A million twinkling stars shining down on us ✨
Local photographer @hamishstubbs spent most of Monday night at Sugarloaf Rock capturing the magic Milky Way crossing the sky in this wonderful time lapse. A moonless night made for ideal conditions, and the Margaret River Region is great for stargazing thanks to really low levels of light pollution. Next time you’re in the region, head to Sugarloaf Rock 15 minutes drive north of Dunsborough- it’s spectacular day or night 💫

When the sun comes out in springtime you can bet you'll find us adventuring outdoors and soaking up those rays like 📸 @maryannebowden here. The Margaret River Region is home to endless seaside walks where you can immerse yourself in the rawness of this ancient coastline. Canal Rocks is one such spot with easy and safe access to get your fix of nature after being cooped up all winter. 👌☀️ ...

That's it folks, the tools are hung up and growing season in the Margaret River region wine country has begun. As you drive along the iconic Caves Road stretch vineyards like @gralyn_estate can be seen with fresh leaves budding out after being pruned back for this up coming vintage. In just a couple of months these rolling hills will feature a sea of green leaves hiding the south wests most prized possession; award winning wine. 🍷

Now this is exactly what we look forward to on a cheeky midweek lunch date out in the Margaret River region countryside. The fine folks at @swinground have been serving up some some of the regions best pizza for quite a while now but the fresh new renovation has taken the experience to a whole new level and this photo by @katie_kli has sent our food envy into overdrive. 🤤 ...

This is a rarity, and we're super excited to share it with you. Right here, in this ripper photo by local lensman Gordon Becker, you can see where two oceans meet by @CapeLeeuwinLighthouse, and where two rivers meet in the background.

It's a super special place, Augusta and Cape Leeuwin, for so many reasons, and this is just one of them. The Indian Ocean meets the Southern Ocean, and the Blackwood meets Scott River.

📸 @gbeckerphoto - you've outdone yourself mate!

Now, an important message from the lighthouse peeps. They ask you to please book ahead for your guided lighthouse tour. Winter's usually whisper quiet, but as this is the year to #wanderoutyonder, they're stoked to welcome more West Aussies than ever before. Be sure to check out the new Lightkeeper's Cottage Interpretive Centre while you're there - it just picked up a WA Heritage Award!

Ahhh you can really feel it in the air in the Margaret River region; SUMMER is on the way.. 🙌 We know it's still a couple of months away but the beautiful days have already begun to cast their gorgeous glow over the turquoise waters of places like Geographe Bay, Redgate Beach and the iconic stretch of sand at Injidup captured here by 📸 @sailor.jay. With some of Australia's best beaches found on these shores how do you even pick a favourite?? What's yours? ...
