Margaret River Day Tour (MR)
Head down south to Margaret River and enjoy free beer, cider and wine tastings
Ever wonder what the fuss is about Margaret River? Join us for the day and see why the South of Western Australia is so attractive! With its beautiful natural landscapes, big homestead wineries and longest wooden (but steady) jetty in the Southern Hemisphere, you would agree too!
Get the lowdown on the Margaret River region; see the giants of nature, the ancients of nature and wonders of nature on this tour. Eat, drink and be merry!
Highlights of this tour:
This is that longest wooden jetty that stretches 1.8 kilometres long into the sea, across the picturesque Geographe Bay.
Margaret River Brewery
Enjoy a great lunch with complimentary beer tastings at this famous local brewery.
Margaret River Winery
Indulge and delight at the wine testing and see why Margaret River is one of Australia’s greatest wine producing regions.
Walk the cool caves with our guided tour through the chambers and learn about the flora and fauna of this region and its formations.
Look up and see the soaring heights of the Karri trees on our drive through. These pale barked trees reach up to 60 metres tall!

Detailed itinerary of this tour:
It’s a full day trip, so sit back and relax as we head south from Perth through the farmlands (we call them “paddocks”) with grazing cattle and idyllic coast towns along the way. We arrive at Busselton Jetty just in time for a morning tea (at own expense) as you relax and look into the distance to see how loooooong the wooden jetty is.
Going further south into the heart of Margaret River region, it’s time for a gourmet platter lunch of local produce, with complimentary beer and cider tastings at one of the region’s oldest breweries! Remember to take that lunch photo before you get too “happy” at the tastings.
Take a deep breath as we pass through the green lungs of forest as you will be needing it on more tastings now at an internationally acclaimed winery! Buy one or a few or even a carton or two of the bottles of wines you fancy during the tastings!
Nothing like a good workout next as you head for a guided tour at Mammoth Cave to view the ancient stalagmites and stalactites in the vast chambers, and be awed by the Gothic appearance the caves take on.
We head further south still, through the massive pale barked Karri trees of the Boranup Forest. This forest is actually a re-growth forest of over 100 years old, stretching several kilometres long.
Finally, we arrive at the gleaming white Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse in the Augusta region, right at the tip. You get to see the Southern Ocean and Indian Ocean meet in a rare natural phenomenon and feel the winds rush at you. Remember to say hi to “Moorine”!
And we head north on return towards the township of Margaret River for a brief stop to stretch your legs at the main street. We then continue the return journey with a light dinner break (at own expense) at a restaurant en route before heading back to Perth by 9:30 pm. Now that’s a full and fascinating day!
