Pack your bags and get ready to move down to Margaret River. It might only be fifty kilometres from Busselton, but it’s a totally different world down here, with tall forests and an alternative, earthy sort of vibe.
Settle in to your new home among the trees at Eight Willows Retreat. This is purpose-built accommodation allowing you to retreat from the everyday. Set upon 75 acres of land with 24 luxurious chalets and only 15-20 minutes from the Margaret River townsite, Eight Willows is all about environmental entertainment. Farm-stay facilities including fresh eggs from resident chickens, hand fed joeys around the property, trout fish feeding for guests to experience, and a variety of fruit trees make it the perfect spring getaway.
It’s just a fifteen-minute drive from Gracetown, where you’ll find one of the region’s premier surf breaks at North Point, and a family-friendly swimming beach in the bay. Hiking tracks along the Cape to Cape boast stunning wildflowers at this time of year.
Alternatively families will also love the well-appointed cottages at Margaret River Hideaway & Farmstay. Located just a little north of Margaret River township, the fresh country air and wholesome vibes is the perfect tonic for any city-life stresses. Kids of all ages will love tagging along with Farmer Andrew as he makes his way around the animals at breakfast time, introducing them to alpacas, emus, Scottish Highlander cows, Dorper sheep, chickens and other winged friends. Well behaved dogs are also welcome.
