The wine adventure tour for people who don't do tours! It’s the Margaret River wine and nature lovers’ experience with the works. Travelling in a luxury 4WD hosted by local expert guide of the year - Sean Blocksidge.
The Margaret River Discovery Tour is currently rated as the #1 Margaret River Tour experience on Tripadvisor (for 17 consecutive years). 

• Start the day with a canoe trip down a stunning section of the tranquil Margaret River. You won’t get wet, dirty or fall in. It’s a peaceful beginning to your day of highlights. 
 
• Then head to the beach to see how the winemakers relax – a coffee while you check the surf at one of the region’s top beach breaks. 

 • The next stop is an ancient waterhole to spot freshwater Marron and wildlife and to taste local honey while you reflect on Aboriginal history dating back more than 50,000 years. 

 • Lunch at one the region’s most celebrated emerging superstar wineries – Fraser Gallop Estate – is our next highlight. You'll have exclusive access to the working winery and vineyard and savour some of the best wines in the region matched with local produce while seated among barrels of ageing wine. 

 • Finish the day with a 4WD adventure and walk on a spectacular section of the Cape to Cape Track – the Wilyabrup Cliffs. You  have special government approval to use a 4WD track that offers stunning cliff top views. High above the Indian Ocean the epic scenery, fresh sea breezes and surrounding ancient soils provide a deeper understanding of the unique Margaret River region.

We had an incredible day, Sean was a fab host and very knowledgeable about every aspect of the tour and more! He is a genuinely lovely person and made us feel so welcome and included in our tour. Canoeing was beautiful and so peaceful on a part of the river that is rarely used, its very relaxing and would definitely say anybody could do it! (100% our favourite part of the day!) Lunch and wine tasting was also amazing and we loved the short hike at the end of the day. All round it is absolutely worth the money for a more intimate, genuine tour of Margaret River. You get to see places most people don't know about/find and Sean adds a great atmosphere to the tour.

My dad and I both had only one day in Margaret river and we could not be happier that we chose Sean’s tour. Canoeing on Margaret river, lunch in a beautiful barrel room with outstanding wines and lovely knowledgeable hosts and topping off the day with some 4wd and walking tracks on the cape to cape coastline. Sean is brimming with local insight, animated and engaging which all made for a jam packed day to also be relaxing. I would more than highly recommend this tour :) thank you Sean!!

One of the most fun and memorable tours we have done anywhere! Sean is a personable and engaging host who has clearly put a lot of thought and effort designing this tour to be different from the rest. The tour is also extraordinarily good value - with only 6 guests, it's essentially a personal tour, going to parts of Margaret River that you won't get to see otherwise. If you want a day you’ll remember, do this tour!

This was, far and away, the best tour we have been on in Australia. In fact, I can't think of a better day tour we have been on anywhere in the world. We started the morning canoeing on the Margaret River. Sean had everything set up, ready to go. All we had to do was step into the (very stable, well-maintained) canoes and enjoy the serenity. Straight up we saw rare black tailed cockatoos. Another highlight was the behind-the-scenes tour and lunch at Fraser Gallop Estate. Gorgeous wines paired with a delicious lunch of local produce sourced by Sean. The tour ended with a 4WD to a section of the Cape to Cape track that we were able to hike. Spectacular views, combined with the engaging, knowledgeable commentary we had experienced from Sean all day. Yes, we saw plenty of wildlife, and ate and drank great produce throughout. The whole day was refreshing, engaging, and exhilarating. My wife and I went on the tour on 21st Dec 2023, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Just do it. There won't be any regrets.
