Located 280 km south of Perth, Margaret River has developed into one of the premier destinations on the south coast of Western Australia with a number of quality motels and craft shops.
One of the great attractions of Margaret River are the vineyards and wineries which lie between Busselton and Witchcliffe. The climate in the area is perfect for wine growing.
Another popular tourist attraction is the Berry Farm, 14 km south of Margaret River, where, in season, travellers can gorge themselves on a range of berries including strawberries, raspberries and boysenberries.
It has an excellent privately run museum, and is a pleasant little town with an attractive upmarket feel, and it is in the heart of an area of limestone caves, vineyards, forests of hardwood and attractive coastlines. Its major industries include tourism, dairy cattle and timber.
