Margaret River – the perfect family holiday
A family holiday in Western Australia can still comprise of luxury 5 star self contained accommodation at the Roozen Residence with plenty of activities nearby to keep the kids entertained.
Let’s explore close to the beach house…
Directly in front of the house as you walk towards the beach you’ll cross a large park and BBQ area with a great set of slides, swings and climbing gear.
Just over the sand dune from the park is Prevelly beach and a meandering beach path (suitable for walking, prams or bikes) that winds south along the bay to Gnarabup Beach or north past Surfers Point to the river mouth. Hidden between the point and the river mouth you’ll find some crystal clear rock pools to explore.
Surfers Point is the internationally acclaimed break that Margaret River is famous for. It is a great vantage point to watch the surfers, kite surfers and wind surfers.
Head to the river mouth for some seriously fun boogie boarding (if your game) or canoeing down the river. I can recommend both Josh Palmeteers surf school and the Bushtucker Canoe and River tour.
Gnarabup Beach and The White Elephant Beach Cafe are tucked in the southern corner of the bay. It is an easy stroll along the beach path and is usually nice and calm out of the wind. The Elephant is a favourite spot for locals with it’s great coffee, open for from 7am (ish) for breakfast till mid afternoon for lunch.
Always remember to double check with each venue their opening times, tours time etc as these can change with the different seasons.
