The Cape Naturaliste zone of the Margaret River Region is one of only a handful of places in @westernaustralia where you can watch the moonrise over an uninterrupted horizon. You'd be jumping for joy like 📸 @southwestsaltwater too if you scored this beautiful Shelley Cove scene all to yourself!

​So when the next full moon comes around take a drive north from the town of Dunsborough and stop at places like Castle Bay, Meelup Beach, Point Picquet or Eagle Bay Point to watch one of natures most hypnotising phenomenons. A plate of nibbles is of course essential! 🌕🧀🥂

The road less travelled offers the best surprises. From fertile farmland and Karri forests to family-run wineries, the backroads offer a diverse and uncrowded view of Margaret River.

See our Southern Backroads Trail for the hidden gems of the southwest; tiny galleries, fantastic eateries, lesser known wineries. Click the link in our bio.

📸 @wild_aperture_saga found the road less travelled within Boranup Karri Forest, where the towering trees are losing their bark to reveal beautiful salmon-pink trunks. Just one of the quiet and beautiful places you'll find when you #WanderOutYonder 🌿
...

I spy with my little eye one of Western Australia's favourite beach holiday locations found within the heart of the Margaret River Region. To get here you'll need to take a drive down a famous stretch of road through rolling vineyards, luscious karri forest and atop limestone karst caves. Any ideas where this picture perfect little corner of the South West @ashleighvader_  has found herself in is?

​We'll give you a hint, the bay here was once used as a load out facility for timber milling operations and now has a rich shipwreck history as a result, meaning loads of great diving opportunities! 😉
...

We'll never tire of Yallingup's beautiful beaches 😍 This is some of the most pristine coastline you'll ever explore, and the perfect place to #WanderOutYonderinWA.

Whether you hike the Cape to Cape Track which begins at Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, a little way north, take a surfing lesson or simply pop down for a snorkel and a swim, there is plenty to explore in Yallingup. After the beach, head inland and discover Ngilgi Cave, the iconic Caves Road and the fantastic rolling vineyards along the drive. Listen out for the Baudins cockatoos screeching overhead or feasting on marri flowers.
