Recommended Itinerary

To appreciate and savour what the Margaret River region has to offer, a leisurely 6-night self-drive package is recommended. This sample itinerary can be adapted to your personal needs.

Night 1 – Busselton, Abbey Beach Resort

Without doubt, a stroll along the nearly 2km Busselton Jetty is a must; local anglers seeking out dinner, families and children making the most of the crystal-clear blue waters and tourists taking the tram down to the end of the jetty. For the adrenaline junkies a zipline adventure in Ludlow Tuart Forest could satisfy your afternoon excursion.

Nights 2 & 3 – Yallingup, Seashells Resort

There is nothing more relaxing than an afternoon of snorkelling and swimming in the azure waters of Yallingup Beach. Coupled with a walk up the rugged cliffs to view the Indian Ocean will only make that first cocktail at Caves House Hotel taste even better. Combine a visit to the arts precinct and Ngilgi Cave one day to round out the visit to Yallingup.

Nights 4, 5 & 6 – Margarets in Town

Your stay in Margaret River need not be rushed with 3 nights to savour the boutique wineries, culinary delights and walking/biking trails on offer. If your timing allows a Saturday morning at the Farmers Market will highlight the local delicacies available. Augusta is just a 30-minute drive away. Spend some time at Hardy Inlet to view the various waterbird and fish species.

If time permits for your South-West holiday, an extension to Pemberton and Albany could also be added. Allow at least an additional 2 nights.
