IN A STATE FA­MOUS for its beaches, some of the most beau­ti­ful can be found in the Mar­garet River re­gion of Western Aus­tralia, around 270 kilo­me­tres south of Perth. It’s home to vast snowy white beaches, post­card-per­fect rocky coves and world-class surf­ing breaks.

But it’s not just fish­er­men, surfers and sun wor­ship­pers who’ll love “Margs”. While surf­ing might’ve put it on the map, the re­gion’s flour­ish­ing wine scene has made it a house­hold name.

There are more than 100 cel­lar doors at which to en­joy the nec­tar of the vines, many with fan­tas­tic restau­rants serv­ing mas­ter­ful cui­sine with an em­pha­sis on seafood and lo­cal pro­duce. In­deed, Mar­garet River now holds a rep­u­ta­tion as one of

WA’s premier culi­nary des­ti­na­tions. Trav­ellers can en­joy cook­ing classes, fine din­ing and food fes­ti­vals, in­clud­ing the won­der­ful Mar­garet River Gourmet Es­cape, which at­tracts world-class chefs like Marco Pierre White.

Add to the mix tow­er­ing karri gum forests and ex­ten­sive cave net­works in the re­gion’s breath­tak­ing na­tional parks, and you’ve got an out­door ad­ven­ture play­ground un­like any other.

Al­fresco eats Take part in the Mar­garet River Gourmet Es­cape and en­joy a barbecue on Smiths Beach.

Blue sea & skies Take in the azure waters of the west coast near Cape Nat­u­ral­iste.

Tow­er­ing trees Ex­plore the beauty of the Bo­ranup State For­est.
