fire; spring picnics amid towering karri forest ablaze with wildflowers; or warm summer days lazing on a secluded beach by a sparkling sea.
Artists and crafts people find our spirit of place and convivial atmosphere inspirational, so Margaret River is a focal point for those who must create. The aesthetic urge also animates our winemakers and chefs, so a Margaret River odyssey is invariably a connoisseurʼs delight.
Many come to challenge the wild elements – just ask any surfer! Windsurfers, whale watchers, sailors, cavers, scuba divers, fishermen, bushwalkers, golfers, gourmets…all find a prize between the capes.
