Love wine? Love surf? Love wildlife? Margaret River, Western Australia, is the place for you.
Located 3 hours south of Perth, this lovely region is really a hidden gem. I fell in love with it on my recent visit. Not only does it provide beautiful landscapes, it had some of the countries best food and wine experiences as well. Specializing in Bordeaux style wines, Margaret River consistently delivers superb wines from some of Australia’s top boutique producers. If amazing meals are more your style, fear not, there are a ton to choose from. One of my favorites is the degustation menu at Cape Lodge. And if you stay there, you only have to waddle back to your room!

For those in search of something a bit more active, there is plenty to choose from. ATV over some of Australia’s finest bush. Kayak in pristine waters. Or try your luck in surfing some of the worlds’ best breaks.
Margaret River is truly one of a kind. My favorite memory? Sipping champagne while I watched the sunset on the Indian Ocean. The rainbow that appeared earlier that day while we were observing kangaroos wasn’t too shabby either! If you find yourself out west, do yourself a favor and spend some time in Margaret River. You won’t be disappointed!
