Margaret River

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Lake Cave. Explore Margaret River's surroundings by going to Ngilgi Cave (in Yallingup), Meelup Beach (in Dunsborough) and Augusta (Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse & Jewel Cave). Next up on the itinerary: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, explore the fascinating underground world of Mammoth Cave, look for all kinds of wild species at Sunflowers Animal Farm, and take in the dramatic natural features at Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs.

A modern metropolis of glassy skyscrapers, waterside boulevards, and lush residential neighborhoods, Perth sits on the edge of the Swan Coastal Plain.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like The Perth Mint and St. Mary's Cathedral. Get outdoors at Swan River and Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, don't miss a visit to The Bell Tower, and enjoy some diversion at The Nostalgia Box Museum.

Plan my Perth trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
