Margaret River and South West Holidays

Just a three hour drive from the skyscrapers of Perth, Margaret River holidays offer an indulgent sensory escape for foodies, thrill seekers and romantics who enjoy the finer things in life. This sunshine paradise on the Indian Ocean promises mouth-watering produce, exhilarating outdoor adventures, and outstanding natural beauty, all with a side of laid-back surfer town charm. 

Sit back and soak up the abundant sunshine with a large glass of red in hand – Margaret River produces more than a fifth of Australia’s premium wine, and tasting tours are aplenty. There are over 200 sunny vineyards to tickle your tastebuds, but some of the most celebrated include Vasse Felix, Leeuwin and Voyager Estate. Once you’ve decided on a boutique bottle, pair it with a delicious cheese from the Margaret River Dairy Company, or head to the Margaret River Chocolate Company where the sumptuous handmade treats will satisfy even the biggest chocolate craving. 

Margaret River holidays: catering to every kind of adventurer

South West Australia holidays offer access to some of the most stunning landscapes in the world. The Margaret River coastline stretches from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, with plenty of opportunities to beach-hop in between. Dip your toes in Eagle Bay, or ride the turquoise waves at Margaret River Mouth. 

From June to November, you can take a whale-watching tour on Geographe Bay, when around 35,000 of these magnificent mammals migrate from the Antarctic to southwestern Australia each year. Back on dry land, lace up your hiking boots to conquer the 87 mile Cape to Cape track, or trek in the shadows of the gigantic karri trees at Warren National Park. Alternatively, have a subterranean adventure on your South West Australia holidays in one of Margaret River’s six show caves. See Lake Cave’s suspended limestone table, or let the megafauna fossils at Mammoth Cave transport you back to the Jurassic.

    “Margaret River’s coastline sparkles with a multitude of pristine beaches, but Busselton Beach is my favourite. Home to Australia’s longest jetty, this picturesque pier is made immediately recognisable by its famous blue and white beach cabins.”

    “Adventure seekers can plunge into the jaw-dropping Jewel Cave to see the longest straw stalactite on public show, go rock climbing, abseiling, mountain biking and canoeing, or throw in a line and chase some snapper. Afterwards, venture inland to be dwarfed by Margaret River’s majestic karri trees – some of the world’s tallest hardwoods.”
