Named the #1 Asia Pacific destination by Lonely Planet for 2019, the spectacular Margaret River Region welcomes travelers from around the world like no other destination in Australia.
A pleasant three-hour drive south of Perth, Western Australia’s premier holiday region offers a unique range of pristine natural attractions, premium wineries and craft breweries, fine restaurants, handmade arts & crafts, unspoiled beaches, towering karri forests and friendly locals. Blessed with a mild Mediterranean maritime climate, the four seasons are gently defined in this relaxed and soulful corner of the country.
Meaning ‘place of caves’, Yallingup is splendidly nestled on a ridge, surrounded by the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park with spectacular views west over Yallingup Beach out to the Indian Ocean.
A surfside mecca, Yallingup has bred some of the world’s greatest surfers and you’ll soon see why with a visit to Yallingup Beach, Smiths Beach and Injidup. They’re awesome places to watch the surf (and the surfers!). The tranquil crystal-clear lagoon at Yallingup Beach is lovely for snorkelling and swimming and one of the main Yallingup attractions. And a swim is especially deserved if you’ve explored a bit further along the pristine white sandy beach to the rugged cliffs or on the Cape to Cape Track.
So inspiring are the landscapes, Yallingup has become a hub for artisans, with more galleries, studios and craft workshops than anywhere else in Your Margaret River Region. Combined with the food, wine and craft beer offering no wonder Australian Traveller magazine named Yallingup #1 in its 100 Best Towns in Australia issue for 2019.
Located on the stunning turquoise banks of Geographe Bay and the Ngari Marine Park, Dunsborough would have to have one of the most tranquil and magnificent locations in the world.
Sparkling calm clear water and white sandy Dunsborough beaches are linked to town by lush green grass and shady paths. There is a bustling café atmosphere and plenty of gorgeous boutique shops. At night there’s a great vibe with brew houses, wine bars and pubs with a live music scene, restaurants and cafes.
Beachfront cycle ways and walking paths turn into a hiking trail through the regional park along the bay. With ideal beaches for swimming it is also a great location for diving, snorkelling, kayaking and other water sports. There are even two golf courses, one which comes with its own mob of kangaroos!
Out on the most north-western point is the top end of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, which is one of the many Dunsborough attractions. This precinct is home to Dunsborough’s working lighthouse, Cape Naturaliste and the starting point of the iconic 135km walking trail, the Cape to Cape Track.
Built on the foundation of surfing and family holidays, this resort town has grown into a holiday spot rich in luxury and fun, ideal for family, friends, couples and backpackers.
