WHAT TO EXPECT
Visiting the world-renowned Margaret River region is a bucket list experience. Sheltered bays to the north with turquoise waters, vineyards and rugged surf coast along its length and two oceans meeting at the southern tip. This beautiful wine country, with a thriving art scene and great food, has something for everyone.
This small-group tour will give you a taste of everything this region has on offer from its natural beauty to its award-winning wines. The first stop of the day is the Crooked Carrot Cafe at the halfway mark for coffee and food.
Next, it's on to Cowaramup, affectionately known as "Cow Town". It's the gateway to the Margaret River Region and a must stop for the delightful country town experience. Choose your own adventure from wine tasting at the Margaret River Wine Store, sample chocolate at Temper Temper Chocolate or stock up on regional delights at the Gourmet Food merchant. Following this, you'll visit the Margaret River Township, which is home to many exceptional artists. Stroll along the main strip to visit some galleries and maybe grab a coffee as you browse what's on offer.
Afterwards, you'll head towards the coast. Gnarabup is the best place to enjoy casual beachside dining for lunch overlooking the Indian Ocean at the local favourite, the White Elephant Cafe (own expense). Help digest your meal with a quick walk along the coastal boardwalk which is part of the Cape to Cape hiking trail. The tour moves on to Surfers Point, the iconic hub of the South West's surf culture. Renowned for its monstrous swells it now attracts the best surfers in the world as part of the professional world surfing circuit.
Stop in at Passel Estate, a small block winery situated in the heart of the world-renowned Margaret River wine region. Enjoy a wine tasting experience (own expense – $10 per person) in the contemporary tasting room featuring floor to ceiling glass on three sides to guarantee an intimate connection with the surrounding vines and natural bushland sanctuary.
Canal Rocks and the Natural Aquarium Lookout are next. Over the years the granite has been carved away by the ocean forming deep crevasses and the canal for which the area is named. Walk along the boardwalk and look for sea creatures in their natural habitat. Set high on the cliff, the Natural Aquarium Lookout gives an awesome perspective of the bays and beaches in the Yallingup region.
Meelup is a family favourite where the Australian bush meets the sea. Enjoy a grazing board of local goodies with a glass of wine, go for a swim in the turquoise waters, take a walk on the beach or sit back and relax and plan your next Margaret River adventure.
To end the day, visit the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere – Busselton Jetty. Go for a walk along it as the sun is setting or you may wish to visit Shelter Brewery to experience locally made beer and cider while enjoying the view over Geographe Bay, before the final leg back to Perth.
