A low-rise, laid-back town of approximately 4,500 inhabitants, Margaret River serves as an ideal local base to explore the surrounding wine region.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Meelup Beach and Ngilgi Cave. Change things up with these side-trips from Margaret River: Augusta (Jewel Cave & Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse) and Busselton Jetty (in Busselton). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Surfers Point, Head underground at Lake Cave, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, and enjoy the sand and surf at Cowaramup Bay.

Founded as a military outpost in 1826, Albany is the oldest town in Western Australia, just barely gaining this title by being settled two years earlier than Fremantle and Perth.

On your second day here, kick back and relax at Cosy Corner Beach, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Anvil Beach, Nullaki Peninsula, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Greens Pool.

Snaking up the side of a rounded, tree-dotted hill, Hobart sits between Tasmania’s sprawling mountains and the vast estuary of the River Derwent.
On the 31st (Sun), engage your brain at Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, then take in nature's colorful creations at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, then look for all kinds of wild species at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, and finally steep yourself in history at Hobart Convict Penitentiary. Keep things going the next day: steep yourself in history at Battery Point and then contemplate the long history of Cascades Female Factory Historic Site.
