There are many things to do in Margaret River during Christmas time!
We recommend you kick-start the festive season by watching whales.
Each year Humpback and Southern Right whales make the long journey from Antarctica to the Margaret River region. Whale watching in the Margaret River is a very unique experience. The Margaret River is also perfect for water activities, including canoeing, scuba diving, kayaking, paddle-boarding, boating and kitesurfing.
The Margaret River region has some of the most stunning caves in Australia.
There are more than 150 caves along the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge. These caves belong to a series of complex karst systems which are landscapes formed by the rapid drainage of water underground. There are three magnificent caves to explore- Lake, Mammoth and Jewel! Also check out the Historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse in all its splendour, situated at the most south-westerly tip of Australia.
Christmas is a time to be merry and Margaret River is one of the World’s finest wine regions.
The region is highly regarded for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet blends. Enjoy a tasting at Cape Mentelle, established in 1970 as one of the founding wineries of Margaret River. Or head to Juniper Estate, a producer of premium wines in Willyabrup, in the heart of the Margaret River winegrowing area. It is one of the oldest vineyards in the area.
