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 Hamelin Bay and Howard Park - Margaret River Winery and Cellar Door. Change things up with a short trip to Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse in Augusta (about 42 minutes away). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cowaramup Bay, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and do a tasting at Redgate Wines.

For photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Margaret River trip itinerary planner .

The Route module can help you plan travel from Clare to Margaret River. The time zone difference moving from Australian Central Standard Time (South Australia) to Australian Western Standard Time is minus 1 hour. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Hobart.
