Close your eyes and imagine an ideal summer scene.
Smell the sunscreen, feel the sand between your toes and the warmth of the sun on the back of your neck. The salty water is lapping a few metres away, surfers are out on the break and the sound of children playing drifts by on the sea breeze. Maybe you’ve even got a cheeky glass of chardonnay in hand. There’s no need to travel far to turn this vision into reality – just jump behind the wheel and in 3 hours from Perth you’ll hit your spot.
The Margaret River Region is an iconic destination for summer holidays with good reason: it’s all here. Crystal clear beaches, untouched kilometres of white sand, cool walking trails through national forests and countless wineries await with a crisp glass of white.
Here are twelve accommodation picks to suit you, from beachside escapes to cosy farmhouse stays.
