Here is the South West region

Serving up a coastal culinary adventure, the world-class Margaret River Region is an unparalleled destination for gourmet experiences and unforgettable outdoor adventures.

Amid its sprawling vineyards, you’ll find welcoming cellar doors, award-winning restaurants, local providores and distilleries just waiting to be discovered. Beyond the delicious food and wine scene, the South West’s natural attractions invite adventurous travellers to explore.

Take to the ocean at the breathtaking surfing, swimming and snorkelling spots dotted along the coast, or spot humpback whales majestically making their way through the water on their annual migration.

On land, walk among the leafy giants of the area’s tall timber forests, connect with Aboriginal culture in Wadandi and Bibbulmun country, and experience barefoot luxury on a section of the iconic Cape to Cape Track.
