This page is a guide to accessible accommodation, experiences and attractions. From luxury hotels, to wineries and getting out in nature we’re working with our local operators to curate All Person Access information in one convenient location.

If you have any feedback please send it through to [email protected] or phone (08) 9780 5911.

 

The Margaret River Region has a range of experiences for visitors with access and special needs to enjoy.  For specific advice on what might suit your needs, contact one of our local visitor centre consultants for recommendations by phone (08) 9780 5911 or email [email protected].

Cape to Cape Track Access for All Section

The grand, sweeping scenic experience that is the famed Cape to Cape Track is easily accessible to everyone, thanks to an upgraded section between Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and the Sugarloaf Rock car park.

There are other sections of the Cape to Cape track that accommodate wheelchairs, prams, walking frames and other mobility devices.
