With the town centrally located in the middle of the Margaret River it is a place for all seasons: be it autumn dawn walks in wooded valleys veiled in mist; cosy winter nights spent with good friends around a roaring fire; spring picnics amid towering karri forests ablaze with wildflowers or summer days lazing on your very own beach by a sparkling sea.
Day 1 – Perth to treetops and Pemberton region.
Travel South through Donnybrook’s famous apple and stone fruit orchards and the rolling farmlands of the Blackwood River Valley, then on through Western Australia’s old growth forest to climb the 51m tall Diamond Tree bushfire watch tower followed by a scenic picnic lunch. Next stop is the Valley of the Giants ‘Tree Top Walk’ which reaches 40 metres high into the forest Canopy. Afterwards, head north-west to the Pemberton region for check-in at your accommodation.
Day 2 – Pemberton region to Margaret River wine region.
Early morning take a short stroll to the majestic Beedelup Falls and then we head North through the stunning Boranup Forest to have the opportunity to climb the 61 metre Gloucester Tree. Then west we arrive at Australia’s most south-westerly point, Augusta, and visit Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse where the Indian and Great Southern Oceans meet. After lunch, we head out to Surfers Point Lookout to see some spectacular coastal views and then north to Mammoth Cave before heading to experience an Australian sheepdog and shearing demonstration at the Yallingup Shearing Shed. Come late afternoon, check in at your accommodation of choice, followed by free time to experience and explore the local surroundings.
Day 3 – Margaret River to Perth.
After breakfast, we head down to enjoy some free time in the main township of Margaret River. Following shopping time, visit the chocolate and cheese factories (time permitting) to taste some of their delicious samples and then sample some of the delicious locally produced wines at a marquee Winery. Following lunch, head to the dramatic coast at Canal Rocks. Journeying home, at Busselton, you’ll see the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere before a leisure drive back to Perth arriving late afternoon.

Majestic forests, exemplary wines and scrumptious farm gate produce make this a must-see stopover on a Western Australian culinary odyssey. Pemberton’s timber heritage is evident through the quaint streetscapes that remain intact from the town’s settlement days and the myriad timber artisan products for sale throughout the shops. The town is considered so well preserved that it was chosen as the setting for the recent Australian film adaption of Jasper Jones, set in a fictional regional WA town in the 1960s.
Recreational activities in the national parks that surround the town site are popular with guests and locals. Canoeing, fishing, swimming, bushwalking and mountain biking are popular pastimes. The Pemberton Mountain Bike Park offers trails for beginners to experts, while the Bibbulmun Track winds past the town and through some of the most enchanting stretches of karri forest.
Margaret River is the home of more than 200 vineyards with a size of more than 5000 hectares.
In the red wine category, Margaret River is best known for its cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. Cabernet is the king of Margaret River, and almost every producer will have one on pour at their cellar door.
