Margaret River - A very special place

Heritage and Culture

Version_210_image

"Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit." (Jawaharlal Nehru, first Prime Minister of independent India)

Immerse yourself in history and culture - from the traditional custodians of the land, the Wardandi people to the first sightings of Cape Leeuwin by the Dutch in 1621, the Margaret River region is as culturally diverse as it is intriguing. Learn about the European settlement of Augusta in 1830, and the history of the timber, agriculture and dairy farming industries - the foundations of the region’s colonisation. Surf culture, wine culture and tourism are the basis of the region’s modern history. Search for relevent businesses below.
