Please Stay at Home

Australian Government has halted all Non Essential Travel

Pause Now, Play Later

Travel is not recommended between Western Australia’s regions. The community are adopting government policies around safety and social distancing, and working towards coming out of this sooner rather than later. We wish you were here, but for now please pause and stay home; we’re in this together.

There are lights in the distance, and there is hope. These strange days will pass, and the beautiful Margaret River region will once again be bustling with happy holiday makers enjoying our pristine beaches, star gazing the night sky, exploring the caves and making wonderful holiday memories.

Until then we’ll share inspiration for your next trip plus information about businesses providing essential services.

Doing it Differently

Nothing soothes the soul quite like a visit to Boranup Karri Forest 💚
Pack a water bottle and pop on your hiking boots. Bring your binoculars and a copy of 'What bird is that?'
Who else is putting Boranup at the top of their list for when we can travel again? 📸 @sustainably__green

We really, really wish you were here - coasteering with @margaretriveradventure, having the time of your life!
But alas, non-essential travel restrictions within Western Australia come into effect today. It's a necessary step in extraordinary times. Holidays are on hold for the time being, and we ask you to please #PostponeDontCancel.
In the meantime we'll continue to share inspirational photos to help you plan your next trip. We really can't wait to welcome you back to the region when the time is right to travel again - whether that's indulging in winery long lunches, horse riding through the bush or plunging into the churning ocean with the @margaretriveradventure legends. 📸 @mattwenman

Travel to the northern tip of the Margaret River region's surf-wine-nature-paradise and you'll find yourself at picturesque Bunker Bay. Right now you might see dolphins riding the waves, but come spring time there'll be whales migrating past this stunning beach! For that little slice of 'alone time' this is the place of your dreams. 😍

Is it weird if we just want to walk up and down these steps all day and repeatedly take in this iconic view of Smiths Beach? @paulamariamurawska sure has the right idea anyhow, we're pretty sure nothing would come between her and the beautiful blue Indian Ocean, except maybe an enormous white sandy beach! If you're staying in the northern end of the Margaret River region then Smiths Beach is one of the best afternoon stroll locations on offer.. You can access the beach from both the north and south ends for some nice time out in nature all by yourself. 🕊

Hands up, who is dreaming of their next #camping getaway? 🙋‍♀️⛺
📸 @rukdesilva checked into a million-star hotel with an amazing ocean view, sleeping under the Milky Way on the Cape to Cape Track.
The track follows 124km of glistening bays, deserted beaches and limestone cliffs, from Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse in the north to Cape Leeuwin in the south. Most hikers complete the walk in 4-7 days, and if you'd like to add this to your bucket list, check out some of the tour companies offering guided or semi-guided hikes - @CapetoCapeExplorerTours, @Edgewalkers_ and @WalkintoLuxury

We’re thinking of you all out there and sending good vibes from Hamelin Bay 😘

While holidays are off the cards for now, let's start planning your next #MargaretRiver region trip.... where will you visit first when you get the chance? Hit us up with any questions!

Photo by @endlesslyactive in the crystal clear water of Hamelin Bay near Augusta, the southern tip of the Margaret River region. Nearby you'll find Jewel Cave, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, award winning fish and chips, Boranup Forest, Glenarty Road winery and so much more.
