WINE TOURS OF THE MARGARET RIVER
Join luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent on an unforgettable, seven-day gastronomic getaway in Western Australia’s Margaret River region. A three-hour drive from Perth, the area is blessed with a breathtaking coastline and an extraordinary amount of gourmet produce; this region boasts more than 150 wine producers and accounts for 15 per cent of Australia’s premium wines. Abercrombie & Kent’s chauffeured tour is led by a local expert, who will escort you from vineyard to vineyard as you sample the best local wines. Private barrel tastings and ‘meet the maker’ experiences can also be arranged. Expect accommodation that’s as refined as the merlot you imbibe, with highlights including stays at the award-winning Cape Lodge, the designer-chic Silkwood Winery and Chalets, and The Beach House at Bayside.
Check out the impressive scenery
While Margaret River is most famous for its wineries, it’s also known as being home to some of the most unique and stunning cave experiences in Australia. Make sure you pay a visit to the Jewel, Lake and Mammoth Caves—a Grand Tour Pass will give you access to all three. Feeling adventurous? Don a hard hat, grab a torch and head into the Moondyne Cave for a taste of caving in limestone caverns. Above ground, you can see whales aplenty between May and December. Many local farms will also let you get up-close-andpersonal with their furry inhabitants.
