CinefestOZ 2021

Australia's answer to the Cannes Film Festival is coming to the Margaret River Region from the 25th - 29th of August.

Rediscover the Margaret River Region

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 award-winning wine country with a thriving art scene, incredible hiking trails, and 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.

#MargaretRiver @MargaretRiver

What an amazing world we live in, full of awe-inspiring scenes like this one! 📸 @hamishstubbs captured the bioluminescence within the water against the starry night sky, and gosh, what a true natural wonder it is! ✨

Which places, or phenomena, have taken your breath away as you #WanderOutYonder in @WesternAustralia? 💙

This week's storms have us hanging out for sunny days - is anyone else looking forward to summer beach hangs? 🙋‍♀️

📸 @dylan_alcock shot this beauty overlooking Meelup Beach, which is known and loved for its calm aquamarine waters. Surrounded by the Meelup Regional Park, there's a must-do coastal walk trail with amazing views of the bay. We're coming into Geographe Bay whale watching season soon, and pods of juvenile humpbacks have already been spotted from nearby Point Piquet. 🐳
So whether you visit in winter, spring or summer, best get your skates on to Meelup 💙
