April is a huge month for the Margaret River Region, abuzz with the Easter and Anzac Day long weekends, ensuring there is always a full line-up of events to keep visitors entertained.
The Margaret River Pro surfing event returns with a bang, and will see the usual carnival of the sport’s royalty return to HQ at Surfer’s Point from April 24. This is your chance to watch the gladiators of the sea live and in action, or snap a photo or get an autograph with them up close! The Surfer’s Point carpark gets transformed into a spectators’ arena, complete with live commentary, big screens, food trucks, merchandise and more. The “Pro” is definitely a Margaret River bucket list experience, taking advantage of the region’s awesome autumnal swell and wind conditions.
The other event to watch is a brand-new music festival (remember those? Sorely missed!) with the region excited to host Out Of The Woods at Barnard Park on the Busselton Foreshore over two days on April 23 and 24. The event promises a funky, eccentric return to music festival vibes (partnering with Triple J), complete with bonafide Australian acts Angus & Julia Stone, Grinspoon, Ball Park Music, Holy Holy, and Jack River. However, these mentions don’t even scratch the surface of the massive line-up – be sure to check out the website for the full weekend of music, art and adventure.
