How to Spend 1 Day in Margaret River

How to Spend 1 Day in Margaret River

Replete with beaches, caves, and vineyards, Western Australia’s beautiful Margaret River is popular with foodies and outdoors enthusiasts. Here’s how to make the most of 24 hours in and around this little town south of Perth.

 

Morning: Culinary attractions

If it’s your first time in Margaret River, a wine-themed day trip is a must. Along with the region’s top varietals, most tours showcase cheese, chocolate, and other local food items—and some include stops at nearby beaches or caves. Alternatively, start the day with a caffeine buzz at Yahava KoffeeWorks, and learn about the coffee-making process. 

 

Afternoon: Nature—or wine

If you’re not already on an all-day wine tour, head to a local winery—such as Leeuwin Estate or Voyager Estate—before or after lunch. Wander the vineyards, check out some local art, savor a multicourse meal—or just taste all the wine. If you’re looking for something a bit more active, take a surfing lesson, go canoeing on the river, or explore the region’s natural environment and wildlife.

 

Night: Aussie animals

Like many animals, some Australian species are more active in the evening, and a night tour might be your best chance to see possums, kangaroos, and other marsupials. Your guide will know where the animals hang out, and you’ll learn a bit about their native habitats as well. If you’re simply looking for an evening out, enjoy a nice dinner and glass of wine in Margaret River or another nearby town, such as Dunsborough or Augusta.
