An easy two and half hour drive from Perth, the Margaret River region offers world-class wine, produce and food, stunning walking trails and beaches, world-famous surf breaks, whale watching, relaxation retreats, ancient caves and forests of timber giants. And those looking for a taste of exploration will find plenty of activities to experience in the spectacular natural landscape. Venture a little off the trail and you’ll find the mild weather and abundant sunshine also produce some extraordinary flavours in the surrounding regions of Bunbury, Pemberton and Manjimup. This year round self-drive itinerary is best seen in four to six days from Perth.
