Yallingup

Towns of the Region

The Margaret River Region stretches over 130 kilometres north to south, and each town and subregion is unique and wonderful.

In the north you’ll find Busselton, Dunsborough and Yallingup. Margaret River – the town and river – is roughly in the middle, a few kilometres from the ocean. And Augusta is at the southern tip where two rivers and two oceans meet.

 

Busselton is the place to swim, fish and play in the calm waters of Geographe Bay. Families congregate at the historic Busselton Jetty precinct, eating fish and chips and enjoying the sporting and cultural events. Discover the coral ecosystem beneath the southern hemisphere’s longest timber pile jetty, soak up the sunshine at a craft brewery or practice beach cricket along this beautiful stretch of sand.

The coastal enclaves of Dunsborough and Yallingup offer stunning natural scenery; million-dollar ocean views across a world-famous surf break at Yallingup, ancient granite coastal landforms plus countless pristine beaches. Inland, the rolling hills are dotted with vineyards offering up superb fine wine and dining experiences.

Margaret River’s tall timbers and rich soils give us a wealth of fine wine and incredible produce, but also grow creativity. Fuel up at the Farmers Market or visit one of the galleries to meet some of the vibrant souls who call this place home. Find sanctity in the majestic Boranup Karri Forest or deep underground at Mammoth Cave and get an adrenaline buzz at Surfers Point.

Augusta is a charming hilltop town with a close-knit community and sweeping river views. Relax in the untouched environment; witness the annual whale migration, taste abalone fresh off the boat, hire a houseboat and let Hamelin Bay’s resident sting rays glide past your feet. Learn the fascinating maritime history at the award-winning Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse precinct and discover Jewel Cave.
