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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Surfers Point and Redgate Wines. Visiting Gnarabup Beach and Canal Rocks will get you outdoors. And it doesn't end there: do a tasting at Brookwood Estate, take a memorable drive along Caves Road, enjoy the sand and surf at Hamelin Bay, and indulge your taste buds at Margaret River Venison Farm.
