What people say

"Margaret River is a small town south of Perth in western Australia, known for its craft breweries, boutiques and surrounding wineries. Beaches and surf breaks line the nearby coast, whose waters host migratory whales (Junā€“Nov). Stretching between 2 lighthouses north and south of the town, the long-distance walk, the Cape to Cape Track, fringes the limestone caves and sea cliffs of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. 1. It's wine O' clock somewhere in the world and Margaret River has a lot of vineyards to live to those words. ( Passel Estate is my favorite vineyard ) . 2. Go surfing ! Make sure to install sharkSmart on your phone as you enter their natural habit ! NO WORRIES chances that you fall drunk from your bike after a wine tasting are bigger than you getting eaten by a shark. . 3. Put on your hiking boots and take a stroll in Cape Naturaliste NP, Visit the lighthouse or consider the Cape to cape walk for the more adventurous under us. ( It's only 123km ) . 4. Consider a day trip to Dunsborough and/or Busselton as it is maximum a one hour drive and easy to combine. . 5. Go to Hamelin Bay to see the stingrays. Between 09 and 10 AM is the best time as they say ?! I can't confirm this ( as I was late, like usual ) BUT let me know if you saw them at that time. Stop in Jewel Cave after it's one of the biggest show caves in WA so you can tick that off the box. You can easy go to Augusta from here to see the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse and learn about its history. This is also the place where two Oceans meet. Cheers ! "
