Coastal Treasures Between the Capes
The Margaret River Wine Region covers the area between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin and east to Busselton, enveloping a cluster of towns, each with its own distinct personality.
The popular seaside town of Busselton features the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere - a great fishing spot or the perfect place to enjoy a serve of fish and chips.
Busselton Jetty has been described as Australia's greatest artificial reef and is host to an awe inspiring forest of vividly coloured tropical and sub tropical corals, sponges, fish and invertebrates.
Busselton's tranquil waters are an aquatic playground for water-skiers, snorkellers and scuba divers. An underwater observatory allows visitors to experience one of Australia's most fascinating artificial reefs - without getting wet.
Further west, along the coast of north-facing Geographe Bay, is Dunsborough. Blessed with sheltered beaches and beautiful forests, scenic walk trails are easy to find. It's also a highly regarded diving spot boasting the world renowned HMAS Swan dive wreck.
Augusta is the most south-western point of the state, where the Indian and Southern oceans meet. Whales play off the coast here from June to December, and can be easily spotted from the historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.
The massive surf along the coastline has turned Margaret River into a surfing mecca and host to the world-class surfing competition, the Salomon Masters at Margaret River. Even if you don't compete, just watching these talented board-riders is an exhilarating spectator sport in itself.
You'll find calmer waters at Meelup, Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay, so pack a picnic of local food and wine and enjoy a relaxing day by the sea.
With so much to see and do in this part of Western Australia, you'll want to stay a while in one of a wide range of accommodation options. Choose from luxury adult retreats and beachside apartments to quaint bed and breakfasts and family-friendly caravan parks.
