Rediscover

The Margaret River region is now open to its neighbouring borders and is ready to welcome those who can visit.

Plan your adventure

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.

National Reconciliation Week

The region is celebrating the 2020 Reconciliation Week theme – In This Together.
We acknowledge the Wadandi (Saltwater and Forest) people as the traditional owners of this region. Whilst visiting, we ask that you walk softly, taking the time to listen and care for Boodja (Country).

#MargaretRiver @MargaretRiver

We may not have many zebras in the Margaret River region but we have plenty of Old Wives! Scientifically known as Enoplosus armatus, this angelic fish found under the @busseltonjettyofficial gets its common names from the striking patterns across its body (Zebra Fish) and the grinding teeth sound it makes when caught (Old Wife). This school here is totally protected however as they reside at the underwater observatory at the end of the jetty, which reopens for tours this weekend. You can enjoy spectacular views of the Geographe Bay marine life like @huntingforparadise here when you next visit the Southern Hemisphere's longest wooden pier!

Gooood morning Augusta! No matter where you are in the Margaret River region it's always worth getting up for sunrise, however the riverbanks of the Blackwood provide a serene beauty that is truly unique. With the sounds of migratory birds starting their day and  steamy air rising above still water, the scene is set for a day of exploring deep into the surrounding national parks and up-river tributaries. Australia's south western most town is without a doubt a place where #AdventureAwaits.

It's not often you're immersed in true darkness, stillness and quietude... we think it's lovely! @from.miles.away enjoyed a moment of calm in Lake Cave @LakeCaveMR deep below Boranup Forest.

The famous caves of the region are open for tours once again, and there's never been a better time to check out these crystal wonderlands. Lake Cave and Jewel are crystal palaces - beautifully decorated with fully guided tours. Mammoth Cave's first chamber is wheelchair accessible, and in winter there's a wonderful stream running through the cave. Ngilgi and Mammoth Caves are both excellent for kids - Ngilgi's crawl tunnel is a hit with youngsters and both caves have a semi-guided or audio guided format, giving you the freedom to explore at your own pace.

But be sure to book ahead - with a maximum ten people on each tour, these underground tours are sure to fill up quickly. 🔦🌿 📸 @scottslawinski

South west regional borders re-open today, and we're thrilled to welcome visitors to our patch of paradise once again 🧡  It sounds like a few Perth peeps are packing up the kombi and hitting the road, with reports of accommodation businesses heavily booked. Fantastic!

Your down south getaway might look a bit different to usual, with many wineries and restaurants opening at a reduced capacity. We've compiled a list of businesses that are open, plus wineries, restaurants and cafes offering takeaway or deliveries - check out margaretriver.com/whats-open-essential/ (there's a link in our bio). This is also a great opportunity to see and do things differently. Explore some of the awesome nature based adventures on offer; hike a section of the Cape to Cape Track, discover a new beach, hit the mountain bike trails, zip line adventures or underground caves. Refuel at the local bakeries, grab an amazing takeaway from some of the region's best restaurants and conduct your own wine tasting or craft beer research back at the holiday house 🍷😉 .

Welcome back guys. Stay safe, remember to social distance. It's awesome to have you back in the @margaretriver region. 📸 @matteacarson
