When our friends need a hand, we’re there to help.
Fires have devastated communities in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Queensland, and here in the Margaret River region we want to help our friends over east.
Over 50 local businesses in conjunction with the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association and the Margaret River Wine Association have donated prizes for an online auction, with all proceeds going to help the Australian Red Cross Bushfire Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund and regional causes recommended by Wine Australia and the Australian Grape & Wine.
Luxurious stays, helicopter rides, private vineyard and winery tours and sumptuous vintage wine and meals are just some of the auction prizes available to bid on. Wine connoisseurs, there’s a vertical 12 bottle collection of Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay, a Voyager Estate Stay, Wine, Dine experience and a personal tour of the Oates End vineyard with winemaker Cath Oates. Or bid on a decadent Cape Lodge stay, ocean view accommodation at Hamelin Bay Holiday Park or two nights at Wyadup Brook Cottages with a picnic lunch and Cape to Cape Track transfers.
The generosity from people helping those impacted by the fires has been incredible and we encourage everyone to place a bid.
