Your Margaret River Region
The spectacular Margaret River Region welcomes travellers from around the world like no other destination in Australia. A pleasant three-hour drive south of Perth, Western Australia’s premier holiday region offers a unique range of pristine natural attractions, premium wineries and craft breweries, fine restaurants, handmade arts & crafts, unspoiled beaches, towering karri forests and friendly locals. Blessed with a mild Mediterranean maritime climate, the four seasons are gently defined in this relaxed and soulful corner of the country.
Margaret River is the name of a river, a town and a region. The Margaret River flows to the ocean at Prevelly while the Blackwood River flows to Augusta in the south. The region has an extensive coastline with 110 kilometres of beaches, bays and rocky points. The region comprises rural countryside, sandy beaches, native forests and national parks. From the tranquil waters of Geographe Bay in the north, to the ancient cave-carved Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, through the picturesque vineyards and karri forest, to the rugged beauty of Cape Leeuwin in the south, this is a place of stunning natural contrasts. It’s this diversity which has put the Margaret River Region on the map.
The region has four award-winning visitor centres at Busselton, Dunsborough, Margaret River and Augusta, where local experts are on hand 7 days per week to offer complimentary maps, comprehensive information and group booking services.
