In the Great Southern, cool-climate wines are carefully crafted against a striking backdrop of some of the world’s most diverse National Heritage landscapes. To the north, the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges are havens for unique flora and fauna, and to the south, wild sweeping beaches meet majestic tall-tree forests.

The Albany Highway from Perth will get you to Mount Barker - the northern gateway to the Great Southern Wine Region - in just over four hours. If you’re following the Great South West Edge drive trail or walking the mighty Bibbulmun Track, you can get your first taste of Great Southern wines in the coastal country town of Denmark.

Take a little time to meet the makers, and sample their unique community life in the vineyards. Then pair your chosen wine with a stunning view, artisanal local produce and good company to share your stories after a full day of adventure. Whatever your tastes, a crafted local wine makes the perfect accompaniment to your Great Southern experience.
