Things to do in Margaret River

Ten things to do on your next trip to Margaret River

If your looking for things to do in the Margaret River Region look no further! We have carefully put together our bucket list of ten things you must do each and every time you visit Margaret River!

1. Pack a picnic, round up some friends…. or a guitar… and head to Surfers Point to watch the sunset over the ocean. If you forget the picnic you’ll find the Prevelly general store about 500m before the point, they stock a great range of local wine and Seagardens Cafe next door do delicious take away pizza or fish and chips. Check the weather before you head down

Can I just add the photo below has not been filtered or photoshopped – It was just a truly spectacular sunset!

2. Visit a few Wineries, even if your not a “wine person” the architecture, gardens and food alone make it worth while. There are many different ways to see the wineries. Booking a tour is a great option, you’ll see a lot of wineries, taste a lot of wine and no one has to be the designated driver! If you have your own car it’s also great fun to make your own winery tour, that way you can research your favourite wineries to visit or just see where you end up! Option 3, my personal favourite choose just one… and stay for hours enjoying an indulgent long lunch.

3. Take a dip in the Indian Ocean, no matter what season or how cold it looks. You’ll never regret a swim! There are literally hundreds of places to swim in Margaret River. Gnarabup beach is a favourite among swimmers as it’s calm, beautiful and has a cafe for your post swim coffee!

4. Visit the caves!  Hundreds of stunning ancient caves lie beneath the Leeuwin-natraliste ridge. They are simply breathtaking and a great way to escape the sun or rain for a few hours. Currently four are open to the public, and all offer a very different experience.
Mammoth – is self guided with audio headsets, and very easily accessible.
Lake Cave – is guided, relatively short but absolutely stunning. Please note there is over 300 stairs involved.
Jewel Cave –  is the biggest of all the caves and the most award winning, also guided.
Moondyne Cave – isn’t for the faint hearted! after suiting up in overalls, gloves and a head torch you’ll be ready for three hours of underground adventure.

5. Take in the view at “Karri Corner” and discover the magic of Boranup Forrest. A leisurely twenty minute drive south of Margaret River along Caves road will put you deep in the Boranup forest, surrounded by Karri tree’s 60m tall.
