Feast on a five-star line-up of wineries, restaurants, breweries and local providores.

Margaret River is regarded by many as the jewel in Western Australia's culinary crown. Known for its world-class surf, beautiful beaches, rolling vineyards and majestic tall-tree forests, this incredibly diverse region offers the perfect setting to indulge in a five-star line-up of wineries, restaurants, breweries, providores and local producers.

Margaret River wineries and breweries

The internationally-renowned Margaret River wine region produces more than 25 per cent of Australia’s premium wines. Take your pick from more than 220 wineries and 100 cellar doors, and plan a day of tastings to sample the extraordinary notes and signatures of the region.

That said, it’s not all about the wine. Rubbing shoulders with the cellar doors are a growing number of boutique Margaret River breweries, crafting award-winning traditional and experimental flavours, from thirst-quenching pale ales to malty stouts.

Impossible-to-resist local produce

Foodies can feast on a profusion of heavenly treats on a tour of the region’s providores and farm shops. Many places let you try before you buy, so tuck in to some scrumptious cheeses, olive oils, tender venison, sweet honey and preserves, chocolate, ice cream and fudge, to name a few.

Venture a little further south and taste WA’s world-class black truffles, fresh marron and cool-climate wines.

Fine dining and award-winning restaurants

With cellars and kitchens so well stocked with top-notch seasonal fresh produce and wines year-round, it's no surprise there’s an abundance of award-winning restaurants in Margaret River.

Select from a degustation menu of elegant flavours with French, Asian and Australasian influences while you drink in sweeping views of vineyards and ocean sunsets, beautifully manicured gardens, stunning beaches and enchanting forests.

See the Australian Good Food Guide for a full list of restaurants.

A feast of farmers’ markets

Hit the farmers’ markets and stock your picnic basket and pantry with some of the best flavours of the South West. Meet the growers and producers face-to-face and scoop some delicious local wines, cheeses, olive oils, gourmet breads, smoked meats, venison, organic seasonal fruit and vegetables, free range eggs and homemade preserves.

Markets are held regularly in Margaret River, as well as Manjimup, Boyanup, Katanning, Eaton and Albany.
