Dillen Watson is Duty Manager at Forest Adventures South West. When he’s not swinging through the trees, this local adventurer can be found at the region’s best breweries or cruising the Cape to Cape. A straight talker, Dillen was upfront with his favourites.

1. What’s your favourite beach ?

Point Picquet. It’s a lovely spot to relax and you might even see the whales cruising past.

2. Where do you always take your visitors?

This might become a theme in my answers but we always take people to The Beerfarm. It’s my favourite spot to have a beer and sit in the sun. And it’s also a dog-friendly venue which is always a bonus.

3. Top three local food experiences ?

Now that is a very tough question. There are so many options within the region. I think top for me would be Little Fish near Yallingup – great food and great people. Up there will also be Fishbone Wines and Morries in Margaret River.

4. Your personal wine or beer recommendation?

Hard to narrow down between The Eagle Bay Kolsch and The Beerfarm’s Aussie Lager. Tough choice but both will get me through any afternoon perfectly. If I’m choosing wine it is anything from Churchview Estate. 

5. Best fun in the region without spending a cent ?

I’m partial to a bushwalk at Cape Naturaliste. The whale lookout is a great way to start your day. There are also heaps of other walks around there as well running between Cape Nat and Sugarloaf Rock that are suitable for all levels. The view really is second to none.

6. Favourite time of year ?

Most might say summer but I think the best weather is definitely through Autumn. Plus the salmon running makes for a few fun filled days fishing.

7. Best place to watch the sunset ?

Sugarloaf Rock. It’s a special spot with a magic sunset.

8. You can’t leave the Margaret River Region without doing what…?

Well besides visiting us out here at Forest Adventures, has to be walking the Jetty in Busselton. You have not done the Margaret River Region if you haven’t walked the length of the jetty.
