Margaret River is a small town south of Perth in Western Australia. It is best known for its craft breweries, boutiques and surrounding wineries. Beaches and surf breaks line the nearby coast, whose waters host migratory whales (Jun–Nov).
Stretching between 2 lighthouses north and south of the town is the the long-distance walk, the Cape to Cape Track. The track fringes the limestone caves and sea cliffs of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. The Cape to Cape Walk Track runs for 123 kilometres along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge. It is between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west of Western Australia. The track features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology of cliffs, caves, headlands. There are also rock formations and an ever-changing display of vegetation and wildflowers.
Flanked by national parks including towering forests, pristine coastlines and rugged granite outcrops, the Margaret River region is the quintessential Western Australian holiday destination.
This is an award-winning wine country with a thriving art scene and incredible hiking trails. There is also a distinctly circular food philosophy with a great respect for the land.
With sheltered bays to the north, vineyards and surf coast along its length, and two oceans meeting at the southern tip, it’s time to rediscover the Margaret River region.
