Margaret River Wine Region

Wine, surf and seriously good food

While renowned for its beautiful wines and seriously good gourmet food, Margaret River doesn't just appeal to traveller’s tastebuds. It's also an ideal destination for surfing enthusiasts, nature lovers and those just wanting to kick back on a picturesque beach and enjoy the superb weather. And to top it off, the friendly atmosphere and locals who don’t take things too seriously makes Margaret River a perfect fuss-free getaway.

Sweet toothed visitors will be in heaven with a trip to the Chocolate Company, known for their high quality and extensive range of beautiful chocolates. From truffles and flavoured bites to sauces and chocolate beauty products, you'll be salivating in no time. Better yet, there are free tastings daily! If it’s a hearty meal you're after, head to the Settlers Tavern which was named in the West Australian Good Food Guide’s Top 5 Pub Food list. There is always a bustling atmosphere and the food is guaranteed to satisfy any hungry customer. Satisfying those tastebuds is a must-do in this region.

Good weather in Spring

Autumn is the perfect time to visit Margaret River for those who like a good wine, as the vines are full with plump grapes and the weather is perfect for cellar door hopping. Pro surfers or those who just enjoy watching the surfers in action should aim to visit the region in early April for the international Drug Aware Margaret River Pro surfing event. If it's just good weather you're after, then book your break in Spring and avoid the crowds during school holidays.
