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.
Step out of the city life by going to Gnarabup Beach and Canal Rocks. Discover out-of-the-way places like Yallingup Beach and Meelup Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dunsborough), Ngilgi Cave (in Yallingup) and Jewel Cave (in Augusta). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hamelin Bay, indulge your taste buds at Margaret River Chocolate Company, look for all kinds of wild species at Sunflowers Animal Farm, and do a tasting at Cape Grace Wines.
