Eat and Drink
Margaret River is one of Australia’s most renowned food and wine regions, with the abundant cellar doors and boutique breweries complementing the rich, organic produce that can be found at farmers’ markets, cafes, and specialty stores across the southwest. Home to over 175 wineries, producing varietals of Chardonnay, Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc blends and Cabernet Sauvignon blends, the Margaret River wine region extends some 100km from north to south and reflects a more Mediterranean-style of climate, that is ideal for growing grapes. Coupled with these cellar doors, there are a number of growing boutique breweries that deliver thirst-quenching ales, craft beer and malty stouts.
Margaret River has become renowned for its fine dining experiences and eclectic flavours, ensuring that wherever there is wine, there will also be food. Local providores litter the countryside, celebrating the region’s fresh produce such as specialty cheeses and olive oils, fresh seafood and rich sweets.
Land and Sea
The varied landscape of Margaret River is characterised by native trees, forests and flowers, as well as the crisscrossing routes of small creeks and valleys. Several hundred caves also span this unique landscape, out of which only 6 are open to the public, and contain multi-chambers of prehistoric fossils and hidden depths to be explored. In addition to this, Margaret River is also renowned for its fruitful timber and agriculture production.
As well as the iconic river to which it owes its name, the Margaret River region also possesses unspoiled views of the Indian Ocean, and a string of surf beaches that have all helped put Margs on the map. From the sandy shores of Redgate to the legendary breaks at Prevelly and Cowaramup, Margaret River has some of the most popular surfing beaches in the world and is just as renowned for its waves as it is for its wines.
