If you're a keen West Aussie bird watcher you would be well acquainted with the Blue Wren, but have you met the shy Southern Emu Wren? According to 📸 @estebanthenatureman they would be considered one of Australia’s smallest birds (except for the tail which is counted), making them quite tricky to spot... but what a beautiful sight to behold if you're lucky enough to come across one!

Don't forget those binoculars when you're next out on the Cape to Cape track.

The Busselton foreshore has really made a name for itself recently as an all day entertainment hotspot in the Margaret River region. From cosy cafes to start the day, amazing beach front playgrounds to keep the kids happy, to brand new boutique breweries and beautiful evening strolls by the jetty, you really can't go wrong! 🙌

From the beautiful blue water and white sandy beaches to the towering karri trees and jewel filled caves Boranup just may be the most diverse location in the Margaret River region. It literally takes you no more than 5 minutes to travel from one of the best beaches in the south west over the ridge and into the depths of this magical forest wonderland the @wanderingwilsons are enjoying right here. What's even better is that the forest and caves can be enjoyed in basically all weather conditions, making it an ideal choice for those rainy days!

If you were to head out to the iconic Sugarloaf Rock right now you'd be greeted with a scene like this. Late spring is really where the Margaret River region begins to turn on it's summer colours with blue bird days making coastal exploration a must do on your weekend away. Just like @ju_lie_rch here, if you're a bit adventurous and decide to venture off the paved path you'll be rewarded with a gorgeous view like this. There's still plenty of the day left so what are you waiting for!? ☀️

Now this is a sight for sore eyes after a few hours on the highway headed to your favourite summer holiday destination. The road in to Yallingup has to be one of the most iconic views in Western Australia, cherished by many a road tripper! Once you arrive here it's like a weight being lifted off the shoulders as you know you're only moments away from a dip in that turquoise lagoon. 🙌

Canal Rocks is a thrilling spot to watch the water rush through a naturally formed channel in the granite. 💦 And when sunset comes around, it's an awesome lookout to admire the spectacular colours in the sky as well as the changing hues of the rock. This ancient granite formed hundreds of millions of years ago, and it's actually part of what makes the region so famous for fine wine - our granite soils and maritime weather are perfect for growing grapes! 🍷

Find Canal Rocks in the northern part of the Margaret River region, near Yallingup. Stay safe and stick to the paths - or the bridge in this case - and drink in that amazing view.
