Must-see Margaret River attractions
Just out of Perth is the charming Margaret River. Known for its famous beaches and vineyards, the Margaret River region is filled with places to visit and things to do. If you’re looking for romantic adventures in Perth, or maybe a getaway with friends, Margaret River is a great option to get out of the city and have some fun.
Margaret River Wineries
There are some wonderful Margaret River wineries in this charming wine region. You could wander through the region, listen to a podcast on the local wines (great if you’re driving to Margaret River and need something to listen to in the car), or explore some of our favourite Margaret River vineyards.
Wander into Window’s Estate and meet the Davies family, who work together to run this charming boutique winery. Try some truly unique wines at their cellar door and just maybe find your new favourite wine from the amazing collection of Window’s Estate wines. Chris—the owner and founder—works the vineyard himself to ensure the health and quality of all their grapes, which are then carefully—and with as little machinery and intervention as possible—transformed into amazing wines. Pop in to enjoy a drop and learn more about their wonderful estate from the very people who run it.
Cape Naturaliste Vineyard
Another wonderful winery where you could easily spend the entire afternoon learning about wine and enjoying a good drop. Cape Naturaliste started as an inn, but in the 1970s the owners discovered how rich in minerals the soil was—perfect for growing grapes for wine! Since then, Cape Naturaliste Vineyard has won many awards for their amazing wines, so why not visit and try one or two?
Margaret River tourist Attractions
To most Australian’s, Margaret River might be known for the great wine the region produces, but there’s more to the beautiful little town than just wonderful vineyards! There is plenty of places to visit in Margaret River including art galleries, mountain biking trails, and some natural wonders that we can’t recommend enough.
The Canal Rocks are a natural rock formation, carved by the flowing waters of the Indian Ocean. Now you can walk along a wooden boardwalk over the carved channels and onto the outer rocks that haven’t been eroded. From here you can take in the amazing views of the ocean and the impressive canal.
Injidup Natural Spa
The Injidup Natural Spa is a unique experience you won’t find elsewhere. The so-called spa is actually a small inlet of crisp clean water that is protected from waves by natural rock formations. Here you can pop in for a relaxing dip in the water. The flowing water is great to just float in and relax and it rarely gets too deep so it’s a great activity for the family. On especially good days, the water pouring in over the rocks flows in such a way that you can enjoy a natural, water massage! If the Injidup Natural Spa and the Canal Rocks aren’t enough natural beauty for you, Western Australia has plenty more amazing attractions, maybe something like Rottnest Island is your next escape from the city?
Margaret River beaches
All through WA there are amazing beaches. Something the west coast has over the east coast is the ability to watch the sun set over the dazzling ocean waters. If you head into the city, remember to try out Perth’s best beaches as well as our favourite beaches in Margaret River, south west of the city. These beaches are the top places to visit in Margaret River when it's time to take a dip.
Bunker Bay Beach
City beaches are great for fun in the sun with pals before heading back for a drink and a bite to eat at the pub. But for those of us that love to escape somewhere secluded, Bunker Bay is one of Margaret River’s best-kept secrets. The waters crash against pristine, white sand as well as natural rock formations further up the beach. Go for a dip or just walk along the coastline, with turquoise waters on one side and lush, native flora on the other. The tall green trees offer a welcome respite from the sun when it’s time to cool off after a day at the beach.
Discover fantastic winery accommodation in Margaret River, and get the best of both the beach and vineyards. Bunker Bay is also home to the incredible Pullman Bunker Bay Resort, offering absolute beachfront location with award winning Day Spa for the ultimate rest and relaxation Margaret River holiday.
One half of Yallingup Beach is encircled by shallow reef, creating a tranquil place to swim, snorkel, and splash about with friends and family. The other half is a historic surfing location, somewhere surfers flock to, hoping to catch some waves, to feel the force of the Indian Ocean under their boards. The scenic Yallingup Beach is another beach that is backed by natural plants, creating a cosy and intimate feel. Fire up the barbeque at the Yallingup Beach picnic area and enjoy a few snags after a swim for the quintessential Australian beach day.
