Cabin Fever – 13 – 22 July
Margaret River’s winter festival, Cabin Fever, celebrates winter at its finest. With 30 unique events showcasing truck loads of regional produce in epic locations over 10 days of cosy wintry goodness.

Exhilarating beach walk
Enhance the positive energy of the great outdoors and the powerful Indian Ocean this winter. Rug up, find a deserted beach and head out for an invigorating beach walk that will take your break away, the roar and power of the waves are truly exhilarating. My favourite beaches for romantic and energising walks are Boodjidup, Contos and Redgate.
When was the last time you had a massage? Whether you’re chasing relaxation or a remedial therapy, a well earnt and deserving massage is probably well overdue. If you are happy to drive into town, I recommend Body Bliss or Body Therapy by Kellie. Better still, we can recommend a mobile masseuse visit the Roozen Residence – Advance bookings are essential. Please contact me if you would like further details.
What better way to recharge the batteries and nurture the soul than with a blissful guided yoga class.

Long Leisurely Lunch
An extended, leisurely vineyard lunch experience is another ‘must do’ whilst in Margaret River. Vineyard restaurants continually stoke their fires, encouraging foodies to enjoy in the sweeping vineyard views whilst savouring fine wines and outstanding cuisine. No hurry here, you’re on Margaret River time! With so many quality venues to choose from, we’ve been finicky about our favourites and happily share them with you.
Wine Tasting and Cellar Door Experiences
When in Rome, wine touring whilst in the Margaret River wine region is a must! Choose from a specialist wine guide for a personalised itinerary designed especially for you, join a more casual small group tour or discover one of the wine and food pairing experiences on offer at selected cellar doors.
Oh! What to do on a rainy day? Delve underground and explore the magical and jaw-droppingly beautiful limestone caves which lay beneath the surface of the Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge. All of the caves are unique and equally impressive making it hard to choose which one to visit. They vary in size, the number of steps and the types of tours on offer. If you want self guided or not too keen on steps – check with the local TB for some tips.
The Roozen Residence is offering great accommodation deals throughout winter, so pull on a beanie, wrap yourself in a sexy coat and get amongst it.
