Margaret River used to be a chilled out surfing town… Well, the surf is still up and the beach still beckons but these days you’ll find a change in style; more sophistication and class. You can enjoy world-class restaurants, sample award-winning wines and indulge in heavenly beauty and spa treatments.
Places to stay at Margaret River range from smart resorts scattered along the coast to chic apartment-style accommodation located in the township. Wander downtown for coffee, gourmet supplies, art galleries and book store browsing.
Margaret River is still about natural beauty of course; uncrowded beaches, a pristine environment, stunning drives through karri forests and grazing lands. We are sure you will enjoy the mix of sophistication and nature.
