Margaret River Holidays

Margaret River is a small-town south of Perth in western Australia, known for its craft breweries, boutiques and surrounding wineries. Beaches and surf breaks line the nearby coast, whose waters host migratory whales (Jun–Nov). Stretching between 2 lighthouses north and south of the town, the long-distance walk, the Cape to Cape Track, fringes the limestone caves and sea cliffs of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.

The Margaret River region is known around the world for its top-quality wines and food. While the region produces less than 3 per cent of Australia's wine, it accounts for more than a fifth of its premium wine. There are more than 120 world-class wineries to explore, including Vasse Felix, Leeuwin and Voyager Estate, and opportunities to not only try fine wines, but get beyond the cellar doors. Among the many vineyard tours there are also tours that get you behind the scenes to meet winemakers, have a barrel room testing, and potentially even blend your own bottle of wine, coupled with a long lunch. Margaret River is also home to a range of craft breweries and distilleries.
With hundreds of miles of coast fringed by rugged bushland, the Margaret River region offers plenty of adventure off the beaten track. As well as wines, the region is known for its surf beaches on the Indian Ocean, mountain biking along old forest logging tracks, and kayaking up the river itself. Join a Surf N Dirt Adventure Tour to experience the best of Margaret River in one day. Its Live the Lifestyle Tour is limited to seven guests and includes a full day kayaking along the Blackwood River, mountain biking through Boranup Forest, a picnic lunch in a secluded location and a visit to a boutique winery or microbrewery.
Not all the sites are above ground in the Margaret River region. See the "suspended table" at Lake Cave. The "table" is a limestone crystal decoration – weighing several tonnes – that hangs from the ceiling and hovers just above the surface of the cave’s permanent lake. It's believed to be the only formation of its kind in the world. Visit Mammoth Cave, which is wheelchair accessible, and see ancient Australian megafauna fossils, or Jewel Cave Augusta, which is home to the longest straw stalactites in any tourist cave in the world.
