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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Woodlands Wines and Mammoth Cave. Change things up with these side-trips from Margaret River: Augusta (Jewel Cave & Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse). There's much more to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Lake Cave, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area.

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

Athens, Greece to Margaret River is an approximately 30-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Athens to Margaret River. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sat) early enough to drive to Albany.

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Desert Mounted Corps Memorial and Parry Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Albany: Denmark (Anvil Beach, Harewood Estate Winery, & more) and Cheynes Beach (in Waychinicup National Park). There's lots more to do: explore and take pictures at Replica of the Brig Amity, take in the dramatic natural features at The Gap and Natural Bridge, examine the collection at National Anzac Centre, and stroll through Misery Beach.

There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Barnabas Chapel, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Pitt, head off the coast to Nepean Island, and try for a hole-in-one at Walk in the Wild.
