Whicher Ridge is a well-kept secret; an award winning cellar door and wine sensory garden (the only one in Australia) about 20 minutes south of Busselton. The garden gives visitors both a wine education and wine and food pairing experience rolled into one. It is also a fascinating garden for garden lovers to visit as it planted out with heirloom vegetable sand a variety of herbs, flowering plants and fruit trees. Take a seated wine tasting or one of their guided garden tours and tastings, some of which include a lunch hamper full of Jersey Farm Olive Grove goodies.
Word is definitely getting out about Origins Market, and it’s easy to see why with this incredible collection of makers, producers, growers and artisans all under one roof. Tip: arrive hungry, you will want to taste everything!
Western Growers Fresh has fresh fruit and veggies as well as a fabulous selection of pre-prepared meals such as pies and salads, perfect for your self-catered holiday.
Another brilliant addition to the craft brewing scene is Rocky Ridge and their chilled-out cellar door near the foreshore. Margaret River Burger Co is often parked out the back, serving up awesome burgers and fries.
Cheeky Monkey HQ Taphouse is Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co’s lesser known cousin; it’s their production facility in Vasse’s light industrial area. Grab a pizza and taste the complete range of Cheeky Monkey specialty beers.
For a different kind of beer experience, while you’re in Vasse stop in at The Sophisticated Beast – a tiny micro brewery doing big things.
Burger Bones on the main strip in Busselton has a cult-like following – we’ve queued next to people who’ve made the journey from Perth especially for one of their burgers.
