Margaret River: A Region Reserved for Fun, Adventure and Food

Sailing in Margaret RiverLook no further than a Margaret River restaurant when looking for good food. Make sure to add an extra day or two in your holiday to sample most, if not all of them.

Here is The Berry Farm‘s guide to a food trip in Margaret River.

Wine and Cheese

You might want to visit the Farmer’s Markets and indulge yourself with fresh produce, artisan cheeses and delicious hand-made chocolates.

Don’t forget to taste the local brews and tour the cellar doors. Some of Australia’s best cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, semillon, sauvignon blanc, merlot and shiraz wines are produced in this region. This doesn’t come as a surprise since 15 percent of Australia’s premium wine comes from Margaret River. This is truly heaven for all the wine connoisseurs out there.

The Great South West

After satisfying your cravings for wine and cheese, it’s time to explore Western Australia’s Great South West. From award-winning wineries and restaurants to stunning beaches in just a few hours, your visit will not be wasted. There are also activities for the more adventurous tourist. You can go abseiling, mountain biking, canoeing, rock climbing and surfing in world-class surf breaks.

When you’re done with the more adventurous activities, you can wind down with nature appreciation activities. Visit the lush forests and get lost in some of the world’s tallest hardwood trees or be ready to be blown away by the longest straw stalactite in one of the ancient show caves open to the public in Western Australia, the Jewel Cave. You can also while away the time frolicking on the beautiful beaches.

For a more relaxing endeavour, watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean, go swimming with dolphins or spot migrating whales.

Food and nature lovers will surely enjoy visiting Margaret River but if you really want to experience most of what it can offer, time your visit with the annual wine and food festivals.
