1. Wine tours – The Margaret River region is well known for its world class wine productions. The wines in this region have an outstanding reputation for rich character and quality. Savor the intense and rich flavors of chardonnays, Semillons, cabernets and merlots.

For those who enjoy water sports, Prevelly Park is definitely a must see. Learn to windsurf or kitesurf with a professional instructor using top of the line equipment. It also offers a huge selection of accommodation options which fits all budgets and lifestyles.

3. Caves – There are hundreds of caves found near the Margaret River region all of which are located within the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park. Not all caves in the region are open for public viewing. But you can get to see six of the most amazing caves you’ll ever find – Ngilgi Cave, Jewel Cave, Giants Cave, Lake Cave, Calgardup Cave and of course, the Mammoth Cave which is the most famous among the six cave wonders.

4. Whale watching – From the months of May to December you can witness two amazing types of whales – the Humpback and the Southern Right whales as they travel from Antarctica to the north. Whale watching is truly a great experience that you should never miss out on. You can either take a glimpse of these wonderful marine animals from a scenic vantage point such as the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse or you can get up close to them on one of the best whale watching tours offered in the area.

5. Walk trails – Explore natural bush, vineyards and farmlands in the region. Pass through jarrah, peppermint and karri forest to catch a first-hand view of different bird species in the area including yellow robins, blue wrens and parrots. During the timber boom, the trail was used as part of an old railway network which is why the gradient here is mostly flat. But there are areas where mountain bikes are preferable. The trail starts at Cowaranup and ends at the Margaret River. Cross bridges, rivers, creeks and streams of different sizes and have a picnic along the way.
