A winery tour is essential for any trip to the Margaret River Wine Region. For the discerning wine connoisseur, the pleasure of being escorted to the area's premium wineries and the option of a delightful lunch at one of the many prestigious eateries is characteristic of the area.
It's hard to choose from so many great operators, however my preference is a small private operator, one on one, where it's all about you and not the masses!
If you are looking for an expert wine guide, Nola from Lifestyle Margaret River and Rob from My Driver Margaret River both come highly recommended with many years experience in the wine and tourism industry.
Our top pics for unique scenic tours, cultural experiences and guided eco-tours is Margaret River Discovery Company (who provided this stunning picture above of his guests enjoying a private vineyard lunch), Cape to Cape Explorer Tours and Margaret River Adventure Co.
For the ultimate whale watching experience, check out Steep Point, the newest, biggest and most luxurious whale watching boat in the south west! The season operates from late May to August from Augusta, an easy 30 minute drive from The Roozen Residence.
